I have the hardest time finding small buttons and zippers on the spot. I usually order them online so over order for when I get the “need” to make something using these items. Our stores don’t seem to carry these supplies.

I shop for fabrics for my doll clothes at the thrift store. I buy lightly used clothing that may have a minor issue like a faulty zipper or be out of style but still has good material. It may make a full outfit or two, or could be paired with other fabrics I have.

I shop for fabric for doll clothes at thrift stores. Baby girl dresses are often lightly used, have appropriately sized small prints and have enough fabric to make doll clothes. Patterns can also be cut strategically to include embroidery or other embellishment on the dresses.

I shop for my doll buckles (look for children’s or ladies sandals with straps with 1/2" to 5/8" sized buckles – remove and reuse) at second hand stores. Purses provide leather for shoes plus small D-rings and buckles. Shop the children’s and infant section for small prints. You can find a large section of knits and cottons print size appropriate also. I go shopping on days they run specials – like stuff your bag full for $2.00. Happy hunting!

I shop everywhere for doll sewing fabrics and notions: Joann’s, Hobby Lobby if I go there, Walmart, and especially on line at Home Sew (where I am somewhat successful. Herrschners also sometimes has buttons, and other notions, At one time I could find cord stops at CR, but whoever made them stopped making them at least 6 years ago. I may have one set still in my button case; I’ll go look and see if I have the name on the card for it later.
