Yes, I’m really making doll blankets

Well, my little darling Madison has discovered Amercian Girl dolls.  Which is wonderful- they were a huge part of my own childhood.  However, American Girl doll stuff is crazy expensive!  We love craft projects, so we decided we were going to start making some projects geared toward American Girls.  First off, her dolls (Kirsten and Samantha) have been “freezing cold” this spring.  So I took a trip to Hobby Lobby to find some material that would be worthy.  And for $3, I found some gorgeous pink fuzzy fabric that I knew would be more than enough to make a comforter set.  I had already had a bag of fiberfill that has been sitting in the closet forever, so we were pretty much ready to go.  It was a super easy project and ended up costing about $4 instead of the $30+ bed sets listed on the American Girl site.  Plus there was the added bonus of getting to do a project with the kids.  Riley and Madison learned how a sewing machine worked and really enjoyed helping the project come together.

And I’d say she was pretty happy with the result.
