I have done a little sewing for the grandkids. First up are pillowcases for my two oldest grandsons. I found this great Monopoly fabric at Miller's Dry Goods and the rest is history. These two guys love to play games...Monopoly, Scrabble, Wii...and they seemed to like these pillowcases a lot. They are more age appropriate than the superhero pillowcases I made the boys a while ago.
I also found a printed fabric panel to make an outfit for my oldest granddaughter's American Girl doll. It is from a collection of panels called "Let's Play" by Firetrail Designs for Andover Fabrics. I have finished the jacket and the dress but there is still a coordinating lined purse to make. Here is what the outfit looks like. I wasn't able to fit the dress on the doll as I made it, so I sure hope it really does fit.
Here are the pieces of the panel for the purse...to give you an idea of how the pattern is printed on the fabric.
There are instructions printed right on the panel, as well as more construction info at this website.
