    Beautiful! We got 2 of our granddaughters AG dolls for their Bdays this year and for Christmas we got them trunks from Joann's online. I would have made them something like yours but they have to share their are 3 of them in 1 bedroom so not only do they not have room to leave it out they need to protect their things from their baby brother. I made them several outfits, found accessories on ABC distributing and used Joann's coupons to buy more outfits at a good price. I plan on making more this year. My husband said I was having so much fun that I needed a doll too so he got me 1 for Christmas. I have decided to have a year of AG doll activities with the girls. For February we had a tea party with a couple of little firends and their dolls and I helped the kiddos make doll shoes and necklaces. We had lots of fun. We'll do a different craft each month.

    what a great idea. i bought a granddaughter two American Girl dolls. I noticed when i was visiting the other day, that doll and doll clothes were scattered all over the floor. Hmm, perhaps one of these is in order? Though i wonder if that particular child would put things away even if she had space to do so.LOL

    This is wonderful!! Just what I need for my granddaughter. Have already made some clothes and she needs somewhere to put them. I'll have to check out Staples. TFS.

    What a great idea--and much larger than the one I paid $149 for. Sure wish I'd seen this a few months ago!

    Very clever! It's funny, but it might also work for human baby clothes, if you're tight for space.

    http://www.onlyhangers.com/content/c...p?P=31&PID=298 for the hangers, and google American Doll clothes patterns for literally hundreds of patterns, some free, some not. Also eBay is a good source for shoes and boots but you can get patterns for them too!

    I love it, and so will that lucky little girl! If you really want to upgrade from the shoe boxes, someone recently posted a link to a free pattern for fabric storage boxes, and you could custom size them to fit the shelf space - just an idea. I have lost track of the link, but it's not rocket science (for a quilter, anyway) to sew a box, and you can use plastic canvas or recycled cardboard to give it body. I think the design I saw had pockets that let the plastic or cardboard be removed for machine washing.

    Wonderful! She will love it and you for making it. Hope you'll be with her when she opens her present.

Lowered the shelf and added a rod to hang up clothes (wooden shower rod holders). Put shoe boxes on bottom to hold undies and little things (not perfect just what I had on hand, need to keep looking). TA-DA!!
