Wee Ones Wednesday - new clothes for winter

Abigail Clarissa Wellington-Jones and Poppy Sunshine have new winter clothes.  I sewed the raincoat and crocheted the poncho
 Abigail has a poncho in case it snows, and snow boots, while Poppy has a slicker, rain hat and rain boots - for the rainy weather we are having right now
 Diane - at Lavender Dreams, has a Wee Ones Wednesday post also - so stop over and visit her blog - it is a lot of fun.  Her dolls are having a slumber party this week.



Boots to keep us dry and warm

Dolls are Madame Alexander and are available at amazon.com

Don't have dolls, but I do have quite a lively and opinionated bunch of teddy bears. Not to mention Josephine!
Do you sew "big people clothes," too? My mother was a stellar seamstress, and she learned as a child by making doll clothes.

JoAnn, you never "brag" about your sewing skill! The first time I visited your quilt gallery - all quietly tucked away on the side bar! - I was blown away by the beauty and craftsmanship of your Lone Star pieces! And now I see that you also crochet with the same excellence! The little poncho is precious. And the raincoat is too! Fun winter projects for you and "the girls!"

I was so glad to read that you finally got your Bunny doll back when you were a child. You have been making doll clothes for a very long time and have become very proficient at it. When we moved we had to downsize. I didn't want to just take my dolls to Goodwill and possibly have them destroyed. I found a used doll store that refurbished and resold old dolls. I gave them almost all of my dolls, only keeping the one my mother had as a child with a china head. - Margy

So cute -- I like the little touch of plaid on the raincoat especially!

The doll clothes turned out wonderful. They are ready for any bad weather.

When I was growing up, my dolls were my best friends. I still have those friends.They were small and had only one set of clothes and I learned to sew at age 4 so my dills would be ready for whatever adventure we went on. Of course, since they were so small, I could use the very small scraps that others found useless. Now my granddaughter is dressing those dolls in their finery..
