Belle Doll Dress

Although I haven’t made a ton of doll clothes, I couldn’t resist joining this the Oh Sew Kat doll clothes blog tour.  You see, the Sugar and Spice Dress is the perfect dress for making Character/Princess inspired doll clothes.  And I have a serious soft spot Beauty and the Beast.  So I had to make a Belle doll dress for my doll. Technically this is my daughter’s doll because I gave it to her last year.  But it has been hard to let go of my doll.  And no matter how many times my daughter changes her name, I’ll...

Scripture Tote

At the same time I made my daughter’s scriptures cover, I made a little bag for her to carry things to church.  A scripture tote.  I couldn’t help it-the scripture cover didn’t really have any place to keep paper or a pen and bags are just fun!  I saw a bag with this general shape and drew out my own pattern for it. I love the bag’s simple, clean lines.  And the unique shape.  The handles are part of the sides instead of separate straps sewn onto the side.  I wanted the bag to be cute, but not overly...

Personalized Scripture Cover

When my son decided to get baptized, my husband and I bought him his own set of scriptures.  I made him a cover for his scriptures following a tutorial from Delia Creates.  So when my daughter turned 8 I decided to not only made her a special dress, but make a special personalized scriptures cover for her scriptures too.  One of the things I love about these covers is the handles.  My kids carry their scriptures to church but can easily open them up to read when they want.  Although my daughter is young and would probably love something...
