I was drawn to the colors and patterns that Ann uses and her photography is fantastic, you can really see the details in her work in this shot
These fantastic coats are priced starting at $10, a must have for any doll wardrobe with out breaking the bank.
Ann likes to knit, quilt (her favorite part of quilting is shopping for fabric), reading and sew. Ann is passionate about homeschooling, small government and her local farmer friends.
As for American Girl Ann's husband bought their daughter her first doll (Josefina) when she was 7. Ann didn't even know he was going to do that! Now they have up to 20 AG dolls and 5 others from Life of Faith and Vision Forum.
As for sewing, Ann started with a Raggedy Ann doll for her daughter when she was little. She says the first outfit she made was a robe for Barbie, however she does not have a recollection of that at all. One of the reasons Ann started sewing for the AG dolls was she could make a better quality outfit for less money. Anne is not sure she has a favorite thing to make although she enjoys making the coats she sells because they go together quickly.
Ann sells mainly doll coats and aprons in her Etsy shop, but also sell to friends.She had one friend ask for a mini wardrobe which included, pajamas, a skirt, two jackets and a dress.Sewing seems to run in the family Ann says "My daughter made leggings and a knit t-shirt to go with the mini-wardrobe"
"I enjoy sewing and creating to provide extra spending money for me as well as donate some of my proceeds to friends who have adopted from Eastern Europe. I hope I can continue to do it for many years to come!"
