Slumber Party Fun!

Did you go to slumber parties when you were a girl? I did and I have the fondest memories.

JoAnn and I are continuing our summer sewing challenge. She sent me this fabric and we both made something with it this week. Her blog is HERE.

Visit Shelia at Note Songs. She is making doll clothes this summer too!

I made little shorty pajamas this week and little pillows to match.

My dollies have a pretty quilt that my sweet cousin Cindy made for them. (under their feetsies)

And my girlfriend Pat made the Betsy paper dolls.

They are such fun!

I even made the little fuzzy slippers following instructions HERE. Of course I changed things up a little with my own ideas. But she gave me the inspiration!

Thanks for joining me for Wednesday Wee Ones!

Don’t forget to take time to

PLAY and SING!

Cute, cute doll clothes, Diane! And the paper dolls brought back such fun memories of staying with my grandma and playing with the Betsy McCall paper dolls at the back of the magazine. I loved it! BTW, I mentioned you in my blog post this morning. Don't worry, it was all good. LOL Blessings on your day, my friend.

Diane, If Savannah saw those PJ's she would want them for her dolls. She's a bit old for dolls....but still loves to dress them. She needs to get into sewing for them. Love the cute slippers too. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Ever so cute - just love the shortie pjs. Looks like the girls are having fun - but then who doesn't have fun at a slumber party. I remember all the fun we had at them. Sweet post.

Oh Diane, these two sleeping outfits look fabulous. Your dolls look so cute in them. The little matching pillows, the dog, the paper doll, everything looks perfect. BRAVO!

Linda Kay said...

Diane, I'm in love with those cute little slippers, and the pjs are adorable on the dolls. You have outdone yourself. I do have fond memories of slumber parties, and my girls always had them for birthday celebrations.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, those paper dolls are so sweet. They bring back such memories of when my girls played with them growing up. The blue and white outfit is so pretty, Diane. You are really good at sewing, ya know that? Yes, I had my first slumber party in sixth grade. My mom made a small pizza for each one of the girls. :~)

Have a good rest of the week.

Sarah Beth said...

Too cute! I love their shorty pj's and their sweet quilt. I'd say they will have sweet dreams if they ever go to sleep! (Aren't sleepovers code for "how long can we stay awake" LOL!)

Lynn said...

LOVE the ducky fabric! Everything turned out cute, great slippers too:@)

I did love slumber parties when I was a kid! You did a wonderful job creating such cute pajamas.

Kathy said...

Your girls are adorable, especially those fuzzy slippers.

Maggie Ann said...

Those are so sweet! Love the slippers and the paper dolls also. These little dollies have a good home....I sewed a 'cat' doll once, and loved making its small clothes. Thanks for the comment on my blog....it was so nice of you to take the time to do that....especially when my blogging has been infrequent this summer. I really appreciated your comment. Have a happy day! Maggie Ann

Very nice baby doll outfits and pretty faced dolls.

How cute is all this.

Que bonitas!!!!!!

Deborah Montgomery said...

SO cute!! Love this post. I love that you have so much fun. I actually hosted a book club sleepover last weekend -- 7 of us in our jammies. But I have to say none of us looked as cute as your dollies!

Linda H said...

So cute! I remember pyjama parties... A long time ago....

Candy S said...

Absolutely adorable! I am so in love with the little blue and white jammies. I remember birthday party sleep overs when I was growing up where several moms joined the sleep over fun with the kids. I have two dollies coming this week that I bought off of Ebay. I do hope they arrive safely because I sure do want to play too! You gals look like you are having so much fun creating these wonderful outfits for your dollies.

PS: I love the Betsy cutout paper dolls too!!!
