My sweet niece Alexa and I spent some quality time during our Thanksgiving visit together with the American Girl Doll website. She was showing me which outfits she wanted for her doll for Christmas. You can also get matching doll and girl outfits. It's all very cute.
This is what she picked out. Zebra! (She's a spunky one.)
Now as much as I love the American Girl organization their prices are a bit over my budget. So why not make my own?
So I did.
With soft, cozy corduroy...great for cold days.
And satiny purple ribbon..
My very own AG Doll came in handy for the photo shoot. She, who was affectionately named "Chuckie" by my husband, got her own homemade leggings.
Lexa got a $4.99 pair from target. God Bless Target. Amen.
(Please ignore that "Chuckie's" zebra stripes are vertical...
I refused to buy more fabric so had to use the scraps I had left.)
A girl & her doll...a perfect pair.
