See I said I would be back.. Not to sure if any one even reads but hey whatever... I can't believe Christmas is Next week here I am Sitting saying ooo WOW 9 days till xmas not think just next week is Christmas.. I'm kinda losing it OK
Recycle Reuse REDUCE or is is Reduce Reuse Recycle hahaha That's what I call this lil pouch it is made out of a old pair of jeans of Ethan's and the Zipper is also from the SAME pair of Jeans.. IN the top left corner you will see on of my son's drawings. ( HE is 4 turning 5 in January) Well my son doesn't draw much to nothing usually colors and that's about it or scribbles. NOT one for drawing any way not like his mommy. SO when he drew me this pic I had no choice i Loved it and thought it would be adorable on a lil pouch so Off i went hehehe This pouch is extra small it is more like a coin pouch and that is just what my son uses it for I even added his name to it.. HE LOVED IT...

MY kids absolutely love it when I come out of my sewing room with something for them.. MY daughter who is 2 going on 16 thinks all bags I make are for her lol..

Any one who has lil Girls and lil girls who love barbies probley have NAKED Barbie's. Well in my house that's all we HAD. Barbies and Naked ones.. I looked in a couple stores to see if i could possibly just find clothes for these things but of course either they don't have any or there sold out or I'm looking in the wrong places. SO I Decided to make some I down sized on patterns i had drew out others and Finally got some workable clothes that actually dress the barbies and not leave them naked or barely clothed like many of them barbie clothes out there. NEVER IN MY LIFE did I think I would care on the way a barbie was dressed until i had my daughter. Some of them clothes are really kinda how do I say it Skanky. To the right is a pic of two dresses I made For her barbies right now and to the left I shirt ( my first try) and she is also wearing a lovely old fashioned long skirt hahaha

I have made two more and hope to make a dozen or so more for the lil girls I know and for my own daughter.

These look way better on the dolls them selves But sense there put away and My daughter is awake I'm not able to steal one of her barbie to take photos lol.. I made these a lil different I was going for a strapless but the tops kept falling down so I had to put some straps:)


To make:

Materials needed
Embroidery Thread
Left over fabric Shreds or Polyester fluff

Step 1: Cute TWO Tree Shapes out of GREEN FELT ( or any color you would like)
Step 2: Take one piece and Embroider what ever you would like on it to decorate your Tree.
Step 3: Once finished Decorating Get your other piece of tree and stitch around both To make like a lil pillow, Leave open the bottom to stuff.
Step 4: Stuff them I used fabric shreds that where next to me sense i Was to lazy to go get my stuffing. Make sure you don't over stuff or under stuff.
Step 5: Sew the bottom shut.
Step 6: Make a lil loop through the top of the tree to make a lil thing to hang it with :)
It is simple if you ever made anything with felt it should be straight forward.. If any one needs more detailed instructions just send me a comment and I could add photos of the process
Well Thats about it for today I need to get busy cleaning sence christmas is NEXT week hahaha

Kewl Barbie clothes, I agree with you about the Skanky clothes they put those dolls in and then they expect the kids to not want to dress like that????

I love your Barbie clothes! I used to play with them all the time when I was a little girl. They're all packed away in my parent's basement right now. =)

But yeah, Barbie clothes can be pretty skanky! Maybe if you added some thin elastic to the top of the dresses you wouldn't need the straps? I think they're cute with straps, too.
