Christmas Shopping

Last summer I decided that I would get a jump on Christmas by sewing some doll clothes for my niece's American Girl dolls. Unfortunately, I lost my momentum on the project and then tried to finish it just as I was starting to feel early pregnancy nauseous. So while I have a lot of clothes finished, there are still a few dresses that need hems and closures. I'm determined to finish them though.

I decided to find some doll shoes to match. Of course, once I started shopping the doll shoes and accessories, I got distracted. I bought a bunch of very cute little shoes, but none of them really match the clothes that I've made. I had to practice restraint because there are some really cute options and a lot of online stores to choose from.

It all started with these little sneakers.

And then these cupcake clogs.

And then these.

I did get a pair of saddle shoes that actually match the poodle skirts that I made.

When I was really moving forward on the doll clothes, I bought the fabric and supplies to make a few more outfits. I'm not optimistic that I'll get anything else done before Christmas. I'll try to remember to take pictures of all of the final ensembles.
