A little gift-y sewing

This week I've gotten very little quilting done. Instead, I've been sewing doll clothes. My friend's 2 youngest girls are getting American Girl dolls for Christmas, so she got a McCall's pattern for 18" doll clothes and well, I've been "using up a few scraps" and leaving them in her mailbox.
Then, last night I was speaking with my niece and asked if her girls (age 7, 4, and 2) had dolls that she wanted clothes for. She jumped at the chance. Her girls are in the stuffed "animal-doll" stage, so I had her give me some measurements to work on. Luckily, one of the dolls is a "Build a Bear" and my son has one of them, so it was pressed into model mode.
First up - pyjamas. The oldest child's doll has been well loved, and her stuffing has headed south, so pants will be a problem. She gets a nightgown.


The next one is still loved alot, but has held her stuffing in place, so she'll get pyjamas.

The third one is going to have to wait until tomorrow, because I got into my stash of "loud" fabric. Now this cat's going to Hawaii.

Uh oh, she's gotten into the margaritas! This saga may have another chapter!
