Mix and Match – Pink Swirl Capsule Wardrobe for Dolls

Mix and Match Oh Sew Kat! Sewing Patterns to Make an 18″ Capsule Wardrobe

It’s quick, easy, and a lot of fun to make your 18 inch American Girl doll some cute mix and match separates with Oh Sew Kat! patterns. Each pattern (sold individually or in value bundles in my Etsy Shop) offer full sized, computer drawn pattern pieces that you print on your home computer, along with full color photos and directions for every step.

I love this pink swirly fabric with the bright pops of hot pink. It reminds me of cotton candy!! I like to usually choose a single print, then choose some solids to add pieces to the collection. For this set I chose two tops (Reversible Popsicle Top and School Bell Blouse) and two bottoms (Sandbox Shorts and Sixth Grade Skirt). You can mix and match all the pieces for lots of outfits for multiple seasons.

The Sandbox Shorts have real working pockets. I used the print fabric for the fun, patch pockets, but you can also use THIS TUTORIAL to put the pockets on the inside of the shorts. The shorts look cute with either the print or the solid side of the reversible Popsicle Top.

Best Goal Planning System Ever: New PowerSheets for 2022

2022PowerSheets are here!!! Let me step aside from 18 inch doll patterns for a minute to share with you a product I discovered a few years back and still truly use and love! If you purchase PowerSheets by clicking my links in this post, I will receive a very small compensation at no cost to you. Feel free to share this post with others that might be inspired.

2022 PowerSheets go are available starting October 6th, 2022.

The 2022 Power Sheets Goal Planners are now available. Choose from 5 different Covers!

This year is my 5th year (in a row!) of using this intentional goal planner. Let me be clear- this is not a daily planner. I have a separate bullet journal system I’m currently using to track my schedules, appointments and my to do lists. The Power Sheets system gives you a way to look at each month, each quarter, each year and keep what’s most important to you front and center, or help you let go of something that might no longer matter in order to focus on another. I ten out of ten recommend the PowerSheets!

There are pretty pages of prep work to help you reflect and find what matters most to you right now (honestly, in any season of life) and what you can do to cultivate that which resonates with you the most. I used this system when my kids had busy schedules and I still use it now that they are gone and we are stuck closer to home. What kind of goals do I set? Goals to declutter my home, goals to do a monthly day trip or, to make dinner plans with friends; goals to send cards and packages for birthdays, goals to set up my blog post calendar and pattern/sample sewing, even home improvement goals.

My favorite part of the system is the monthly tending list. After writing down the monthly priorities, stresses, and ideas, you choose which ones to focus on each month and sort them into monthly, weekly, and daily lists for the month ahead. I then decorate this page with stickers or my rubber stamps, and put it in my daily planner. Every morning, I check it along with my plans, to remind myself of both big and little things I’m working towards. At the end of the month, I tape it back in place in my PowerSheets.

There are bundles, and journals, stickers, and goal cards, calendars and pouches. Which color will you choose? Power Sheets are also a great gift for students, for graduates, for brides! I’ve often chosen the teal colorway (they matched my business logo!) but this year I went for the bold and bright blooms floral. I love the gold foil accents on the cover. The book itself is super study and very high quality, includes a sticker page and sturdy gold coil binding. You can take the first step to making 2022 your best year ever!!

I ten out of ten recommend the PowerSheets!

There are pretty pages of prep work to help you reflect and find what matters most to you right now (any season of life) and what you can do to cultivate that. It sounds like a big job, but I do a few pages at a time over a week or so and if I can’t answer one question, I come back to it. I used this system when my kids had busy schedules and I still use it now when we are stuck closer to home. What kind of goals do I set? Goals to declutter my home, goals to do a monthly day trip or (used to) make dinner plans with friends, goals to send cards and packages for birthdays, goals to set up my blog post calendar and pattern/sample sewing, even home improvement goals.

I gave my niece a set when she graduated from college. So far, I’ve always chosen the teal colorway (they matched my business logo!) but this year I went for the bold and bright citrus floral. I love the gold foil accents on the cover. The book itself is super study and very high quality. You won’t be disappointed, I promise!
