Winter Ensemble for a Vintage Doll - De Stash Challenge


Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C'mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Everyone is allowed a $10 allowance for necessities to complete their project (i.e. paint brushes, glue, etc), but the bulk of it must be created from their own stash of goodies.

My project begins with a wonderful sleepy eyed vintage doll from the late 1960's.  It was a gift from my Fabulous Aunt.  Here she is playing with our youngest granddaughters.


 💕  We are all little girls at heart!  💕  


Butterick B5624 is in my stash along with gobs of fabric and plenty of thread, so that's where we begin!


I got busy sewing each item from the pattern.  (Click HERE to see where the first hat landed)  Next were the accessories in red fleece including little shoes!


I still have a couple of crocheted collars from the 80's and one was added for this Winter Ensemble!  They are just too pretty to toss!  I love her cape, but have sewn a different hat since these photos were taken.  

  Here is the Free Pattern for Shoes I used.  All the supplies for this project were already on hand.

Do you like playing with dolls?

  1. How sweet. I use to love sewing for my dolls. And as I got older I really didn't want to give up playing with dolls but you know how life gets in the way.
