Karen's Adventures back to Barbie!

Well I held off in sharing the new barbies with my youngest Niece 4 days. But the reaction I got was well worth it!
#thatfirstbarbiefeeling there is magic in that first doll of your own. Capturing that feeling was worth every penny. She was over the moon with the pool and throughout the afternoon I brought out each of the 5 Barbies I had bought at the dollar store for her. It was better than Christmas.
All in all the pool exceeded my expectations too, it was very easy to put together, had easy to access play options and made this Auntie and little one very happy!
A great journey back to that Barbie Feeling I had growing up.

Sew This Sunday!

Craft Gossip sent me this in their newsletter this week and I had to share. I love sewing for dolls and having patterns that are easy and fast are important to me. So when I sat this one I knew I had to share. You can use this as a dress or you can use it as a night gown. This is the perfect pattern to create party favors for that dolly sleepover party you were thinking of throwing or a great scrap buster pattern for all the left over holiday print fabrics you might have. Happy Sewing this Sunday! Click here for the pattern and original Craft Gossip Post.
