Our July theme for the Blythe Swap group was Slumber Party. It was a bit of a challenging theme for me, since it’s been many years since I attended one, and there are so many possibilities that no one thing really screams the theme.
My partner ended up being the perfect person to make things for. Each of her five Blythes have a distinct personality, as well as favorite colors, animals, and other helpful things. I found a paperboard suitcase at The Lob and embellished it with scrapbook paper and good ol’ Mod Podge.
I made individual packages for each of Kate’s five girls.
I made up a pattern for some pajamas (now I know how to make shorts!), and one for an overnight bag. I also made some stuffed animals to go with each set.
For Cherry Kim, who likes red and dogs:
For Lizzie Jane, who likes brown and pale yellow and nature:
For Charlotte, who likes pale blue and green:
For James, who likes bright colors:
I couldn’t resist embellishing her pajama top with a googly eye:
And for Annie Mesmer, who likes black and ravens:
I had so much fun putting this package together. And it was also really fun to see what Kate had put together for me!
She used some super neat wrapping paper and included a hilarious and awesome frog card:
So many goodies!
I just adore this fabric. I can’t wait to figure out what I’ll make with it:
This outfit seemed perfect for Dahlia, and it suits her so well:
All in all, a perfect slumber party!
