My three granddaughters are obsessed with sleepwear—for their dolls, that is. Every time they leave after visiting us, they tuck their dolls (that wait at our house for them to visit again) in for the night. A variety of sleepwear and various blankets, quilts, and other bedding is very popular, since their dolls nap the entire time the granddaughters are away!
This machine embroidery design set was inspired by our girls and the newest American Girl® doll, Kira Bailey™, who is spending the summer at an animal sanctuary in Australia, and thus the koala focus. The sleepy koala design is adorable in both of the filled and the appliqué versions, and is especially cute adorning the square and diamond-shaped quilt blocks or a pillow (note: the square quilt block makes a perfect pillow!) The color scheme works well with almost any color I tried (note the pink, blue, and purple, which my girls love!) All five koala designs are included in this set and all but the diamond shaped quilt block fit the 4x4 hoop. The diamond block fits the 5x7 hoop.
The five machine embroidery designs in this set are digitized to embellish the Koala Dreams Nightshirt by FROG Princess Fashions sewing pattern, but can be used for a variety of other purposes, as well. You might want to decorate a sleeping bag, backpack, travel bag, or garment organizer with these. They are also suitable adorning other clothing such as aprons, jacket backs, pants legs, and so on. Their small size leaves a world of opportunity for you to be creative!
