Jada will be six soon. I won't be there in May .......... but I will be there next week.
I saw this doll beckoning for me to buy her. She was dressed in a mediocre outfit of pink and blue. I picked up the box and studied her for just a moment before adding her to my cart. At the time I had no idea whose doll she would be. She met the criteria for me to buy her:
1. She was on sale.
2. I could make clothes for her.
Turns out that I can also buy items for her. She wears a size 3-6 months. I picked up one outfit at a consignment store. She is also in possession of new socks. And Jada has a birthday coming.
Jada picked out the 'hello kitty' fabric on a trip to the fabric store with Gramma on my last visit. I am not a big 'hello kitty' fan. But Jada is, and ....... it was on sale! I am a big fan of clearance sales. So Dolly is sporting a capri set made from Jada's fabric.
Dolly and Jada will match right down to the bows. I had a pattern for the capris for Dolly ..... sort of, but the top is my own creation for Dolly. Jada's is a combination of two patterns that I liked.
Jada had requested a Minnie Mouse dress. We searched for polka dot fabric, but could only find black on white. I was going to add a big red bow and hope that she would accept it as one of Minnie's wardrobe. When I got home and started looking through fabric that I buy on sale and keep until inspiration hits me, I found the white on red! I think I bought it after Halloween one year. Perfect!
