I spent a good part of the afternoon attempting to create new clothes for my daughter’s Barbie and Princess dolls. I finally came upon this great doll clothing tutorial site (scroll down for Barbie dresses). I decided to use one of the fabrics I designed for Spoonflower. The pattern was super easy to follow although making ‘darts’ is not my strong point. I also sewed a dog vest for Butch who is visiting from pre-school, and my daughter made him a matching pillow. It was a fun weekend of re-learning how to sew and showing my daughter how rewarding it is to make something yourself! If you like the fabric, ‘Some Days are Diamonds’, you can buy it on Spoonflower in two different colorways…I’d love to see what you make!
