Doll DIY: Winter Gear!

So I'm pretty handy with a crochet hook and whenever I take the wigs off dolls I'm working on, I don't really like to leave their poor little heads naked so I put on this:
Molly modeling my hat a few months back!
It's a beanie I made forever ago! The point of this story is that my best friend has four modern dolls and I decided that I should just make hat and mitten sets for her dolls as well as for my three! I finished up her sets this week and as her birthday is today actually, I mailed them Monday. Today she got them so I feel like I can show them off!

Dressing Your Doll on a Dime: The Conclusion

Welcome to the final post in my Dressing Your Doll on a Dime series. If you haven't yet you can read the first three parts here, here, and here!

This has been a surprisingly hard post to write. It's not that I don't know what to say. It's more that I have TOO MUCH to say! So I'm going to break this down into a few categories. We'll go with packaging, outfit quality, shoe quality, accessory quality and price.

Doll DIY

In August Doll Diaries featured a couple of crafts (as part of their Camp Doll Diaries activities) that I thought looked really easy so I decided to try them out. I did this all over the last couple of weeks and today you get to see the results!

The first was a DIY doll sundress that you can see instructions for here. Basically it's just dyeing the Springfield Collection's white nightgown. I decided to do a blue dress for myself and a red dress for one of my best friend's dolls, so I ran down to Michaels to get supplies:
