This shop offers every day doll wear also at fantastic prices from $7 to $25
"While the boys were in their preschool years I learned to macramé’. I also made Barbie doll clothes and sold them. I did quite well. They were very pretty. My grandchildren still play with them today. They love them.
After that most of my time was spent on working outside the home. But I still found time to do a lot of crafty things. I ended up with so many items I had to sell my items at a local craft store. I am still there today. "
I wanted to know how Marie got into making Doll Clothes...
"In 2001 I had an injury and was unable to work outside the home. I spent this time learning to quilt. The quilting bug really grabbed me. That is how I learned a lot about colors and precise sewing. I still do a lot of quilting but the demand for Doll Clothes has become greater than the demand for quilted items.
In 2005 my Granddaughter got her first American girl doll. What kind of grandmother would I be if I did not make her clothing? That was it for me. Making the clothes brings back the little girl in me. It is really neat to see how the ensembles look on the dolls. I really love producing these beautiful items. Recently I have started to make some of my own patterns. I am having very good results with these. This seems to be where I need to be. If the passion is there it seems the sales are also there."
