Unlike me my mom tends to have a little bit of talent when it comes to making things so I asked her if instead of buying the kids a bunch of stuff if she would make them some things. She never really gave me an answer so I thought that once again she was ignoring me. She proved me wrong. Not only did she make the kids things for Christmas, but she also made some things for Sophie and Kylie's birthdays. Since I always share my diy/crafting disasters I thought I would share some of my moms success'.
For Sophie's birthday she made a doll crib. I'm not positive, but I think she got the plans from Ana White. This thing is really heavy and solid so I don't have to worry about the kids overloading it and it breaking.
For Christmas she made the girls a ton of doll clothes and this little rack to hang them on.
The little containers on the bottom are from Targets dollar spot and hold shoes, socks, etc. On the ends are hooks for doll back packs, purses, hats, etc. The rack currently has two boxes (24ct.) of hangers from American girl and some from pottery barn kids and could probably hold a few more. She also made a doll bed and bedding. The bedding plans are from Ana White and the bedding she made from a duvet cover from Bombay kids that I bought to make stuff for Kylie's room (but obviously never did).
Audrey's birthday is coming up in March and I'm already thinking up a wish list to give her!
