A Gardening Outfit Fit for a Doll

10 July

Do you know a little someone who’s into the 18″ doll craze?  I do, and I LOVE sewing items for her doll.  Almost as much as she loves receiving them.

Making doll clothes is ridiculously fun – they are so sweet and cute, they make great use of fabric remnants, and they take no time at all.  I couldn’t help but pick up a couple of 18″ doll patterns recently on sale at  Jo-Ann Fabrics.  My niece’s birthday is coming up, so a doll outfit is in order!

I chose 18″ Doll Clothes M6451 pattern by McCall’s.  The pattern has really cute aprons, hats, bags, and even a cat.  It also has directions for some really versatile tops and pants.  I decided to make the gardening line: an apron, hat, and bag.

The pattern was pretty simple.  The hardest part was sewing the round part of the hat – there was a little puckering, but that’s okay.

The fabric for the hat and bag came from my stash – a LONG ago purchase from Jo-Ann’s.  The apron fabric is repurposed from a thrifted cotton skirt.  I loved being able to use some uber-tiny rick rack on the apron.

My favorite was the little bag – how cute is that?  It was a cinch to make.  The small scale cotton print and the tiny ribbon handles…so sweet.
