American Cowgirl: A doll clothes adventure

Another doll clothes adventure. This one was a hodge podge of patterns and ideas. If you're interested in recreating it, here's how I did it.

The hat can be found at Hobby Lobby. I dressed it up with a brad and some extra material.

The skirt pattern can be found in Simplicity Sewing Pattern 3936 Doll Clothes. My first time doing gathering, and there was a lot of it!!

The vest pattern is also fromSimplicity Sewing Pattern 3936 Doll Clothes

The lacy trimmed off shoulder blouse under the vest was my own creation. 

Please join our flickr group and upload pictures of your cowgirl outfits or any other Finding Pins and Needles projects. I'd love to see them!

Make a SWEET treat to say thanks to your bus driver for keeping your child safe this year. Feel free to use my free printable stop sign card and mason jar lid label! Materials Mason jar  (I used  half pint Ball jars ) Wide Gumball's 1st School Day School Buses  Fabric Pinking Sheers Ribbon or twine Candy Examples: red and yellow m&m's, 1/2 in gumballs and I used  Jolly Ranchers  and  Twizzlers Rainbow Twists . Optional: Rectangle hole punch A little tip for the Jolly Rancher jar: I used a cut piece of paper towel roll to create the inside structure, it makes it much easier to create a design. I used pinking sheers to trim out the cardboard edges and then stuffed it full of more Jolly Ranchers.  Click for PDF. Stop sign card and mason jar top are for personal use only, do not redistribute.

It was an XL, it looks more like a large now. The sleeves are perfect for making 18" doll clothes (American Girl).  So, here's what you've been waiting for... the Sleeve Sweater Dress tutorial... Materials and Tools: A sweater: Mens large or bigger or a Woman's equivelant size A doll for fitting (This is designed for an 18" American doll) Scissors Pinking Shears (optional) Snap Sharpie Marker Thread Sewing Machine Ruler Pins Optional Materials (see Accessorize ) Cutting: First measure and cut about 12" up from the bottom of the sleeve (this will be the body of the dress). Next measure about 6" up from the remaining sleeve and cut again (the arms of the dress). None of these measurements are real exact for 2 reasons, 1) you're deali
