So a few years ago Anastasia had been gifted with an American Girl Bitty Baby doll that only recently becamse a well-loved member of our family. For the past few months now, Isabel has been begging me for a Bitty Baby too which I told her she might get for her birthday in October. Well, Isabel's wishing must have been heard by some little flea market fairies because on Saturday wee found a little blonde Bitty Baby for $3. $3 DOLLARS!!! I have never seen my little red head more happy!!! In fact this baby hasn't left her side for the past 2 days! The only issues were that there was a little, light green permanent marker line on the dolls nose and she had no clothes. From 2 feet away you wouldn't notice the marker but it was there. Isabel didn't mind but thanks to a Magic Eraser and a lot of scrubbing by Isabel, this doll is as good as new! And I made her some clothes:
Anastasia begged me to make matching dresses for their dolls like the ones I had made them! Thankfully, I had just enough fabric to pull something together. I didn't use a pattern... so they are a little funky-fitted, but that is okay! Little girls don't mind imperfections.
Anastasis also wanted me to take a picture of her and her doll. So there ya go.
And I made little matching cloth diapers and wipes and a wipe case from the tutorial here. These were sooooo easy and quick and a perfect way to use up larger fabric scraps!
AND as if that wasn't enough I finished up my evening with a pair of pajama pants for myself from a vintage sheet. As you can see, I had a lot of help! In the end I have an amazingly comfortable, cute pair of pajama pants that cost me less than $1. I still have quite a bit of sheet left... so I see some matching nightwear for kiddies coming soon! Oh Binge sewing is the best!!! Only I should be binge-packing for our roadtrip!! YIKES!
