Do you know of the American Girl Dolls?? They were big when I was a young girl and have only gotten bigger with time. I have held on to my doll hoping to pass it down to my daughter some day. Imagine my excitement when she brought home an American Girl doll magazine that a friend gave her at school and just loved the dolls and wanted one for Christmas so, so much. (Although, she wanted one of the newer dolls, but to be fair, this one isn't even available anymore, I think she will still love it) Anyhow, I found my doll in storage and pulled her out to place under the tree for Christmas morning.
When I pulled the doll out I ran down to my little pattern box and pulled out some of these cute doll patterns that I had planned to make to go with the doll when she was old enough for it. Ya, that didn't happen. Honestly, I have looked over the instructions and get totally intimated and then just stuff them back in the envelope. So this might be a next year Christmas, or the next, or maybe I will just end up buying them (I really am not good at 3D sewing).
But I still wanted something to go with the doll this year to make it a little more to date . . . so I decided that what I can make before Christmas is a new bedspread for the dolls bed. And how cute would it be for your doll's bedspread to match yours!! My Star's Quilt-A-Long quilt is on my daughter's bed so out come the Heirloom scraps and now for some star making fun. I just can't decide which one to make :)
And I couldn't help but add this last photo. This is what happens in my house when I get an idea and start hunting fabric while the little one is awake ;) She is walking now and gets into everything!!! (But seriously, how cute is this, she played with the noodles for 45 minutes had a blast, and it was just a quick sweep to clean up :)
