I love Josefina!
I have very little for her (sad face), but I want to see what will be new for her in the spring. In this post I wanted to speak directly to the younger readers (those in school with no job). I know we ALL want what AG has in store for our dolls and it can be tricky trying to decide which items to get with either birthday or holiday money.
I want to encourage you to learn to sew! I have made Josefina three new skirts, a lot of her sets are patterned skirts paired with a Camisa. You can print patterns for Josefina HERE.
I found $1.99 fabric quarters at Joann's, (they sell them at Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, Hancock's and other fabric stores). I used Josefina's meet skirt as a guide and created three new skirts for her. I used left over fabric to make sashes and a shawl.
This lime fabric is actually a TOWEL from the Dollar Tree!
I made a reversible sash.
Using scraps of leftover fabric, I added a border along the bottom then trimmed the skirt in grosgrain ribbon.
I made this skirt and both Spanish pom pom hats, (mini Samantha wears a vintage Barbie skirt).
Get as creative as you like! Ask your mom, grandma or aunts for leftover fabrics, then use what you like to make beautiful one-of-a-kind (OOAK) skirts.
