Announcement   Welcome to AmericanPlanet! Beautiful handcrafted doll clothing from all up-cycled fabrics for 18 inch dolls. Proudly made In America. ⭐️Follow me on Instagram @americanplanet for seasonal discounts and coupons.

American Planet ships to USA & CANADA.

Strong finished seams, soft elastic bands, firmly stitched snaps, and gentle velcro closures allow for easy, creative play. Fabrics are my true passion! The selection of a textile, how the colors play in the light, how the material feels on the skin, is as important as the patterns I select. Fine clothing tells a story. I search through fabric bins rescuing remnants, and spend leisurely mornings visiting local charitable thrift shops, selecting garments with truly unique fabrics ready to be up-cycled into that one of a kind fashion statement for that very special doll. Repurposed fabrics and remnants are carefully laundered and inspected for quality.

American Planet items are made with love and respect for the earth, and for the children who will enjoy them. I am a proud Liberty Jane Partner, using Pixie Faire patterns. I believe in giving back. $5 from every listing sold is donated to charity.

Thank you for visiting American Planet. Hug a Doll. Love the Earth.

THANK YOU!! This beautiful outfit has to be my favorite American Planet item I have ever gotten from you. The pink flowers on this skirt and the material on both the top & skirt are just gorgeous. I honestly wish I could have an outfit exactly like it for me. Your talent will never cease to amaze me! 🌸

About

Fabric & Fibro

I started my shop when I became an empty nester and was looking for a new way to express myself creatively. I have been living with fibromyalgia for years, which presents a pain & time management challenge. Some days are simply easier than others. Etsy was the answer! I would open my shop and create on my "good days"! I love browsing through thrift shops, searching for unique fabrics and trims, which I re-imagine into new clothing. That is a major component in my process when creating outfits for dolls. I believe when people donate their clothing, the fabric is infused with the good karma of the giver. Fabrics that have been enjoyed by others tell a story, and have a personality of their own. For example, gently loved textiles show how colors and textures respond to repeated wear and washing. Upcycled materials are incredibly satisfying to work with. In my spare time I volunteer in my community, and I believe in giving back whenever possible. I love to contribute to charities, donating a portion of sales made at craft shows. In honor of that tradition, one dollar of every Etsy listing sold will be donated to a worthy cause. Thanks for sharing this adventure with me!! ❤ Char

Welcome to America Planet! This shop is a special place where friends of the 18 inch Doll (such as "American Girl") and fans of up-cycling are always welcome to visit.

I passionately believe in the "3 Rs"...recycle, repurpose, re-imagine! I also believe in giving back. One dollar (or more) from each item purchased will be donated to charity. I pride myself in offering products that are both reasonably priced and beautifully made. Attention to detail is what I strive for. Each listing is unique and special.

I personally sew all garments that are made to fit 18 inch fashion dolls. Clothing and accessories are crafted or embellished by hand with loving care in a smoke free & pet free home. I use safe, quality repurposed fabrics and rescued remnants to create one of a kind fashions. Seams are sturdy, elastic waistbands and soft no-snag velcro closures are perfect for small hands. Zippers and buttons are sewn as firmly as possible. Footwear included with each listing are complimentary.

I am a proud "Liberty Jane" Partner, and often enjoy using "Pixie Faire Patterns" when creating doll fashions. www.pixiefaire.com

American Planet's ensembles have become very popular, because of the quality of the fabrics, construction, and that outfits come as a complete set - including shoes that are gifted to the buyer as my courtesy. If there is ever an individual separate that catches your eye - a cool jacket, a fashion forward top, or a stylish pair of jeans - and you are interested in purchasing that individual item, please let me know! I will do my best to work with you. Special orders are accepted, if I am able to do so. Because items are one-of-a-kind, made from up-cycled materials, I may not be able to recreate a piece exactly. I am not in affiliation with any Doll or Toy companies.

Please use good parental judgement and supervise any children that are playing with any American Planet clothing and/or accessories. Small items (i.e. buttons, zippers, shoes, and/or clothing/shoe embellishments) may include small parts, and are not intended for age 3 and under. American Planet fashions are suitable for children ages 9-12.

The clothing created by AMERICAN PLANET for your 18 inch American Girl doll is proudly MADE IN AMERICA!
