Okay readers…I admit, I have an addiction. The addiction is doll patterns. I do pretty good for awhile and then I buy them. It’s a love I’ve always had from a child on up. The first thing I ever really sewed was doll clothes. Honestly, they are one of my favorite things to make. It doesn’t matter if it’s Barbie clothes or doll clothes…I love making them all.
One year for Christmas I made our daughter Kayla a BIG box of doll clothes that fit her doll. She played with them lots and lots. Another year I made a huge box of barbie doll clothes for the oldest two girls. It had 3 or 4 different wedding dresses along with about three matching brides maid dresses. There were lots and lots of other clothes in there too-gowns, costumes, everything I could think of to make. I sewed every night for weeks making all the outfits. I had LOTS of fun.
As a kid I loved dolls and Barbies and played all the time. I actually come from a line of doll clothes makers. My mom was awesome at it. My sister is too!
Last weekend we were in Waterloo and I stopped in at JoAnn’s. Hubby was at Menards so I had time to kill. That left me at the pattern table. Simplicity had a new book out that I hadn’t seen before. It was just of doll clothes patterns. WOW, I was in awe and really wanted some of the patterns.
I am an American Girl fan. I love the books and read all of them to our youngest. Each of the girls have a doll-or two. It was the big splurge they had for Christmas.
Being I love all things historical and love to make doll clothes you can see that I’d love these patterns.
Doing childcare with all the kiddos here they are all HUGE frozen fans so I’d love to get this pattern too.
But you all know me…I’m the cheapskate. I’ll never pay the big price for any of these patterns.
I don’t need these patterns today or tomorrow…and in all reality, I don’t NEED them at all…I just want them. Who knows if I’ll even ever have a grand daughter who likes dolls?!?! But oh, I would like to own these patterns.
So my question to you blog readers is this…Could someone please let me know when patterns go on sale and are only a $1? I want to add these and a couple others to my collection. Aren’t they just adorable?? Does anyone know if there is some schedule or organization to their sales? I want to be there the first day before they sell out!
