Quality made 18 inch doll clothes.

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    Welcome to Hole in My Bucket Creations! Home of 18 inch doll clothes, and clothes for a variety of other size dolls.

The name comes from the idea of finding a use for everything. My early designs were created using fabric swatches that are too small for most sewing, but perfect for creating unique outfits for 18" dolls and other must haves.

I love and welcome custom orders. Many items that start out as custom orders are remade and become regular items in my shop. Custom orders help me to understand what items it is that people are searching for.

Be sure to check out my Facebook Page for new items that may have not made it to the shop yet. If you see something that isn't posted in the shop yet feel free to convo me and I can likely make it. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hole-In-My-Bucket/188153204543455

Please also note that most orders are "Made to Order" meaning that "In Stock" is simply an indicator that I have the fabric available for the items listed, but not always made and ready to ship immediately. During normal times, most orders ship within 3 business days.

Thank you! Sherry

Mother of boy sews doll clothes!

If someone had told me thirteen years ago I would have a shop selling doll clothes, I would have said they were nuts.

Approximately 13 years ago, my mom was helping me sew curtains for our basement. I didn't even know how to thread the bobbin. Well, a lot has changed!

You could say that my niece is really the reason that as a mother of a boy, I started making doll clothes. I began to knit her outfits, knit outfits for the school fundraisers and then realized one day that in many cases, sewing a simple skirt took far less time than knitting it. I designed and made her a few sewn outfits that she loved. A friend had told me about Etsy, and I thought why not try selling them.

My slippers seem to be a hit which is very gratifying since they are my design and creations. I try to come up with a unique offering for the holidays that you can’t find in other shops. Easter of 2011 I created the bunny slippers, and it wasn’t much of a stretch to make the puppies or kitties. Then a few years later, the reindeer slipper idea hit me. I did some sketching on paper, made a prototype and they became the newest of the doll slippers.

The Etsy shop has really taking off and has become a sense of pride to know that I’m still able to be active at my son’s school, but help to make a little extra money at the same time for our family.

I welcome special orders. Perhaps you see a dress in the shop done pink, but your special some loves purple. Convo me and I can most likely make the outfit in your favorite color.

Welcome to Hole in My Bucket Creations! I love crafts of any kind, but sewing doll clothes sort of found me you might say. It is a recent passion that began with sewing a birthday present for my niece. I'm always on the lookout for fun fabrics to use that will appeal to both those playing with the dolls and that are fun for me to create with. Some fabrics come directly from the fabric stores, others find me.

I'm always on the lookout for fun creative ways to use the little leftover pieces and other things to create items that aren't necessarily sewn. So check back periodically to see what's new. Or make a special request.

Most items are made to order. If you need something quicker than a standard 2 - 3 day turnaround, convo me BEFORE you purchase and it is possible to do a Priority Shipping upgrade.


Ours is happily a smoke free home!
