It is not even finished yet and I am in love!

I am going to miss Hot Mess doll when I send her to Grandma's house for sewing.

Today was the day I decided to sew. I started off easy and made a little skirt, then moved to socks (on her)  and ended with some shorts. As I sent my girls off to bed I knew I wanted to attempt something with the shirt my daughter had picked out from the thrift store (.99) size 12 and asked me to make something/anything for the doll. This was I came up with and there is so much more fabric.

The really awesome part is the top is made from the SLEEVE. I still need to add a clip to the bow and sew up the hem but I honestly couldn't hold back and had to blog asap. I knew it was a hit when she came out of bed (again) and said " OMG ITS AWESOME"

Updated house pictures!

This is Emmy (JLY) sitting in their living room. We made the couch out of foam and the chest was a .99 Goodwill find.
Other side of the living room. Obviously, we need to paint the dresser that we "think" will become the entertainment center. We are not sure yet. Dog basket and kitty house 1.00 at a thrift store here in town and the dog L calls Meatball was .49 at Goodwill.
Emmy's side of the room until we get the walls put up. Bedding is being made by Grandma and where the shoes are is usually the trundle, but I have that out to cover it. Bed-10.00
Bella's (another JLY) side of the room. In this picture you can see the trundle.
kitchen/dinning room/laundry room. So far my favorite part of the house and I am SO glad we did buy that medicine cabinet. 
Dining room full shot both dolls.
Full bedroom
Full bottom. I was sad to see whomever had the house before us got paint on the hardwood. Another thing "to do" I think next week I will hit up the craft store for "wallpaper" ;)

Thanks for looking and remember, all you have to do is click the picture to see it larger!

We've been buying but not creating!

It feels like since Christmas all I have done is buy clothes to upcycle for the dolls. The girls have decided what they want for their doll rooms and bedding. So expect a few posts soon about clothing, bedding and more!
