I have done other non-doll related projects such as making a flower girl dress for my wedding, and pillows and pillowcases for my sons, but my love of dolls always brings me back to doll clothing. My current collection of dolls include dolls from American Girl Collection, Bitty Baby, Our Generation, Journey Girl, and Springfield Collection.
