Very cute!Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.
If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.
Use it up, Wear it out,
Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown
A clean house is a sign of a wasted life. ~unknown

~That's very nice! What kind of closures did you use? Brings back memories of making clothes for my dolls from old sheets and clothing scraps. Wow I made a lot of clothes back then! I always made clothes with ties or buttons for closure since they were the easiest and most abundant materials in the used clothes I was working with. What a thrill when I discovered how to make elastic casings!
I've only made a few clothing items for my older daughter's toys, and not for dolls. Neither of my girls play with dolls. I've made some clothing items for a penguin and some Yoshis though. Dolls are much more fun to sew for though. I wouldn't mind having an American girl doll of my own to sew for. Maybe someday. ~

It literally was scraps, scissors,and 4 cuts of those scraps.
was it you that said your DD liked to cut up her clothes and like you do ( cut up in the good way) She might like a doll to just make clothes for much like a mannequin.
Little Miss has been making her doll clothes for about 10 years now. She started when she was three.
Her first was cutting off the legs of her brother's out grown jeans ( with elastic at the cuff) I showed her how to sew a seam and she was off. Her dolls have many jean skirts varied lengths from every time her brother out grew a pair. Sweats would have made cute skirts too, but her brother did not wear those.
As for wanting an american girl doll of your own. Keep and eye out at thrift stores.
Little Miss kept an eye out and found one for less that $16.
Here is the post ( with pictures)
She also bought the one that Aldi's sold at Christmas she bought it at the after Christmas Clearance for $5.
