Wednesday Wee Ones

Today was a trip to the salon to try some new hairdos.
 We need a cape to protect our lovely clothes while we are at the salon.  I'm Poppy Sunshine - I like simple hairdos most of the time
This is the focus fabric for this week - we each got a cape from the blue/white star fabric.  We think we will look great when we are done choosing hairstyles.  I'm Sally Jo - my hair is fine and straight - great for a braid or two
I'm Abigail Clarissa - with very curly hair - you may call me Abby
We liked the capes so much we convinced our seamstress to make more capes - so we have choices.  My hair is such a mess today
 Much better  - my curls get so fluffy sometimes
 I really like this purple cape
 The cow print cape reverses to purple -  I like my hair up - what do you think?
 Pretty stones on this cape.  I like my hair pulled to one side - keeps it under control - I like this hair style.
The stones are the reverse side of my stars cape
I like braids - and this cape that is  pink and gold on one side and flowers on the other.  I think it suits my hair.  
 The purple cape with cow print lining
Three capes - showing their reverse sides - lots of choices
 I think the braid looks smashing pulled across the top of my bangs 

It has been a fun day at the salon - we all tried out different hairdos and we all think we all look great.  New hair styles are such fun!

Maybe next time you can come along and try on the capes and look at new hairdos.  Thanks for stopping in this week.

The pattern is a free downloadable one - HERE.  I shortened it about 2 inches and found that to be just the right size.

And don't forget to stop over and see what Diane   and Sheila are making with the blue/white fabric this week.  Toodles!

Hi JoAnn! Oh, these little capes are just darling. Love all of the fabrics you've used. Thank you so much for linking to my post too! You have some lovely little dollies too. I'll be looking forward to next week.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

My dolls are looking over my shoulder and starting to complain that I never make them those fancy things such as capes ... or even give them a beauty treatment.

The capes are darling! Perfect for a day at the spa for hair styling. Braids always look smashing on the wee ones. Soon I will be able to join in on the fun, I have two dolls coming from an Ebay purchase this week. I did see a Madame Alexander doll at the VOA yesterday. The poor dear thing must of had a bad run in with her hairdresser, her hair had been clipped all the way to the skin at the back of her head.
