Addy's Accessories

A couple of years ago I was fortunate enough to find a first-edition Addy doll in the thrift store for less than $3...unfortunately she had only her boots and pink dress, so I set about making her a set of accessories.

The bonnet was pulled from scraps of an old hat; simply hot-glued together. I lined it with some scrap fabric which matches the original pretty well. Actually I think my hat is better because the inside of it is lined and doesn't pick her hair--apparently the one from American Girl isn't lined inside.

She also has a large kerchief (scrap bin fabric), a gourd and a 5 cent piece.

My version of the AG Accessory set...

...and American Girl's version.
