Baby Doll Diaper Bag

I made doll diaper bags for the 2013 donation and then never got back to doing them last year. This year I decided it was a priority to get started on them so I'd have them finished for the Christmas donation. The pattern is one that was gifted to me a few years ago and still available for purchase here.

Along with the bag, this pattern includes directions for the box of wipes and a changing pad. I have another pattern with items to add that I still need to dig out, but at least the basics are finished for the 15" baby doll. I need to make a second one using sport yarn for wipes for the 12" baby doll. I will need to get started on that one this winter or have the potential that it will never get finished.

18 Inch Doll Afghan

As I mentioned in a previous post, one of my charity goals for the year was to get afghans done for both of the 18 inch doll donations. This is the second afghan.

This pattern comes from Crochet 2015 Day-to-Day Calendar and it works up very quickly. I'm considering using it for the baby doll's as I think it would work up easily with lighter yarn and a smaller hook.

The next project I didn't finish last year that I'd like to get done for this year is the diaper bags for the baby dolls. I have the one for the 15 inch doll started. Hopefully I'll be able to post it soon.

Baby Doll Nightgown

In working on adapting the Cabbage Patch outfits to the Mary Maxim soft body 15 Inch dolls it appears the preemies are the closest to the task. I worked on a nightgown pattern called "Purity" from an out of print leaflet, Cabbage Patch Crochet for Preemies from Plaid#8031.

In order to get the fit right I had to play with the hook size to get the body to fit right, but I was able to avoid having to sew buttons or snaps, so it worked for me.

This doll's wardrobe is growing quickly. I'm going to have to find some motivation for working on the 12 inch doll and the 18 inch doll clothes soon. It's hard when I keep finding projects I want to work on for the 15 inch doll.
