2018 Finish-A-Long, Another Goal Finished


I got another one of my goals finished for this 4th Quarter of the Finish-A-Long.  I stated this quarter's goals here.  My third goal was to make some clothes for granddaughter Klara's BD which is on Monday.  So I figured I had better set aside quilting for a couple of days, and get busy.

I'm giving Klara this doll for her BD.  She has I don't know how many of these Baby Alive dolls.  I made some clothes for some the others,   What I am doing is deconstructing some of Klara's outgrown leggings and tees and making the clothes.   There are plenty of free patterns for 18 inch dolls, but not many for this size.  Most people want to charge $4 to $5 for patterns for doll clothes.  A lot of postings on Pinterest say they are free, but they link to people charging for the patterns. I finally broke down and bought a couple.  I wasted a whole day on research.  I think I am going to get her an 18 inch doll for Christmas and make it easy on myself.  I did make one pair of leggings by myself.  It was making the T-shirt I wanted some guidance with. I got a dress pattern too, but didn't make that this time.





This one was from some of Klara's old leggings.  There is also a T-shirt underneath, and a hood on the jacket. The leggings I figured out myself.  The free pattern for the jacket said it was for this doll but she has a big head and it doesn't really fit. 




These were also from another pair of Klara's favorite leggings.  They had mermaids on them.  




This was actually from some fabric leftover from something I made for granddaughter 
#1 about 15 years ago. It was a silky pink with stars on it, and a fleece type fabric underneath.  I think I made Kyleigh some nightwear.  I probably have a yard and a half left.  I might make Klara's dolls some blankets and use it up.  Can't really see it, but I had some pink cotton knit that was also intended for Kyleigh, but I never did anything with it.  Might make Klara a dress.  

I will probably make some more clothes for these dolls for Christmas. I have been thinking about a way to make a dress out of one of Klara's cotton knit dresses.,  

I'm really anxious to get back to my One Monthly Goal, to get the Great Pumpkin Quilt to flimsy stage.  I just need to assemble it.  

I'll be linking this up the first of January with Marci Girl Designs, one of the co-hosts of 2018 Finish-A-Long.

Now to clean up the mess I made assembling 3 doll outfits.  

Thanks for stopping by!
