Western Classic Madelon Fun Find Re-Purposed Outfit!

This is one of my favorite re-puroosed Madelon's doll outfits. Madelon has shared how she takes everyday baby outfits and makes them into wonderful doll clothes for a fraction of the price of what you would pay in store.

This western-style dress was a newborn baby top. I used pink bakery twine as a belt. The had was a pet hat!
The boots are from Target!
This is such a fun outfit! I know my nieces would love it!

Great Job Madelon!

Madelon's Zulily Fun Find! American Fashion World 18 inch Doll Outfit


Madelon recently made a purchase on Zulily and bought a brand called American Fashion World. today she shares her review with us.
The rayon fabric wrinkled easily and I would recommend ironing it.

Rompers are very popular this spring season and I love the colors and patterns in this one.
Madelon also purchased these very modern sandals for her dolls.
These are very fun little sandals.

This was a great buy and a truly wonderful fun find!
Thank you Madelon for sharing your purchase with us today!

Madelon's Great Idea For A Fun Summer Dress Or Bathing Top Cover

Madelon has made a cute no sew dress or bathing suit cover from a child's pair of leggings!
You can choose the length and make your dress a mini or maxi depending on where you cut the leggings.
Add some flip flops and some summer glasses and you are good to go to the beach!
Don't you just love the French Maccarons! Great pattern and fun find Madelon!
 You can easily make your doll a Tankini top with this fun pattern as well!
Pair it with your favorite dolly swim wear bottoms like Madelon did!

The Perfect Beach Chair! A Madelon Fun Find!

 Madelon has found some really great fun finds! I wish I had these!
"I am happy to share with you the two picture frame chairs I found at Burlington Coat Factory for $8 and $9 dollars! I love the light turquoise and coral so I had to buy them."
 "remove the glass from the frame before letting the kids play with them!"
"Our dolls fit perfectly in them!"
I love these chairs!
"I bought a matching adult sized towel from walmart that cost $5.88, but I cut it down for doll sized towels and a great outdoor carpet!
This is a great summer playset, for year round play!
Thank you Madelon for this amazing idea and wonderful fun find!
