|Ok, that sounds simple enough, but there's more to it. Make the doll garment right after you've finished your primary project. Your machine is already threaded with the right color and you have the fabric right there, not stuffed away in a bag. Plus, every time you finish a project, you'll have one more piece of doll clothing to add toward building a wardrobe that you can give to your favorite doll-playing child. No last minute rushes to finish doll clothes in December!
Of course this tip is nothing new - our grandmothers routinely did this out of thrift.
After my mother mentioned saving scraps for doll clothes, I decided to start a wardrobe for my neice's 18 inch doll. I made a fleece vest for me and decided to use the leftover to make a fleece coat for her doll. Next will be a Loes Hinse cowl top for me and a tiny shirt for her doll. My neice lives 3000 miles away, so I have no fear of matching her doll! Hmm, except I may want to check what I pack when I visit!
