    Bunny Slippers....New Glasses....Lace Up Boots

    Last week I posted pics of PJ's & Robe and and outfit I had made for the American Girl/Next Generation dolls and today I got in the Bunny Slippers to go with the PJ's & Robe and the Glasses and Black lace up Boots so I wanted you to see what they looked like. The black boots are little hard to see.

    Aren't the Bunny Slippers the cutest? Love them....it is going to be hard for me to let them go so I will have to order some for my doll.

    I did order these from Newark Dressmaker supply or Homesew.

    Thanks for looking.

    Well I am almost 62.....so I say GO for it!!

    I actually bought the Next Generation doll at Target last month for 16.99 so I would have a doll to try clothes on as I made them for the granddaughter's dolls she lives out of town and I can't try them on her dolls. The clothes have turned out cute and now the shoes and glasses they may never get to the granddaughter. HA!!

    My husband caught me taking pictures of the doll shoes this afternoon and says "are you having fun playing with your doll"? Of course I said Yes.

    Those bunny slippers are adorable. And I say if you want to play with your doll, play with her.

    Hey, I'm 56 & I'm still all about dolls! I love my new Terri Lee! And I want an American Girl doll (Molly -- it'sall about the braids & the glasses!) more than life itself. Are the Target versions nice? I'd like to have one just to make cute clothes for (Terri lee wears a different size).

    Hi Rebecca,

    My doll in the pictures is the Next Generation from Target, I have nothing to compare her to as I have not held the American Girls Dolls just seen them in pictures. Target has several NG that are different prices, I got mine on sale for 16.99 regular 22.99 and they had some for 30.00 and 40.00, they had different hair colors and faces. Mine is not as dark as the picture shows my camera wasn't working to good (or it was probably me). I just needed a doll to make some clothes for, besides I can't afford the AG dolls.

    I love sewing for AG dolls! I made matching Victorian gowns for 3 GD's and their AG dolls. I told them to never get rid of either as they were a lot of trouble to make, but beautiful when finished.

    I made a whole wardrobe for the AG doll Santa brought my GD in WA. Borrowed a doll from a girl at church who was 'outgrowing' hers for a model. It was so much fun!! I still have my Ideal doll from the early '50s. Her name was Melissa, and coincidentally the same as my first daughter, born in 1967. LOL
    If you think AG's are pricey, check out the dolls made by my next door neighbor. http://bonniesbundlesdolls.com/ But they are gorgeous, and bought just as often by/for "mature women" as for the kiddoes. Anybody can make a "rag doll," but these are extraordinary. As with anything, value is relative to quality and to how badly you want it. Bonnie's Bundles are worth every penny, and so are the American Girl Dolls!

    very cute . What a lucky girl to have a grandma that does this. The dolls are bueatiful in their clothes you make. I still have cabbage patch dolls and patterns and clothes I made for them. I don't think anyone outgrows dolls so sure go for it. Alot of adults collect dolls. The collections I see causes me to drool, LOL.

    i have 8 or 9 of the dolls, including a boy. i found beautiful dolls at toys r us for around $25. they are called journey dolls. beautifully made, pretty faces. my gd is 10 months, and my daughter is 25, neither one is interested in them. the little 4 yr old next door always asks me to bring one out. i love making the clothes and collecting the activity sets. they can go camping in their own tent, have a cook out, ride horseback ( 2 horses), etc. i get a little carried away, but i love it! i hope my gd feels the same way someday.
