We started our shop, My Dressed-Up Doll, last fall. We are three sisters from a family of 10, and we are all in our 20s. Since we travel full-time singing and ministering in churches across the country, we needed a small, part-time "traveling" job. Since those kind of jobs are far and few between, we decided to start our Etsy shop. We like to make "pretty" outfits, mostly dresses, for dolls; we have seen a lot of other styles but noticed that there was a lack of fancy, pretty clothing for dolls. We love choosing color combinations and creating new outfits including the perfect hair accessory or purse. We sew many other things too, including dresses for ourselves or other projects like purses, wall hangings, scarves, etc. Needless to say, we spend a lot of time at Joanns. We have one American Girl doll, Kirsten, and since she is a historical doll, she has the traditional hair that can be a pain to keep up :-)
Here's a little more about us . . . we are from Toledo, OH, but since we travel all the time we are not there very often. We travel throughout the U.S. - from Maine to Florida to Tennessee to Arizona to everywhere in between :-) Dad is an evangelist and we all sing together - and play instruments. We all play piano, plus each of us play a couple more instruments including guitar, banjo, violin, mandolin, ukelele, harmonica, and others. Our big bus is a huge attraction since it is the biggest one that has been made - it's 60 feet long and bends in the middle. Since there are 9 of us living in it (one daughter is married and a missionary to the Middle East), we knew we needed something big enough to be comfortable.
And some pictures!
This is their bus- very VERY big!
