Okay okay, I know I said I was gonna keep this blog up to date. But for some reason, I have been able too. And I know I've said it before, but I really am gonna try and keep up with it lol.

So anyway, On with the crafts! Most of them--- Okay all of them are American Girl related. Because thats what I've been working lately lol.

This little cute outfit I made for Molly came from several different sets of patterns. Some of them are from Molly's Patterns from the American girl company. The hat I actually made from a website idea. The jacket, tshirt and jeans are from Liberty Jane. I knitted the scarf without using a pattern at all and the shoes are Molly's Saddle Shoes from American. I decided to keep her locket and glasses on because they're so cute. 

And using Josefina's holiday pattern I decided to try and make Caroline's Travel Dress. I'm really happy with how this turned out. I even made the boots using another Liberty Jane pattern. This is what the original looks like from the website. So I think I got it pretty close. 

Oh and as promised another photo of Caroline. Here she is dressed in her holiday gown. The holiday outfit is totally awesome. Its very detailed even the shoes are adorable. The only issues I have it with it, is the gloves are really hard to get on as are the shoes. But all in all, I'm happy I got it. I still think it needs a necklace though. 

And finally, I was messing around with Rebecca's play scenes book and thought hey! I can pratice setting up a scene with Mini Rebecca! It was so much fun! I might do another one soon. The play scenes are very detailed and the paper play things are so much fun!

I need to work on my photography lol. I think, you can see the flash in the background. Oh well. It still turned out neat. 

And last but not least, as promised a craft suggest from American Girl: A Crafty Girl's Planner. 

Decorate a cupcake to make a funny face.
