I was thrilled when my friend Erin of Avery Lane Sewing asked me to review her latest book Me & My 18″ Doll, a fabulous book filled with matching projects for girls and their dolls.
The book is filled with more than 20 projects with clear and beautifully illustrated instructions. You will find clothes for the girls in multiple sizes and their identical doll outfits,
fun accessories such as headbands and these adorable bags any little girl would love!
One of my favorites is the matching suitcases… the large size would also make a perfect project bag for any sewist/quilter!
You’ll love the two darling girl and doll quilts, plus much, much more.
Of course I had to make at least one of the projects in the book, and even though it was a hard choice, the Patchwork Pinafore just called my name!
I used Joy, my latest Christmas fabric collection, to make the pinafore for Joy, my 18″ doll. It was so easy and fun and I really enjoyed Erin’s method for sewing the bodice and belt loops.

My latest sewing project is making shopping bags out of plastic feed bags my friends get their chicken’s food in.
My last project was making a wallet. It turned out so well that I would like to do it again with cork.
My favorite sewing project is making cobbler aprons. They’re great for hostess, shower, birthday, or Christmas gifts. I usually include a recipe and a some sort of a baking pan relating to the recipe…pizza recipe and pizza pan.
My non quilty project is making mittens and hats for a local charity.
My nearly 5 yo granddaughter will be getting an 18-inch doll for Christmas this year and this book looks PERFECT for making them matching matching clothes. I used to make clothes for my daughter and her Cabbage Patch Doll in the ‘80s and she loved it. I can’t wait to continue the tradition with my granddaughter. 😀👍❤️❤️❤️❤️
I like to make pillowcases for the grandchildren.
This is a wonderful book. Besides making quilts I enjoy making doll clothes and dresses for my granddaughter. Thanks for the giveaway.
I don’t do any quilting, but I love making matching outfits for my niece and her 18″ doll!
Besides making quilts, I’m hooked on making doll clothes. In fact, it was Erin’s Doll Dress Boutique book that got me into sewing doll clothes. I’d never had the confidence to tackle garments of any kind until I got Erin’s book. Now I even tackle dresses for myself. Can’t seem to stop thinking of my next doll outfit!
I enjoy sewing almost anything. Smaller quilts is my favorite. I also enjoy teaching my granddaughter to sew. Last year I made her a cloth 18″ doll, leather boots, n whole 1800’s dress outfit, slip, bloomers, apron, n all. I even learned how to sew on the doll hair. It all took time n my patience, but well worth it in the end.
