A Day at the Beach, DIY Crochet pattern set fits American Girl dolls

Welcome to Summer!


With the weather heating up (110 degrees here today with the heat index) your 18" doll is going to want to cool off by hitting the beach or pool!   But she'll need accessories to her swimsuit, and now you can make them yourself!  Included in this pattern is a swimsuit cover-up, beach bag, and flip-flops!


She'll need a beach bag to keep all her sunblock lotion, clothes or other accessories in.  And the drawstring style makes it easy for her to access her accessories when she needs them!


When she's not in the water, she'll need a cover-up, and this sleeveless style will help her stay cool!


Flip-Flop crochet pattern fits American Girl dolls
And don't forget the flip-flops!  The sand may be to hot to walk on, but with these flip-flops on her feet, she'll be able to walk across the beach with ease to find the perfect spot for her and her friends to claim their space and spread out their beach towels!

Crochet many of these sets, so each of your 18" dolls will have one in the color (or colors) of their swimsuit!   The "Day at the Beach" crochet pattern set is available here!

Slumber Party

For the end of the school year this year, Kelly and her friends decided to throw a slumber party!


First their parents let them pick out new sleeping bags at TracysDesigns1.  They had fun scrolling through all the new prints in the sleeping bag section and after lots of thought, discussion, and of course giggles, they decided which ones they wanted!


When the night of the slumber party came, they  all snuggled up in their sleeping bags and put on Anne of Green Gables to watch!  It was a fun party!

A day at the beach!

My American girl dolls, Emily, Kit, and Kelly are getting excited that summer is just around the corner.   They've already been trying on their new swimsuits/leotards.  Emily is wearing the purple leotard, Kelly is wearing the Teal leotard, and Kit is wearing the hot pink leotard.  Which one is your favorite?

Now that they've each picked out their swimsuits for this summer, they are begging me to crochet them swimsuit cover-ups, beach bags and flip-flops using this A Day at the Beach crochet pattern!

Included in the crochet pattern is the swimsuit cover-up, beach bag, and flip-flop sandels! Close pictures show below.

A Day in Paris

Over the years I've made a list of places I'd like to travel to someday.  It's not a list that's written down anywhere, just a list in my mind of places I'd like to go and things I'd like to see while there.  I'm sure most of us have those dream lists.

Today, my American girl doll Emily has added a location to her dream list.  Can you guess where she's dreaming about?
Okay, kind of obvious, right. lol

Hopping on a pink scooter and driving around Paris does sound like fun.  (Of course, you have to remember which side of the street to stay on, or fun might not be the right word!)   Strolling by the pink Eiffel Tower.   Wait!  What color did I say?  Pink?  That can't be right.  Let's take a closer look.

It is Pink!

I knew Emily was imaginative, I just didn't realize to this extent!  But hey, if you're going to dream, why not dream big!   

Then maybe she'll also get her picture painted standing by the pink Eiffel Tower by the artist that's standing my that lamppost.  


Hmmm... it looks like Emily had fun time dreaming about A Day In Paris, even when she's actually out camping with her family!

If your doll wants to dream about A Day in Paris, while wearing this t-shirt and leggings outfit, it can be found here: A Day in Paris T-Shirt & Leggings

Hang a banner, It's time for an American Girl doll party!

There are so many talented Artisans on Artfire!  Here is a collection I created of a few items that would be great for throwing an American girl doll themed party!

With warmer spring days now here, the Ice Cream shop is having "1950's days" with a Sock Hop this week!

Emily has been having a lot of fun at the sock hop!

After school on Monday she wore a hot pink poodle skirt with a gray poodle and a white blouse!  She also wore white bobby socks and saddle shoes, but she took the saddle shoes off when the music started.  After all it was a Sock hop, not a shoe hop! lol.



They both had a lot of fun listing to the 1950's music and hearing their parents tell them how to do the "twist" and the "mash potatoes"!

Will it be a white Christmas?

"Oh, no!  The snow is melting!" Kellie yelled to Emily when she walked past the window and saw that the rain was melting the white snow.

"I don't even want to look!" Emily called back.  "I want a white Christmas."
