Doll Dress

Here is Molly (with a bad haircut) in a crocheted dress I made for her. It just needs one more button on the back. The t-shirt is a blue knit with daisy print on it.
Molly is only borrowing the outfit. It is a gift for Angelina's doll, Amanda. Amanda is also getting a crocheted blanket and pillow (lavender) and possibly a nightgown and jacket. I'm not sure I'll have time to finish the latter two, but I'll try.
Last night, I picked up a dowel at Michael's. I'll have Mike drill a hole in it, and cut it shorter, then I'll put some yarn or rat-tail in it, tie on a magnet, and it will become a fishing pole for the little fishing set I made for my nephew. The fish are done. I'll post a picture of the finished gift soon!

The best part of these? Most of my materials were things I already had on hand!

Sooo Cute! Angelina should LOVE this. What fun for little girls to get new clothes for their doll!

I hope you make Molly a dress of her own...she may get upset when she has to hand that over to Amanda!

That is a wonderful gift. I may ask you for the pattern :0)

Thank you for your comment o my CVS shopping post. I'm glad that you found those battery coupons on the endcap.
