You know how I took some time off?
Well, here is one of the projects I completed
while I was away.
Our little SweetCheeks got an
American Girl Doll, Ruthie,
for her birthday in November.
What does a new doll need?
Why-new clothes, of course!
So, Nana decided to whip up some clothes
for her special girl.
I have always loved
Mary Engelbreit fabrics.
This is one of my favorite pieces.
I have enough left to make SweetCheeks
a matching skirt.
If she isn't doing a casual dress she needs
something a little bit fancier to match
her cute new shoes.
I made a matching bow and I always
do a finished lining inside the bodice.
For Wisconsin winters you need a skating outfit.
Not in the mood for skating?
Then reverse the skirt and add a fur vest.
This outfit makes use of one of Dad's
discarded jeans (using material from the leg)
Gotta have something to wear with those sneakers.
Perhaps you like PINK
AND you need a backpack with "accessories".
Christmas Eve we always give the grandkids
Ruthie needed pjs to match SweetCheeks
new pjs. I think these come pretty close.
I thought I had a picture of
SweetCheeks and Ruthie in their matching pjs...
Anyway, when SweetCheeks and Ruthie
decide to run away from home
they can do it in style.
This was her Christmas present
from Papa and me.
However, IF she is heading for
Hollywood to make the best dressed list
she might want to leave her socks at home.
LOL- She IS going to hate me someday
