Friday Night Sew-In

I've been sewing this evening.
 I have some vintage barbie doll clothing patterns that I am using to make gifts for my granddaughters and a niece for this coming Christmas.  If you have been following me you know I have crocheted a set of cloths for each of them, but I am finding that is taking longer than I thought it would so I decided I need to add some sewn sets to the gifts also.
This is what I already had sewn so far on a gown and robe set I am making.  I will show you what I get done this evening sometime tomorrow.
These are two of the three little girls I am making these Barbie cloths for.  They love their dolls.
Sewing along with everyone else over at Handmade by Heidi.

My mom made all of my Barbie clothes. My niece now plays with them when she visits my Dad and Stepmom. I have sewn some doll clothes and can't imagine sewing such tiny outfits.

You should crochet the girls a scarf and a matching scarf for their barbies. That'd go fast. I thought about doing that for my nieces and their American Girl dolls.

I used to make my Barbie dolls clothe, my favorite was when I was "in love" with Gone With The Wind and made hoop skirts out of coat hangers. I used to make all my dresses when I was young....people thought we were rich because I had a new outfit each week. Little did they know that I made the dresses for under 10 dollars, money I earned when I babysat. Knowing how to sew is an essential skill for everyone! Thanks for sharing your lovely work!
