Sneak Peak......

I feel like I have lived in my sewing room the past couple of weeks. I have been busy sewing some fun Christmas gifts for Reese from us and from Maga, as well as a few gifts for others. Here are a few sneak peaks into what Reese will be getting on Christmas morning. I had such a fun time sewing them. Hopefully Reese has even more fun playing with them!!!

I decided that Reese's dolls needed some new clothes. Some of the dresses coordinate with dresses I have made Reese. The others are just because. Don't they look so cute sitting there together :)

Of course, I couldn't just make one dress per doll.....

I also decided that each doll need a new diaper. I used a great tutorial from Lindsey over at The Cottage Mama. She is such a sweet person and another blogger I hope to have the privilege of meeting one day. I know that Reese and her daughter, Savannah, would get along so well! I also love all of her fun and timeless designs and her use of trims (especially piping)! Here is the tutorial I used. I am also hoping to try out her camera strap tutorial after the new year!

I just want to squeeze them :) Of course each doll needs more then one diaper!!!

I love that Reese will have a few new, home-made things to play with....even better, they were free since everything I used was from my scraps and sewing desk!!!

AND....a little sneak peak at the project that Maga asked me to make for Reese. I will have to wait and take picture after Christmas since I didn't have the entire gift here at my house. I can't wait to see what Reese thinks when she opens this gift :)

I am so relieved that I finished Reese's last princess upcycle dress this morning. I hurried up and wrapped them while she was napping and forgot to take any pictures. I love how they turned out!!! I will post pictures of them as well after Christmas!

Now to go relax and enjoy the last little bit of this Christmas season!!!


  1. Oh wow, Amber! I am so impressed that you got so much done. I haven't sewn a single thing for anyone for Christmas. Not even dresses for the girls. I can't beleive it, the dolls even have a change of diapers. Too cute! Merry almost Christmas! Loved your card by the way. :)

  2. Everything about this post is adorable! You are so creative!

  3. the dolls are so cute!! can't wait to see more of the doll quilts!! they look adorable so far!! :)
