Christmas Sweaters

On Flickr a few days ago, someone posted pictures of some Christmas ornaments from Michael's that would make the perfect doll sweaters.  I went out this weekend and bought a few.  It took me awhile to find them because they weren't with the rest of the ornaments.  They retail for $5.99, but they were on sale for 50% off.

I bought this set specifically for Rod and Danielle.


I think I will use this set for one of the teenage daughters and the mom.  Possibly Christina and Cassandra.



Rod threw on his Santa hat at the last minute and I snapped the shot,

By the way, I added initial pillows to my Etsy store.  You pick the initial and chose between the colors black or red.

    1. Hi Ms. Leo! So glad to see you again. I had to look high and low to find them at my Michael's. They were on at the end of an aisle in a separate box display without any other ornaments around. I saw them just as I was about to give up and leave the store.

  4. These "ugly Christmas sweaters" are nice. Did you leave some for anyone else, Vanessa?

    1. DBG - I saw pictures of some truly "ugly" ones, that were adorable, but my Michael's didn't have them. They had snowmen, dogs, and reindeer etc. Take a look here. https://www.flickr.com/photos/lauren-4/15550207230/

      My Michael's had plenty. Probably because no one could find them in their hidden location. I know it looks like I bought them all. Felt like that, too.

    2. Vanessa,

      What is the measurement of the sweaters from neck to hemline and from arm to arm?

    1. Karoliina - They fit much better than I thought they would. I may shrink a few so the kids can have sweaters, too.

  14. Okay, once again, you are enabling me. :-) I planned to stay in this Veteran's Day (day off) and not do the shopping that I so desperately wanted to do. Now, I HAVE to make a trip to Michael's and pick up a few of these. Thanks Vanessa! Lol!

    1. Georgia Girl - At least I posted them quickly so maybe you can get them at the Veteran's Day 50% off price tag. Beats paying $6. Good luck!

  18. You are bringing an atmosphere of Christmas with your post! I'm not celebrating it, but I simply love all of decorations,Christmas Tree,lights, gifts and music.
    Those little sweaters are so cute! have seen similar but I though it will be too small for Barbie so didn't buy, my bad. Rod and Danielle look great in matching clothes!

  19. I was out of town when I read this post and ran to the nearest Michael's I could find. You are so right about finding them. I walked passed them three times before I finally saw them. The sales people must have thought I was a crazy lady just wandering through the store over and over again. I bought three as I still call myself making my own clothes.

    This was a great tip. I keep seeing these lovely Christmas scenes, making me want to do one. So these can go into a scene. Thank you!

    1. Janainah Frye - I'm so glad you stayed the course to find those sweaters. I don't know why they have them in such odd places. They would probably be close to sold out if they had them in a better place. Hope you are able to do a little Christmas scene.
