30 Things to Make for an American Girl Doll - Free Patterns & Tutorials

Attention all American Girl doll lovers! Look no further, because I have a stash of American Girl doll ideas for you right here at your very finger tips.

I've gathered 30 posts together that show you things that you can make for American Girl dolls into one post as an easy reference.  If you enjoy free patterns and tutorials, then this should be a fun post for you.  All these posts show you how to make things for your child, grandchild, or your doll(s) because let's face it, I know a lot of you out there collect dolls.  

Last month, I finally purchased my own American Girl doll -- before that I was just borrowing my grown daughters who have left them at home. Maybe you've noticed that cute blond doll with a few freckles across her cheeks?  Yup, she's mine - at least until I give it away to a granddaughter one day.  I have visions of showing her my huge box of clothes and accessories and letting her choose what she wants for her doll as her gift.
