My friend’s daughter just celebrated her 7th birthday! She mentioned once that she wanted clothes for her doll, but then changed her mind and said she’d like a gift card to one of her favorite clothing stores. And then she changed her mind again. She hasn’t decided what she wants to do in terms of a party either, much to her mother’s dismay. So when she does, I want to be ready.
Ahhhh, to be a 7 years old again!
I made these two outfits for her doll. I found the straight skirt pattern from Day Dream Doll Boutique. Recognize the fabric? It’s leftover scraps from the up-cycled men’s button down shirt into a Japanese knot bag I did a couple of weeks ago! I also made a door latch cover with it. I’ll save that for another post. The ruffle skirt was from a youtube tutorial from pinkiepinkgirl. Her blog is http://www.18inchdollclothesz.com. She was featured in Sew Mama Sew so you know she’s legit! The fabric is left over tie dyed T-shirt that was incorporated into a T-shirt quilt for my niece. One of these days, I’ll write up a post on it. The tank top pattern came from Liberty Jane Patterns. The fabric is also left over t-shirts from previous t-shirt quilts.
I made little removeable flower pins and then hot glued some rhinestones on them. I’m sassy that way!
The entire project cost me FREE dollars!
Now I can fill the piggy with some real dollars and she can do what she wants with it!
What projects have you made as gifts that cost you nothing to make?
