American Girl MANIA

It has hit us.  American Girl has come into our lives and we will never be the same.

"Nellie" joined us in August when Peighton was in my little brothers wedding.  She was thier flower girl and they gave her Nellie as a thank you present.  She couldn't have been happier.  The only downside of Nellie initially was that she only came with one outfit-the horror!

It's a good thing Peighton has a crafty mama!  In no time we were whipping out clothing, accessories, pajamas and many matching outfits for Peighton as well!  And I must say, I am SO GLAD that I can make these things-have you visited the American Girl site and seen thier prices!?!?!  Whoa.  Good gifts for the Grandmas to get Peighton!

Here are a few of the dresses I made the past few weeks.  I am going to attempt to use my newfound scanning skills and try to scan the A-line dress pattern that I drafted.  It is so super easy.  I just hope that I can get it on here!!! No promises, but I will try.

And here is Nellie, Peighton and Nora.  We affectionately refer to Nora as our friend from the other side of town...
