Three of my nieces got American Girl dolls for Christmas.
Bet you can't guess what I'll be gearing their birthday gifts towards this year!
The middle girl has a birthday this Friday so I made her up a jean skirt, little duct tape shoes, and a mini duct tape purse with doll sized money inside!
The skirt is recycled from a pair of my husband's old jeans.
I did the rag edge on it - simple and fast!
I used the pattern from You Can Make This -- the wrap skirt pattern.
I changed it up by not making it reversible and using a button instead of Velcro for the closure.
DUCT TAPE SHOES
You can find a free tutorial for the duct tape shoes over at Doll Diaries.
You can see in this pic that they fit perfectly!
And here you can see the cork bottom I put on them.
DUCT TAPE PURSE
Lastly, I made a little duck tape purse - lined w/pink gingham fabric.
I didn't follow any tutorial for this one -- just sort of made it up as I went along.
Since I'll be making more of these for the other girls (and my own daughter!) - I'll try to remember to make a tutorial up next time.
Inside I placed some mini money for her doll to spend.
Here's two free printables featuring mini money for your dolls.
I copied these images from Bank Note World - and resized them to fit the dolls.
If you're interested in money from another country or even old American money check out the Bank Note World site -- lots of money images there.
Here's the backs
Here's another purse I made for my daughter's doll - Felicity
