One of my favorite things to do

One of my favorite things to do is to play dress up with my dolls.  How fun it is to travel the world, save animals and still have time to be with friends, all in an afternoon.  I love using my imagination and creating new things.  So, when I realized I didn’t have every outfit I needed for my dolls for our adventure, I came up with the idea of making them.  How hard could it be? All I needed to do was ask for help.

So, after asking my mom for help and doing research together on the web, BTW I LOVE YouTube, I had the basic ideas of sewing mastered and was ready to begin!  My first step was hitting the drawing table to sketch out dress ideas.

Next, we went to the fabric store.  OMG!!! I LOVE this store!!! There were so many colors and fabric textures to pick from I didn’t know where to begin.  But hands down, the best section in the store was the area that had all the trims and sequence.  Just wow!!!

After I picked all my fabric and trim, I was ready to begin the hard part.  It was time to start measuring and sewing.  It took a whole bunch of tries and a lot of patiences, but I got the hang of it!  Best part of this step was using the ruler and chalk to measure my fabric.  Oh, and using the sewing machine.  It’s like driving the cars at DisneyWorld’s  Tomorrowland Speedway!

Finally, after all of those steps, I did it!!!!!! I made my first dress for my doll! It’s exactly what I wanted to create and I enjoyed making it.
