My dolls and their dollies

After my most popular Pinterest pin of all time has been repinned almost 800 times since I first pinned it, I finally got around to making miniature Krispy Kreme doughnuts and coffee out of polymer clay for my girls' dolls.


This original set is too small for the 18-inch dolls, so I scaled it up to make it suitable for them.





I have since also made the girls a larger version of this apple pie, and started a Pinterest board with other ideas for polymer clay foods.

Speaking of the girls and their dolls, I made all 6 of them matching nightgowns/PJs. In fact, I made myself a nightgown of the same fabric to match them all, but I'll spare you a photo of that. :)


Typical Becky... I just noticed that Annie's doll is holding the apple pie I mentioned above.


Another typical Becky ;)


Personally, I find it crucial to my sanity to have a creative outlet that I can work on in little bouts here and there every day. When it doubles as something fun, productive, or practical - so much the better!

  1. YES it IS essential. I've just bought a book about making lace. I'm totally out of my depth but I need a new outlet.

    Happy 2015!!

    Also, did you get that coal delivery? I just can't believe they raised so much money...so shallow, pointless.... and utterly typical!

  2. how sweet that you do this for you girls! I worked so hard to purchase an American girl doll of my own when I was young, and I will never forget the day I came home from school to find that my mom had been sewing clothes for my doll all day! I still have all the outfits and the doll ready for my daughter to use (although she is still a baby right now).

  4. How Cute! I really hope the Lord blesses us with another little girl to play dolls with;so far we have 5 boys and 1 girl =). I just love your family and we are praying for you guys to fight off all those fiery darts of the devil that have been coming your way with your husbands biblical preaching on the sodomites!

  7. The girls are adorable with their babies. I love love loved it when my daughter was still really into her American Girl dolls. I don't know who had more fun, my daughter or me. She also had matching nightgowns with her dolls and a few other matching outfits. It was so much fun to create things for the dolls. I wasn't very successful with polymer clay, but I did find a printable page that showed how to make canned and boxed food. I also made a TV, DVD player and little DVD cases out of craft foam. My friend and I would look for AG treasures at thrift stores and garage sales. Old jewelry boxes make excellent AG doll dressers. At the AGplaythings website they have scanned copies of all of the old historical AG patterns. I made Samantha's, Addy's and Kristin's nightgowns. My daughter has saved her Addy doll, her first AG doll and the doll she got at AG in LA. Have fun creating! Can't wait to see what you make next. ~ Traci

  9. You are such a good mom! I only have two kids at home, who I homeschool, and I rarely have time to craft (solo anyway ;). Do you only craft/sew when the kids are sleeping? Also, where did you purchase the small tin for the pie and what size was it? And by the way, I LOVE the shelf above the window with the games on it! I'm going to steal that idea :)
