Parisian Fashion for GOTY 2015 Grace Thomas American Girl Doll and other Dolls

 Paris - French clothing is such an inspiration and I love sewing for American Girl Dolls.  Since Grace Thomas Girl of the Year 2015 made her debut a few days ago, I have been sewing and selling "Parisian" style clothing and bedding.   I have ordered Grace Thomas and awaiting patiently for her arrival.  The nearest AG store is 3 hours away.   If you haven't seen Grace Thomas be sure to check her out.

Doll Purses - Pattern Review

I purchased several patterns over the summer and am just now able to start sewing with some of them.  I purchased the Grab N Go bag from Peppermint Sticks on Pixie Faire and today I made several doll purses used the tote option.  There are several options to use with this pattern.

The pattern calls for plastic Jelly bracelets and I found a bundle (24 various colors - 3 of each color like pink, yellow, black, white, orange, purple blue, teal) sold in the jewelry department at Wal-mart for under $3:00.  This pattern I give a A+ - easy to follow. No adjustments needed.  Pattern well written with instructions and lots of photographs. 

First one I made is the Shoe Diva Closet tote.  I used pink and white hounds tooth coordinating fabric for the lining.  Also below in the photo is a pink jewelry box I got for $2:00 at a Kids consignment store this week to use as AG doll furniture and to use in photo props. 
 Shown below is the lining using the pink and white hounds tooth fabric. 
 I purchased this pink wire dress form on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $4.00 - to use for photo props and in doll house.


Next I made the Scottish Terrier tote.  I already had the black shirt and the pink/grey/black skirt made and I decided to applique the scottie dog onto the shirt to coordinate a matching outfit.
 Used black jelly bracelets for the handles on the tote

 Here is a better view of the wire dress form I purchased from Hobby Lobby. When I go shopping I am always looking for items to use for dolls - I call it "My dolls eye" view. 

Next is the Retro - Julie 1970's theme tote


Here is used coordinating polka dot fabric for the lining and used lime green jelly bracelets for the handles. 

Love this Retro print fabric.  I actually made a tunic top from this pattern and headband for my granddaughter for her Halloween costume.  I want to make some clothing for AG doll using this print too. 



Here is another Diva Shoe Closet tote - using dark purple and black animal print for the lining.




Here is another Diva Shoe Closet tote - using light purple with darker purple animal print for the lining. 


These tote bags for American Girl Doll are listed on my Etsy store for 7.99. https://www.etsy.com/shop/GiGisDollCreations
