    I decided to try to sew Barbie doll clothes for the grands--again. Bought a new pattern--simple designs etc. Got 1 dress done and never again! I have tried in the past and have the same bad luck--guess my fingers just are not designed for doll clothes--even though I do mini, mini quilts.
    How about making doll bedding instead? Doll beds are 8 x 10. Think I can handle that instead. Off to Santa's workshop I go!

    I never like doing Barbie clothes. I think that I would prefer buying them.

    My Mom used to make clothes for my Barbie when I was a youngster. Don't know how she did it! Must have had the patience of a saint!

    I haven't made Barbie doll clothes since my daughter was "that" age. My DGD is now at the doll age and I've been making clothes like crazy for Christmas. To me, it's the next best thing to playing with dolls. The clothes are just SO CUTE!!!

    My mom too. Gowns with shawls and everything. I wish I still had them.

    One of my favorite things I had that was made for Barbie was a towel. You can make a towel! It was a piece of stretchy terrycloth with fringe cut in the ends! My Barbie was the only one with a towel! Another easy thing is a sleeping bag!

    I admire you for making the one dress. Those Barbie clothes are so small!
