4 Weeks To Christmas Sew Your Dolls Some Winter Gloves With My Free Pattern

This year I hosted a craft along with me and I recommended a pattern from Me and My Gal's Blog. I have since created my own slightly longer gloves that I find fit better. 
You can down load this easy pattern by clicking here.  
I find that sewing fleece gloves makes them have a bit more stretch then felt but you could use felt and knit fabric as well.
Sewing gloves for your dolls is a great doll accessory that fits well in to a stocking or holiday cracker but remember to remove them from your dolls hands when you are not playing with them so that you can avoid color transfer from your fleece to your dolls hands.

2014 Advent Calender Swap!



Many of you may know that ever year I work on dolly advent calenders for one of my swap groups and this year I am so excited as all the items have arrived from my partners!
In our sewing group on line we have done an advent swap now for 4 years. Last year we changed the format so that we all sewed, bought or created 6 items for our partners advent calender and then we mailed them to our 4 partners. That we we all get an assortment of doll items made by each other.  The above photo is the first one I ever did and it was so much fun we decided to do it every year.

For 2012 We got smart! We used a 24 pocket over the door shoe holder to hold our gifts! This was a great idea and it makes wonderful doll clothes storage!
 
Last year I decided I would like to do one this year for Advent and the eight nights of Hanukkah, thanks to www.designmegillah.com 
So this year I am excited to do both!

This year Hanukkah is Tuesday December 16th to Wednesday December 24th 
 Here are the packages that have arrived for this years Advent Swap. I am looking forward to sharing these items as I open them through December. 
I hope you are inspired by today's post and that you may consider making your own Dolly Advent or 8 Night  wall hanging gifts for the Doll lover in your life.
I am already looking forward to our 2015 swap!
