Yes, it's a very little bag. Note the size compared to the clothespin:
But it's fully lined!
Wouldn't you just love a bag like that? I hope Courtney and Marie Grace do! (It might not go too well with the outfits she has right now, but I don't think Courtney will mind. And I hope to correct that situation soon, perhaps with a nice pants and top or something. ;) )
Sooo... what does an AG doll put in a brand new bag? I'm sure Courtney will think of something. She loves tiny things, and she has plenty of them. However, I thought a wallet would be in order. A very tiny wallet, of course! One like this:
It's even made of laminated fabric! (Bet you never thought I'd find such a tiny use for those scraps, huh Jess?) And it sports a vintage button from my grandma's stash:
Well, what's a wallet without money? An empty wallet. No fun. It needs money! Like this:
Yes, "real" money! LOTS of money!
Did you notice that last bill?! Here's a closer look:
Woohoo! Lots of money, indeed!! Here's how I printed it. Front sides and back sides, perfectly lined up and printed on one sheet of paper:
Pretty cool, huh? Don't you wish you could make money like that? Hmm... does it make me a counterfeiter if I print it that small? I hope not! ;)
I can't take credit for any of the above except the sewing. The fabrics, of course, are by none other than Jessica Jones herself. The bag and wallet patterns, plus the money file, come from DollClothesPatterns.net. You have to jump through a couple of hoops to get them, like sign up for their newsletter and 'Like' them on Facebook, but I was happy to do so. There are other little free projects on the site, some sewing tips and tricks, plus there are some really awesome patterns that you can purchase. What a fun and useful site for doll lovers (or for grandmothers who love to sew for their granddaughters' dolls)!
I can't wait to see Courtney's reaction this afternoon!! :)
