 Kate has a vast love for her American Girl dolls, and as I am sure you know, their clothes and accessories can get really expensive.  So, I thought I would try my hand at making a dress for her new doll, McKenna.  Well, that didn’t go so well, so I opted for making a book bag for an American Girl doll instead.

I started with two 6 X 6 squares of scrap fabric I had in my stash.

I folded the edges inward about 1/4 inch, folding over twice, then I sewed all the way around on each square.

I then cut a piece of ric rac 6 inches long and sewed the end to the inside of one of the square panels.

I made sure to place the ends close to the edges.

Next, I placed the square panels together right sides together, and sewed all the way around leaving the top open.

Then I turned the bag right side out.

I hot glued on a large pink button, then a green gem as well.  All finished!

Now, McKenna has a cute little bag to carry her school books in.  Maybe I’ll give the dress another try, because this truly was fun!
