I think Christmas smells like Gingerbread cookies, and dolls. I wonder if the doll manufactures put a special scent in the plastic that make them irresistible.

My grand daughter got a "twirrly skirt" and so the dolly had to have one too!

The twirrly skirt had to have a blouse.
And the dolly had to have some jeans and shirt....
And she had to have a new dress and bloomers. Boy did making doll clothes take me back to the years when my daughters had dolls. I use to sew for hire for a woman who had 4 daughters and they each got a new one for Christmas. I sewed doll clothes for Christmas for years, because each year each new doll had to have a complete wardrobe. I was a lot younger in those days, I am glad I only have one doll to sew for!

Those little dolly clothes are adorable! I can't believe that you actually make them. And they look as nice as regular girl clothes! I'm curious. Do you use a pattern or just make it up as you go?

Oh... so cute! You want to make Paige some... jk! I am just glad she hasn't thought of extra clothes for her dolls just yet. Just clothing for herself. :) Have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

What sweet clothes you have made! I loved making dolls clothes for my daughter - even the Barbie doll clothes were fun to make.

Have a wonderful Christmas!

Wow! You've outdone yourself. You HAVE to take a picture of her face when she opens these gifts.

All so cute! Isn't it fun to take you back?

Baby dolls do have "that" smell to them. Do you think they could make it in a car fragrance????
