Today, my little American Girl Doll lover came up with another idea for using an old sock to create doll clothes. Last month, she made this cute AG doll outfit from an old red soccer sock. That one made a perfect Christmas outfit, but she wanted to make some everyday clothes too. For the Christmas outfit, she cut the very tip of the toe off to make a beret, and for this outfit, she used a bigger piece of the toe area to make a beanie for her doll.
She wanted to add some embellishments to the beanie, and at first we thought about gluing some mini pom poms to the hat. But, because I wanted to keep this as kid friendly as possible, we searched the craft stash and found some round foam stickers in various colors.
She settled on a mix of white and green stickers, and then she just popped them out and stuck them onto the hat in a random pattern.
You can see how the edge is rough, but just roll it up, and it looks the same as a knit hat with a band across the bottom. One of my teens has a similar hat, except hers doesn't have polka dots. The little Diva was going for a cuter vibe! That's all there is too it--isn't it easy? The stickers stay on, but if she wants to change the look, she can also peel them off and start over.
If you have girls or granddaughters who have American Girl dolls, or any dolls this size, they will probably love creating their own easy doll outfits.
Thanks for visiting me today, and viewing the latest project. If you try this one, I'd love to hear what you think. Take care, and have an awesome day!

How do you keep the sock from unraveling at the cut line ?
I never had a problem with the sock unraveling. It does curl up a little at the bottom, though.
