I shop at thrift stores and buy cheapest infants clothes and take off the buttons and zipper to use for my doll clothes. When I go to Walmart I always check the clearance aisle sometimes you can found packs of little buttons for 20 cents a pack and little packs bows for 50 cents to a dollar. You can find so many different thing you can use for the dolls.

“I shop for [notions, and fabric] at [Michaels, Fabricland, Walmart and dollarstores ]" and

“I have the hardest time finding [tiny zippers, just the right small buttons for the project I am doing and I have had to shorten zippers and used other things than buttons to serve as buttons.
When finding fabric now I tend to go look at Value village or a thrift store for small patterned fabric already made up to make smaller outfits with it. Really still into recycling which is what I did when my kids are small by making their clothes out of adult clothes.]”

I buy almost all my doll patterns thru Pixie Faire as almost all the designers I like have become part of your team. More and more have come to your team as the years go by. When I first started some years ago, I had to go more to the designers themselves.

I too have a hard time finding material with the smaller prints that would look great on the dolls, especially the wellies. I live in a rural area and do a lot of my fabric shopping at the local Goodwill and Beverlys. Whenever I’m near a Joann’s fabric I usually stop. I notice some of you have a hard time finding zippers, Zipper that Doll is good place to find that and also I just discovered Home Sew. Looks like there would be cute notions and buttons in there. Happy Sewing.
