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.
