I shop for doll related items in my over abundant stash of everything first. I can thank clothes that no longer fit (me, hubby and grands), neighbors gave their stashes when they moved, friends and family have “donated” and I have gotten boxes of stuff at garage sales. I will need to live to 300 to use it all. And yet, I still buy stuff, but mostly shoe soles from, wait for it, Pixie Faire!

I love to shop for fabric and recycle clothes for fabric and buttons. I have a huge stash of fabric and notions. I love to plan out what I am going to make and plan based on what I have. I don’t have overall buckles so I don’t make overalls that need buckles. Plastic separating zippers can be cut down. I have more fabric now than I have time left on this earth to use, so I have begun to slowly part with some of my fabric.

I shop through Ali Express for all sorts of things to do with the dolls. It can take a while to get the orders from China but I’ve always been happy with the orders. I have the hardest time finding doll sized buttons and cute little add ons that complete the outfit. I sew for the salvation army so I also don’t want to spend a fortune.

I have the hardest time finding traditional doll shoes for Wellie Wisher and Glitter Girl dolls. I would love to see more patterns of shoes for them on this website, especially for traditional and historical shoes. You sell the sweetest clothing patterns for them; but I don’t like how they look with the plastic shoes that come with this size dolls. The styles just don’t go together naturally. I’d also love if the 18 inch shoe patterns that you already sell could be resized to truly fit the smaller WW and GG dolls. I’d surely be interested in buying those patterns.

Finding true doll scale fabrics and notions is always a bit of a challenge and I always keep my eyes open. I’ve had good luck finding high quality mini cotton prints on Etsy and fatquartershop, little buttons at Hobby Lobby, tiny rickrack at antiques malls, and I’ve gotten great remnants from older family members. Sometimes too I’ll run across a garment on the clearance rack for cheap that I can repurpose. And I always evaluate clothes before I donate them — they might have buttons that be saved or some detail that is fun!
