Guess What I'll Be Sewing!
I'm actually looking forward to sewing
American Girl clothes. Jada has about 1,826 Build-a-Bears (well, it seems like 1,826.) In the interest of full disclosure, I'm pretty sure I bought the first bear (my sister still blames me) and I haven't made one outfit for any of them. I would have had to draft a pattern for a bear! I'm not that good yet. But there are already so many patterns available for American Girls. I bought a pattern as soon as I learned Jada was going to American Girl Place! Gran-Gran is an extremely talented seamstress, so I'm sure Jada's American Girl will be the best dressed doll in North Carolina.
My own daughter never really played with dolls. She had a couple of Barbies and a Cabbage Patch Kid but she was more into sports and science when she was doll-playing age. I made Barbie clothes one Christmas when she was about three. I had mixed feelings about the project because I object to Barbie on certain levels. And, it's not easy sewing clothes for a doll with a three inch waist. But now I finally have the chance to sew real doll clothes! I'm so excited!
