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!
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!

Now I’m going to have to go out and get some candy corn!! Love the stuff (especially the ones with the chocolate mixed in).
Available first to Doll Things readers:
I am planning to open an online store in the near future and will offer my handmade items for sale.
But first – I am offering the exclusive opportunity to purchase this outfit to my Doll Things readers.
“The Anne” outfit includes:
- Tie-dyed shortalls (short overalls). The shorts feature cuffs that are sewn down so they don’t come unrolled. Straps cross in the back and are attached in front with Velcro. The fun flower-shaped buttons are non-working.
- Custom tie-died (by me) long-sleeve cotton t-shirt. Shirt closes in the back with Velcro, and can be worn with many other outfits due to the mixture of colors.
- Peace sign pendant necklace. The metal pendant is attached to a satin ribbon which ties in the back.
- Optional strappy green sandals. Cute cute! The straps cross in the front and use a small piece of Velcro to hold. Flower-shaped beads dress up the front of the sandals. (Note: the beads are glued on well, but will probably come off if pulled on hard enough. Not recommended for very small children)
All items are designed and handmade by me (except the peace sign pendant) and this outfit is one of a kind.
Due to the small parts of this outfit, it is not recommended for small children
Doll not included.
If you are interested in purchasing the outfit, please contact me via email at:
dawnnewsome at yahoo .com, or leave a comment.. Shipping costs will vary, but should be less than $4 (to US). I can accept payment via Paypal at this time.
The outfit is for sale to any Doll Things reader for a short period of time, then if it’s not sold, I will offer it for sale to the public.
Please tell me what you think! This is my first “for sale” item, guys.
Edit: This outfit is now for sale in my Etsy shop!
The inspiration dress:
The Charabia Emilie Dress. The brand is not one I’m very familiar with, but I liked this dress and thought it would be fun to do my own version. I didn’t have the mirrored paillettes like the original, so I used sequins instead.
Here’s my version:
Mine is obviously not pink. It’s black linen. I sewed the sequins on one by one. That was the hardest part!
The dress closes in the back with a snap.
If you would like to purchase the original Charabia dress it’s on sale for $139.99. It was $239.99, so that’s a bargain, huh?
I love taking a designer outfit and making my own version. When you think about it, that’s where most designs come from – something someone has seen that inspires them. Then they just make it their own, like I did here.
