When my girls were little, Cabbage Patch Kids were the big fad. Their Grandma gave them each a new baby for Christmas. I think it was 1986. The girls have long since moved out, and my younger girl has a little girl herself now. I finally got motivated to go up into the attic and dig out the old dollys. I didn't really think Christmas would be taking up much of my time, since nobody is coming to my house, and I am not going anywhere. But, ever since I decided to send the doll down to my granddaughter, I have been very busy. I cleaned her up, and washed her clothes, then I decided she needed more clothes. I started sewing a few outfits from scratch, but then I spotted some cute baby clothes at a local thrift shop. I made a few alterations, and now I have a whole wardrobe for the baby.

That's true. They should last a long time, considering what great shape the doll is still in. I was thinking while making the clothes how babies only wear their tiny clothes for a few weeks. Dolls can wear the same clothes for as long as they last.
