Are you kidding me….more Bonnets?

Surely you didn’t think the bonnets I showed you yesterday (HERE) were all the ones I had? I have plenty more and while I’m trying to figure out who’s next, I thought I’d share another days worth of bonnets with you… You don’t have to pick a favorite, but if you have one, I’d love to know which one…Then maybe tomorrow I’ll share which one is MY favorite…

In no particular order…let’s see what I have today…

…Speaking of BONNETS…how about a slide show?

The talk in my sewing studio is why Kirsten got TWO bonnets to go with her newest dress set. I hear the “girls” chattering on the shelf and it gave me an idea for today’s post…Bonnets! I’ve never done a full post just showcasing the many, many, many bonnets I’ve made over the years. I’ve gone to the archives and dug out a few fun pictures for you… now pay attention… I might ask you at the end which one is your favorite!

Before I show you the pictures, I thought I better let you know Kirsten’s Prairie dress set did get listed on Ebay. You can check it out HERE! You can also click on the picture at the right side bar, and it will take you to the listing…

[Just another note too… Ebay has changed the way we can list things for the dolls and they won’t let anyone list their handmade things under American Girl. It has to be an authentic doll or dress to be in that category. It’s been pretty frustrating for us sellers, but we have to comply or they suspend us. They will pull your listing if you try to put something in a category where it’s not allowed. So we have to list our things under “clothes and accessories.” If you just type in Kirsten American Girl you won’t find my listing, but if you type in Kirsten American Girl and then add “dress” it will come up. You can do that with any of my listings…just type in what you are looking for and then add “dress.” I always add “dress” to my title for Ebay listings. Just thought I’d mention that.]

Here’s one picture of it too…

The Prettiest Girl on the Prairie ~ Kirsten’s new dress set…

I have many pictures to show you but I wasn’t able to get Kirsten’s new prairie dress listed on Ebay. That’s going to be my goal for Tuesday evening. I was helping my mom all day long with some phone issues. Hopefully the pictures I took will make up for not getting it listed. This way, you can look it over and decide if it’s a dress that would fit in with your girls…

Kirsten’s going to a family get together, but she doesn’t appear to have much to take… you’ll have to see why in my listing.

This dress set has quite a few pieces… just for fun… a dress that’s pretty flattering, a pair of white embroidered pantalettes, a beautiful white vintage hankie apron, a fancy bonnet and a not so fancy bonnet, a fun loose woven shawl and a basket of apples. So here are some pictures to show you…

Ten Teasers for American Girl Kirsten’s Prairie Dress Set…

I really hate to keep teasing you about my doll dresses, but I’m not quite done with Kirsten’s blue prairie dress and I want to show it to you in a Full Reveal as soon as I get everything done. It was a good choice to use this blue instead of the lighter one I started with. I’m serious…I would probably still be fighting with that piece of fabric if I had kept trying to make it work. Just between you and me, I’m SO SO glad I gave up on it. A fabric that won’t cooperate is about as useless to me as a sewing machine that’s being contrary!

Okay, enough on that… I do have one favor to ask you before I share my pictures with you of Kirsten’s dress. I had a reader contact me and ask about the My Life As dolls. They are carried at Walmart and you can see them by clicking this link…

My Life As Dolls

I don’t know anything about these dolls, but I told her I had “readers” who probably would… and I would ask them…
So I’m asking, can anyone answer Amber’s questions? This is what she wrote me…

“We just bought my niece a “My Life As” doll (she’s 6, so expensive dolls for playing are out of the question, especially since this is her first really good doll) but noticed the joints are very stiff and hard to pose in a sitting position. These dolls have the vinyl chest plate instead of a full soft/stuffed torso. Do you happen to know if they have strung joints as well and any way to make them move a little easier? Since she isn’t stuffed all the way to the neck, there is not “neck string” to untie and take a peek. We can’t seem to get her to a full sitting position and don’t want to ruin her by forcing it, especially since she is brand new! Any insight would be greatly appreciated.”

If anyone has anything to comment on, you can do it below or send me a comment in the “Contact Me” section under the header on my blog.

Okay, now who’s ready for some pictures…well, some partial pictures? Just think of these as pieces of a puzzle and it will be more fun… Let’s start at the bottom and work our way up this time…

Oh, and you’ll have to get over the fact that some of my pictures look different colors. When some of them are taken further back and then cropped, they turn out a different color. Some of these look very washed out and some look very very blue. I would say the color is the most accurate in the picture of the growth tucks. It’s a pretty country blue…
