Madelon Shows Us How To Create An Outfit For Your Dolls Academy Awards Party!

Today Madelon shares with us her fun outfit for her dolls and their Academy Awards party! I love watching the red carpet preview show more then the Awards themselves so this is a really fun idea you can make your own outfits and create your own "Red Carpet" looks for your dolls!

 "I made this two piece Academy Award  ensemble from clothing purchased at Target and re purposed. First, I was captured by the coral pastel color scheme of the tutu toddler skirt."

"The colors are those similar to the Isabelle ballet line. All I did to the skirt was cut a small piece in the back (which can be repurposed for a six inch Doll's skirt) and secured it."

 "The top was fun to make. It actually came from a leg of child's footless dancer tights. The tights were on sale for $1.44. The other leg can be used for a dress."
 "These were a heavy weight, silky and shiny."
Thank you Madelon for sharing with us this great idea for making a one of a kind outfit for our dolls for the Academy Awards!

Madelon's Recent Trip To The DC Store To See All The New AG Items!

Madelon kindly shares her photos from a recent trip into the DC Store.
Madelon and I both really want to add this book to our collections!
This set is wildly popular! I love the polka-dots, Madelon loves the boots!
A view of the new table and chair covers. I am not wildly excited about this set. The pattern is not my favorite but I like the idea.
You could even pick up an edible cookie with Isabelle on it!

Bitty Baby and little girls have such cute options with the new dress don't you think?
Store exclusive, if you are going in you can make this Birthday Girl Shirt! Love it!
New Suit and cover up, any thoughts?
I like that you can buy it in girl size as well.
This set is the one I am most excited to see, watch for a similar craft idea I am doing for Doll Diaries in March!

I love the color of this new dress, I think it is very pretty and something I would pick up if I was in store.
Julie's new dress and set...
Kit (who doesn't wear pink) in her Pink Dress...
 This is super cute. I think it is such a fun set!
Julie and her new dog set... I am not sold on this.
As someone who had this particular styling unit I think this set is fantastic! Love this set.
Rebeca's Styling set...

Addy's Hair piece....I like the braid, I have heard mix thoughts on this set but I actually like it.
Not sure I am sold on the Hair piece for Caroline, even in the photo it looks like you can see the metal prongs. If anyone gets this I would love to hear what they think.
Madelon said the skirt even says Happy Birthday, such a fun set!
So cute this bitty set!

There are so many wonderful new releases in store and on line and sadly as a Canadian so much will not ship to Canada but for those of you excited about our Canadian stores opening this Spring you will be happy to know they have begun hiring staff......
Thank you Madelon for sharing these wonderful photos with us!

Bring An Extra Special Doll Home To Your Doll Family

So now many of you have seen my Extra special doll Hannah from Extra Special Dolls. I was so thrilled to support this wonderful company through their process to make a dream come true not just for their daughter but for all the families of special needs children who are looking to find themselves reflected in the doll world.

I have to tell you how much I love my Hannah doll, she is everything that I hoped she would be, well made, adorable and very photogenic! She fits very well into our doll family and she is one of my favorite dolls to use in my work here on my blog and on the other sites I work for.
Extra Special dolls are priced at $95 and shipped with in the USA for $12. There are 18 options for girl dolls and 9 options for boy dolls, each of them unique and made to love. You can take these dolls into the bath or swimming pool as well. They are designed for helping with fine and gross motor skills and you can even order your doll with a heart surgery scar.
The essence of these very beautiful children are captured in the soft and flattering features of these dolls.
Be sure to check out Extra Special Dolls Website by clicking here and if you already have one of these beautiful dolls please email me a photo so that I may share it with all of our readers.
