These little doll size stockings are so cute!
What a great way to use up some fabric scraps or make them with felt.
Make several to make a garland for your doll house, or make individually to hang or give as gifts.

New items added and more to come….
I have added some new holiday items to my Etsy shop that I hope you will like. I have more to come but I still have to take pictures.
These will make great stocking stuffers and ship for free (US).
I worried that I might be too early for Christmas shoppers but some have actually already sold (yay!).
Some of he necklaces also make great gifts for Hanukkah or just to celebrate a winter holiday as they are winter themes such as bells and snowflakes.
I’m also working on a new outfit that I should have finished soon so come back again please!

This is what I’ve been working on…
“Haley” is a 3-piece outfit that includes a fully-lined blazer with a floral applique.
The jacket closes in the front with 2 snaps. The buttons are sewn on but they are only decorative.
The matching skirt wraps around and closes in the back with velcro and features a polka dot ribbon trim.
Completing the outfit is a cute little sleeveless top in pink with little brown hearts.
I also made the boots to match (but they are not for sale)
Now available in my Etsy shop here
And….(fanfare please)…I had my first sale! I am so excited and thrilled that someone purchased not.one, but 3 of my shop items!
I am truly grateful.
Come back to see what else I’m working on. (Or you can just follow me.) Thanks!
Don’t these boots look so cozy & warm?
I made these “Sherpa” boots (they are a synthetic blend and not real wool) and I’m really happy with the way they turned out. I sewed them completely by hand.
They feature a small Velcro tab closure and soft soles.
These boots are for sale in my Etsy Shop.
Want to make a cute Candy Corn dress for your American Girl Doll?
You can make this simple, but cute, Halloween-themed candy corn dress for your dolls with a t-shirt pattern. You can use a pattern you already have, or use this one. Over at Pixie Faire, they’ve provided a full tutorial on how to make this dress (they call it a “quick” craft).
I’m keeping this tutorial to make later. I have several projects I’m working on sewing right now, so this dress will have to wait. Stay tuned to see some new outfits soon!
