I've been away from the blog this week, frantically sewing more tiny clothes for my little Olivia's Christmas present. I'm making the entire 1959 wardrobe! I honestly think that this has been more fun for me than it will ever be for her! You can see the first set of vintage Barbie clothes that I made, along with some Q & A here

I love a handmade Christmas. We did it last year too and the kids still play with the things we made for them. This weekend, Pj and I took up the whole dining room, cutting and sewing and gluing. He made some really awesome minecraft toys for Rhys and I made this little raccoon doll with some outfits for Olivia. She asked for a friend for her Foxy doll that I made last year.
This week, I finished accessories for Barbie and packaged the outfits in clear bags with backing board and stitched each article to a paper print out of the original catalog illustrations.
I still have about 6 outfits and some accessories to finish but it's coming along really well! See the whole collection on Instagram with #vavoomvintagebarbies
Have you ever done a handmade Christmas?
