When three of the top 100 books on the Checker website feature clothes for 18″ dolls, you know what was under the Christmas tree! That was true at my house as well. And, since I am going for the award for best grandmother ever (I know there is stiff competition) why not make it the gift that keeps on giving???
With these books, I can add the awe factor to any occasion. Spending a few afternoons on these cold and snowy days is enough time to make outfits for the special events in their lives. Check out this book by Joan Hinds. It includes 20 different outfits all downloadable from a CD-ROM.

Going to the beach?
Hosting a tea party?
You get the idea…Why not host a class each month so your customers will actually set aside the time to make them? Be sure to have buttons and ribbons on hand. We all know little girls love the embellishments! And, why not invite the girls over the summer months? Keep the other classes a secret – but have a pajama party over the summer. They can make a pillow case, jammies for them, and jammies for their doll.
