clothes for (fake) babies

eve's teacher is every parent's dream; fun, smart, kind, engaging and so funny. she is also resourceful. in a school system dealing with horrendous cuts to an already insufficient budget, she manages, piece by piece, to get everything their little classroom needs. mostly through the incredible donorschoose.org. "teachers ask. you choose. children learn" such a valuable tool- both for teachers and for those who would like to give to the cause of education.

the most recent result of people's generosity through donorschoose.org is a group of four baby dolls that live in the dramatic play area of the classroom. clad only in diapers, these babies were in some serious need of coverage (and really, isn't the best part of playing with dolls the dressing and the undressing?). so, out of the scrap pile these four outfits were born. 

 

 

 

 

if you are looking to achieve super hero status among the group of girls in your daughter's pre-k class, make outfits for their dolls. they will look at you in wonder. they will love you. they will ask if you can make dresses for them. your daughter will squeeze your hand in appreciation and pride. you will be embarrassed by the amount of attention you are getting from these 4-year-olds. . . but not too embarrassed because, man, feeling like a super hero for a few minutes is fun.  

 

++eve would like to make it clear that these pictures are all of the same doll. the four dolls in the classroom are a much more accurate reflection of the diversity of the students. 

++ thanks to all of you for your concern and good wishes toward our little family. it is wonderful to be surrounded by so many kind and incredible people. we are all well and very thankful to be so. thank you, again!

as a little girl, all I wanted was for my mom and sisters to make mini versions of the clothes they were making for my dolls. I imagined purple taffeta prom dresses all miniature style and the like. Now as I (try to) sew, I can not imagine anything harder than making it barbie size!!

Oh my gosh those are so cute. I would love to make that star shirt and pants for my little boys... I wouldn't even know where to begin though.

And, if you happen to know, where are the dolls from? That is such a cute little chubby baby doll.

I love the clothes you made here! So cute. Did you use patterns? I want to make some doll clothes for my munchkin's dolls, but am kind of unsure where to start.
