My Doll and I.....We Match So Well!!

Happy Crafty Tuesday! =) 

I'm almost finished making the most ♥adorable♥ matching pj's for a ♥sweet♥ little girl and her American Girl doll.  Almost finished, because I thought I had the fasteners I needed for the back closure......but they are nowhere to be found and I can't imagine what I did with them.  Maybe it wasn't me that misplaced them......perhaps it was that person known as "Not Me" ~ the same one who leaves his/her books scattered all over my sewing desk, the same one who leaves cups all over the house, the same one who leaves the wet towels on the floor.  ; )

Anyway......I'll go ahead and post pics ~ because it's too cute not to ~ and, I have about 4 or 5 different projects started and not yet completed and this is the only one blog worthy at the moment. =)


I made them matching, but not identical......because every girl has to have her own style (and I thought the girl's pjs looked cuter with the three hearts)! ; )

I can't get the next two pics to post right side up....and don't know why. They're right side up on my computer, but turn sideways when I post on here. ?????
 Some days are just exhausting and it's easier to face the world while lying down......I completely understand that, so I'll give up leave them alone and let them rest.





Now I'm off to WalMart (ew!!).  I don't even like WalMart.  It annoys me.....but I find sometimes it's just a necessary evil.  Where else can I go and get a list full of very random items all in one place when I'm in a hurry and don't have time to run around town all afternoon?  Things like dog food, rabbit food, cat litter, socks, milk, cereal, paint, paint brushes, mineral spirits, tape, binder, and printer paper.  Oh, and thread.....and  I hope they have the hook-and eye-fasteners I need to finish these pjs.

Random.  I think it describes me well these days.  Or my thoughts, anyway!!

I'm going to add chocolate to my list.  They have that at WalMart, too.  I've got some late nights coming my way and may need something to get me through.  Chocolate.  It helps!!

Great outfit. I remember the American Girl dolls from when I was growing up, and they definitely bring back memories.

Oh...So, so cute. I have a granddaughter who loves pjs. What pattern did you use? I notice you are a Kids Can Sew instructor. What's the best age to begin a child?
