Christmas Craft Fair is Coming

My friend Julee and I do a craft fair each December - we work on items all year.  This year I decided to make accessories for American Girl Dolls. We both have a doll (well, I have 2) and so it is fun to make things for the dolls to wear.

 Flip Flops and spring baskets - lots of colors to choose from.

 Squiggly scarves - one for dolly one for "mommy" of dolly
 I've already sold quite a few of these and have orders for more - good thing I liked making them and made a box full, in lots of fun colors.
 Pumpkin hats and matching trick-or-treat baskets
 I love the stem on the pumpkin hat.
 Lots of bracelets for dolly and mommy - made with the Rainbow Loom - that thing is addicting - I spent a lot of time on the deck this summer making bracelets - what fun!!!
 Flower design bracelet
Three sizes - from left to right - "grandma of doll", "mommy of doll" and dolly.
 Besides the pumpkin hats I made a few more crocheted hats for sporty occasions.  Right now I'm working on hats on the nifty knitter loom - one is a red and white candy cane striped hat - I'll show that to you later, when the hats are done.
The dolls are waiting to be dressed in their winter outfits so they can show off the new items at the craft fair.

Do you do craft fairs?  What do you make?

Wow --everything you made for the dolls and their Mommies are beautiful and adorable! When my granddaughter is a little older I know I'll be looking for fun accessories like these for her dolls.

Aren't you clever to make mommy and dolly matching scarves and bracelets. I like the basket and flip flops, and the purple hat in the last photo.
Good luck with your craft sale. I make handmade cards but don't sell them.
Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday JoAnn.

Oh how I love dolls and you've made such cute accessories for them. I wonder who that last doll is...I'll go look and see if I can figure it out. I don't have one of these dolls! Hugs, Diane

What a lot of beautiful items you've created. Little girls (and their mommies) will be thrilled to have their dolls so well accessorized. I craft - mostly sewing - table linens and clothing for myself and the girls I love.

You HAVE been busy! I hope the fair is successful for you.
I make cards...not for sale. Just to send to special people.

Ages ago I made things for our local Humane Society to sell at Christmas bazaars at the mall. That was fun for me and profitable for them!
I love your creativity and excellent craftsmanship. You will probably sell out of these cute items. I am glad that AG dolls are popular and that they involve girls in such wholesome play. When they first came out I bought one "Molly" and two "Kristen" dolls for my daughters. I enjoyed the lessons in history that accompanied them. Wonderful toy to encourage! Wish there was some version that boys would relate to!

You are very clever and creative...these will sell like hotcakes as they say!!

The dolls are beautiful and you make beautiful things for them. I love dolls. I don't have American Girl dolls, but I do have two early 1900 bisque German dolls that were my mother's and her sisters, so I have started sewing form them. I don't do craft shows, but my mother in law did, so I know how much it takes to get enough made. You do beautiful work.
