This listing is for 2 sewing patterns, The American Girls Sleepover Set and The Mini Messenger, purse for doll and girl.


Need a great birthday gift for your daughter's friend. How about a sleepover set for her 18" doll. This PDF contains patterns with color photos that illustrate the steps to make each of the items in the pattern. Pattern also includes the instructions for making a sleeping bag, pillow case, the pillow that goes into the case, pajama pants, and recently added, a tank top with a ruffle accent. This is a super quick, simple project. Your daughter could even help you make it.

Final sizes are:
Pants - 7" from waist to hem
Pillow - 5"x8"
Pillowcase - 6"x10"
Sleeping Bag - 11"x15.5"

Materials required:
Pants - 2 different fabrics, small pieces of each and a 9" long piece of 1/4" wide elastic
Shirt - 2 different fabrics, small pieces of each and a little velcro for closing the back.
Pillow - white muslin or other white fabric, fiberfil or other stuffing
Pillowcase - a couple of fat quarters will be more than enough
Sleeping bag - 1/2 yard of fabric for exterior, 1/4 yard of fabric for exterior contrast, 1/2 yard of fabric for lining and a 24"x17.5" piece of quilt batting.

You will have fabric left over.

The Mini Messenger


So, we were planning a family vacation to northern Michigan, including a day trip to Mackinac Island where there are many quaint shops for buying trinkets and souvenirs when I realized that the girls would be carrying their own shopping money with them. I don't know about you, but carrying pocket money for four girls and keeping track of what belongs to whom is not my favorite thing to do. So, I created this Mini Messenger for them. It's the perfect size for a little wallet and some lip gloss and maybe an iPod or whatever a tween girl needs. It slings over the shoulder so you don't have to worry about them setting it down somewhere. They were a hit.

Instructions for the applique are not included. No template included.

Finished size of the bag:
Girl sized: 5.5"w x 7"t with strap 27" from shoulder to bag
Doll sized: 2.5"w x 3.5"t with strap 14" from shoulder to bag

Materials needed:
1 fat quarter of outer fabric
1 fat quarter of lining fabric
1 fat quarter of plain flannel (I like to use flannel instead of interfacing for smaller projects, it's much softer)
velcro - 1" length of 3/4" wide
1 1"x43" piece of outer fabric for strap (less for the doll bag)
matching thread

This PDF pattern is an instant download. You'll receive instructions right after you pay. Pretty cool, huh?

Love it . I revised it just slightly by lining the top and used buttons for the back. Great pattern very self explanatory easy to use pieces. Thanks.
