Handmade Baby Doll Burp Cloths & Wash Cloths

Pin It!
I have so much fun making smaller items. My youngest granddaughter told me that she needed some burp cloths for her baby dolls, so of course I made her some.

*Burp cloths are 4”x9” and flannel on both sides
*Wash Cloths are 3 3/4” square, one side is flannel and the other side is terry cloth. 

I zigzaged all around on both of them. 

Baby Doll Diaper Bag and Diapers

Pin It!
The little girl I chose off the giving tree this year wanted baby doll clothes. I used to sew doll clothes, but haven’t in years. I chose to make her a few accessories instead. Besides the diaper bag and diapers, I also made her some burp cloths, wash cloths (previous post) and diaper wipes. These were a lot of fun to make.

Sleeping Bag Set for American Girl Doll

Pin It!
I finally made a sleeping bag set for my oldest granddaughter's American Girl Doll. These are really fun and easy to make. I found the pattern on Pinterest for the sleeping bag, but made my own pattern for the pillow/pillow case and drawstring bag.

Here is the link to my previous posts with the links and dimensions.

Instantly Organized

Pin It!
I had been looking for something fun to do to be able to make extra mortgage payments.  I'd looked at several companies and finally decided on Clever Container.  They are a newer company and had great reviews.  Besides, I'm a little OCD when it comes to clutter, so this was a perfect fit for me.  I'm looking forward to helping many to Instantly Organize their lives by removing the clutter from their homes, offices, vehicles and garages.  I received my kit yesterday and am excited to get started.

Crocheted Baby Hats

Pin It!
We were going on vacation and I was looking for a new craft project, so I asked my daughter if the hospital she works at accepts donations of handmade baby hats. Luckily, they do, so I got busy. I tried a couple of different patterns until I found one I liked. They only take about 25-30 minutes to complete. These are all from the same patternexcept for the grey one with the turned up bottom.  I found all of the patterns on Pinterest, including the patterns for the flowers and bow.

Large flower         Small Flower       Bow

The hats with the flowers, I did the edging by ch3, sc in same stitch, repeat all the way around. 
As I continue to make more hats, I'll add pictures to this post.
