My New "Little" Girl

When I found this Vintage valentine on Pinterest, I knew I just had to do a post about the newest member of my family.
Isn't this just
Sew Sweet

 Remember Rosie. I found her a couple of years ago at Home Goods.
She has been dressed in dresses, bibs, aprons, skirts and even had bags thown across her shoulder for pictures.
I don't know what I would do without her. She also helps make my little space look more like a Sew Studio.
 Well, before Christmas, I was looking for some gifts for the American Girl dolls that live in the house in my front yard and I came across this little beauty.
She wears clothes that fit an 18" doll...AKA "American Girl Doll.
She is the perfect little sister for Rosie and her name is


Four of my girls have American Girl dolls and I have made several outfits for them.
Two of them...Lexi and Camy celebrate their birtdays on Saturday, so last week I made robes and jammies
for their dolls.
It was so much fun dressing Rosebud and taking pictures.
This one is for Lexi who got a new white robe for Christmas and loves the color blue.

Of course it is a little hard to get a good picture of jammie pants on a one legged girl,
but we persevered.
Here's Camy's and she is  still in the purple phase.
The Minkee for both the robes are scraps from pillowcases and the fabric for the jammies was out of my stash too.
I don't have a lot of purples, so had to get a little creative with these.
Then I  went back to Amazon where I found Rosebud and found the cutest slippers to match each robe.
If you are looking for a less expensive line of clothing and accessories for an American Girl doll, I have found
Sofia's has the cutest things. Not only are they less expensive, but very well made.

I may just have to make Rosebud an outfit to wear all the time. Kinda like having my very own little girl to dress. Maybe she will get a whole wardrobe.

I think I have messed up my font and the size, but bear with me. I'll get it back...maybe.

Beware...Valentines Day brings out something in me...remember last year?  I feel some posts
in Red and Pink coming up.

Also, I'll be starting my Pinterest Try Tuesday again, only I am going to try it on Thrusday instead.
Someone I know has a Tutorial Tuesday and I'm hoping to see more posts there...hint hint, Suzanne
No pressure, I'm just sayin'.

So since I found the Valentine at the top of the post on Pinterest, I guess this is my first Pinterest Try Thursday.
If you try something you find on Pinterest and post about it, come back here and tell me and I will put a link to your "try".

God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
