A great way to use up your fabric scraps and fat quarters is to make new clothes for your 18” doll. This party dress and bolero jacket took no time at all to sew up， using just straight and zigzag stitches. The jacket is lined with the same fabric as the dress. Have your child or grandchild pick out fabric from your stash to create their own special look!
There are some great books available with 18” doll clothes patterns that I recommend：funny pillow cases

Being pregnant during the holidays can be good and bad.? On one hand, it’s great spending this special time with your family, overindulging in wonderful holiday treats, and dreaming about the future with your bundle of joy.? On the other hand, none of your clothes fit, you have trouble sleeping due to said bundle of joy playing kickball with your insides, and your energy simply is not what it used to be.? If you’re like I was, your holiday to do list is long, your desire is strong, but your body is TIRED.
