Kit in the herb garden

Several pairs of flannel pajamas, neatly folded and set aside, were brought to my attention this past weekend. The time had come to get started on something that had nestled back in my brain a couple of months ago awaiting the proper time of delivery. An outfit for Charlotte's American Girl dolls constructed from the plaid flannel of Daddy's pjs was the result. Quilt squares cut from the flannel fabric have also begun with hopes of a completed lap quilt in the future.




The photography shoot took place in the herb garden with Kit standing in my newest woven basket.


The green and blue color scheme was quite successful.

What a beautiful little dress! Your basket too, take my breath away. That's something I've never learned to do, nor have the fainted clue how to get started.

Blessings!

Meaning that ou wove the basket or that it is the newest one in your collection?

Kit looks wonderful in 'grandpas' pajamas! My 14 year old has Kit and loves her to death!!

Blessings, Debbie

I love that outfit, it reminds me of something from Little Women. Makes me think of happy memories of my sisters and playing with our american girl dolls outside.

Very sweet! I'm about to get started on some more doll clothes myself, and your accomplishment gives me a little boost.

Friday, the 13th, and at last the weather has turned cooler. I breathe deeply as I turn off the air-conditioner and slide open a few windows...
