Welcome to Erin Hentzel’s Blog Tour for her 4th pattern book: Me & My 18″ Doll, featuring matching outfits, accessories & quilt patterns not only for those lucky young ladies (sizes 6 – 12) in your life, but matching ones for their 18-inch dolls in both Book and eBook versions.
I discovered Erin and her amazing patterns about a year ago through her Blog Tour for Doll Dress Boutique. Previous books include Sew in Style and Doll Days and all are available through her website, through her publisher @ C & T Publishing, as well as Amazon, Joann’s and many book sellers.
Erin included so many cute designs, it was a hard decision what to sew first from this new book, but I’m thrilled to share my 18-inch doll-size versions of her Lacy Top, gathered Skirt (featured on book cover) and Little Handbag today. I first made the darling double-layered twirl skirt with its sweet sash, sewn in a favorite Gertie bow fabric I’d been hoarding for something special! I was thrilled when I found bow trim for Erin’s princess-seamed View A top & decided to sew it to match my skirt. Then for Lea’s bag, I used matching trim as an accent rather than a ribbon bow (see Erin’s versions below).
