31 Days to a Stress Free Holiday Season - Day 18

Another easy gift to make for little girls are dolls and doll clothes! I didn't make this doll but there are plenty of easy patterns online to make a simple doll. This doll came decked out in our college's colors, complete with pom poms!! I simply cut the pom poms off and now they are hair bows and I cut the outfit down the back, hemmed and added velcro!

This simple gown was made with leftover scraps from a pillow case gown I made my daughter and some ribbon. And the little dress, I made by making a simple pattern out of paper and fitting it to the dolls body and then hemming it. Again this little dress matches one I had made for Paige!! 

I bought this doll when Paige was a newborn for $4 and the cost of clothes was $0 due to using scraps!!!

Do you have any DIY crafts on your plate??? 
Can you use up some scraps to complete your project??
