American Girl Tote Bags For The Doll On The Go

 Julep couldn't be left out while I was taking pictures
of my latest and greatest sewing projects.
Careful Julep ... you might get sewn into a dress!
 American Girl Tote Bag
For the little girl who enjoys traveling with her doll.
 Derby gave me the 4-paws up as his way of
approving of my latest sewing project.
 These are the beginning of the AG totes I'm
making for my sister Debby.  There will be a total
of 9 when I'm done.  This is a nice way to use up a 
lot of fabric which in turn leaves room to buy more!
The pocket which holds the American Girl doll.
I couldn't help add a fancy trim across the top.

 I had enough of this fabric to make two bags plus
the items below.  This fairy tote bag has been mailed
out to our grand daughter [Kaitlyn] in California.
I think she's going to love it!
 These items went in the box also [minus the doll].

 Fairy Party Dress

 Derby ... don't worry ... all these will be gone
in October ... then I can start all over again.
 Remember I had said I was going to relocate all the 
clothing into a larger dresser?  Well, as you can see
that didn't happen and the mound of clothing
keeps getting taller and taller.  [Each drawer
is stuffed with clothing also!]
So, technically I'm not a hoarder because
I sent this box out to Kaitlyn today.

I'll be at my Quilting Guilds Community Outreach
BBQ and Sew-in on Wednesday.  I'm making
mini-blueberry muffins to go along with morning
coffee and for lunch Wilson has made me a batch of
his famous and sinful Kentucky Corn Pudding.


  1. Those bags are fantastic! I like the goodies that go inside, too....

  2. those dresses are just beautiful! You are very talented!

  3. Not long now till they are all gone and you can start again. Great job and we loved seeing it all. Have a great day.
    Best wishes Molly
