Create A Great Look For Lea With This Madelon No Sew Doll Clothing Idea!

No end in sight to Maelon's creative no sew doll clothing finds, this week my in box is full of truly inspiring looks for dolls for just pennies! Using a pair of baby pants, Madelon has created a tropical inspired pant suit look for her doll and using a child's hair clip pulled the look together!
The key to this look is the elastic waistband top and bottoms, simply by sliding the pants on the doll and folding the waist band in, creates the look!

The wide legs of the baby pants make this look truly authentic! Thank you Madelon for this fun find! We love this look on Lea!

Happy Birthday To Samantha, Let's Celebrate With A Visit To Tyson's Ice Cream Parlor.

Happy Birthday To Samantha! Madelon and Samantha shares their Tyson's Ice Cream Shop with us today!
This is a very well made and heavy wood play set! It was priced over $300. Lots of amazing details.
I love the little scoops of ice cream and the little pink roses on the plates.
The candy jar is plastic.
All set and ready for a friend!
This set has so many wonderful little details. Even the mirror has beautiful details.
The ice cream fits in the three containers under the cash register.
From the cones to the cash register this set has so many wonderful pieces and is a collectors dream!

Can you see all the scoops of ice cream it comes with?
Do you have a favorite flavor?
Madelon and I agree this is one of the best sets American Girl ever came out with.
What do you think?
Thank you Madelon for sharing your set with us and Happy Birthday Samantha!
