Doll Accessories

For my granddaughter's 1st birthday, I got them their 1st baby doll.  
For their 2nd birthday gift, I made them doll clothes, a doll quilt (using scraps from the baby blankets I made for them when they were born) & a matching doll pillow too. Every doll needs a pillow to rest their tired heads on.
Isn't that what every two year old needs? 
The case for the doll clothes originally said Yui.  I unpicked part of the name & turned the monogram into Ella.  A Pottery Barn reject on sale for $2.00!  
Does anyone know someone with the name of Yui?
Most of these doll clothes were upcycled from baby clothes.

This yellow smocked doll dress was originally one of my summer shirts .
I should have taken photos of the clothes on the doll but I made all these clothes plus one more suitcase full right before I gave the doll to my #2 granddaughter.  One doll is across the United States & one is in Israel.  Maybe their kind, thoughtful mothers will take photos of my darlings playing will their dolls....MAYBE?

xoxo Grandma
