American Girl Dolls!


When I was younger I loved to play with American Girls. I got my first one for Christmas one year. I was so excited! I started to save up my money so I could buy my self another so my doll would have someone to play with. I saved my allowance and my change. Eventually I had all $95 that I needed to buy my own doll! Then it came in the mail! I couldnt wait to start playing with my dolls! The next big fad was food and clothes! I couldnt get enough of them. My dolls could always use a new outfit! As a present my grandma gave me some sewing patterns for my dolls! I spent days cutting out the patterns! Then my grandma took me shopping and we got fabric. When we came home we spent the day making my first doll dress!


Since then the doll dress patterns have been sitting on a shelf and my collection eventually had grown to 10 dolls! I found the patterns yesterday and decided to try them out! And wouldnt you know they are super easy and super cute to make! Ive made 3 since yesterday afternoon! All 3 of them are up for sale on my site! I figured I could bring some other little girl joy from these dresses. I remember how much fun I had and just couldnt resist making these for other little girls!
