Pinterest and AG Doll stuff

Gesh...I have spent hours upon hours googling for free directions/tutorials for AG doll bedding and couldn't find any.

Then on Pinterest someone pinned some awesome tutorials From An Igloo, Fun Things to Make and Do.  I am not really good when it says to cut a certain size piece of fabric if I don't have a pattern.  So I used the tutorial on Pillows and made a pattern.  On the pattern I also put a label on it with what it is for and a link back to that blog.

Sorry about the bad pictures, I am in my scrapbook room/office and the lighting is kind of wacky in the afternoon.  I also got a little ahead of my self and should have left on of the smaller sides open to stuff the pillow.  Good thing this is just my sample test pillow.

So if you are looking for great and easy bedding tutorials, check out From An Igloo, Fun Things to Make and Do.

So I wanted to refresh a pair of my black shorts, a pair of my husband's black pants and dye a pair of olive green capri pants and a pair of navy shorts.

I bought a bottle of the black dye this morning and started working on this little project.  I followed the directions from their site exactly.

During the process it looked promising....After the items had been rinsed, washed and dried...well it wasn't as successful as I had hoped.

Black Pants - Before

Black Pants - After (these do look much better)

Black Shorts - Before

Black Shorts - After (they came out good)

Navy Shorts - Before

Navy Shorts - After (they are darker but definitely not black)

Olive Capri pants - Before

Olive Capri Pants - After they are more like charcoal gray and not sure if I have anything that would go with them.
