One of our long time readers, Elizabeth, the same Elizabeth that sent us Ellowyne doll pictures showing the dolls wearing American Girl doll clothes and the Plaid to Meet you Ellowyne with the different wigs has come up with the COOLEST thing I have seen in a long time – printable doll clothes.

Adapting doll clothes to fit dolls they weren’t intended for was part of good experience before making these outfits. So was my experience in sewing. Hemming and getting darts just right is fairly difficult on the doll scale and I like being able to quickly and easily turn out dresses that would be very complicated to make with with sewing.

And now for more of the printed doll clothes in a photo story about being thankful. Although Thanksgiving has come and gone I thought I would like to list a few of the many things that I am very thankful for all year round.

I’m thankful I don’t have to churn my own butter. And I’m really thankful I don’t have to get up very early every morning to milk a cow…

I’m extremely thankful for indoor plumbing. It is definitely one of the most wonderful inventions in the world! One can have a nice hot bath without having to fill up a bucket of water from a well, haul it inside, heat it up on a wood stove, then pour it into a washtub.

I’m thankful I can listen to recorded music when it isn’t practical to hear it live. I’m also thankful for cute little dollhouse settings like this one.

I’m thankful for the great strides made in trasportation. From the horse, to the carriage, to the steam train, to the automobile, to the rocket boots… Wait, skip that last one. It is incredible the amount of inventions from just the last hundred and twenty years that make life easier for people. And it is also really cool the amount of inventions that have been dreamed up which aren’t quite practical yet but may be in the future.

I’m thankful for good books. Through books you can travel the world and meet many different and interesting people, both real and imaginary.

I’m thankful that I don’t have to spin the thread to weave the fabric to make my clothes with.

I’m very thankful for my doll collection. There are so many different types of dolls to collect and the doll companies keep coming up with lovely new ones!

I’m also really thankful for color printers and computers. With the exception of the dress the little rag doll is wearing in the first picture I designed all the outfits worn by dolls in these pictures on my computer, printed them on regular printer paper, cut them out, folded them and fitted them on the dolls, and used tape to attach the pieces together to make the dresses. I love that I don’t have sew to make my dolls new clothes!

Most importantly, I’m thankful for my wonderful family. I’d like to thank my Dad who gave me the studio lighting setup to take these pictures with, and my Mom who let me use pieces from her collection of dollhouses and miniatures in these pictures.
