Knitting for Barbie

Maja got a couple of Barbie dolls for her birthday.... They neeeed clothes (uhh.... sort of... or maybe it's just me wanting to make some...)! I was originally wanting to sew some clothes for them, but I couldn't find any free sewing patterns for Barbie clothes on the net, but there was plenty of knitting patterns. And since I rather like knitting... why not?? I've knittet two dresses. I found the pattern for these on this Swedish site (it has lots of patterns in english as well). There's lots and lots of really nice clothes here. It was kind of hard to choose, but I let Maja help me choose seeing as it is her that will play with them. They are both made with some old knitting wool that I found in my drawer of wool.

This is the first one I made (pattern no 160).

And here is the second (pattern 152).

If anyone knows about a place I can get hold of sewing patterns for Barbie, I would be grateful if you left a wee comment...

Love the clothes! My five-year-old was in here looking over my shoulder and now she's insisting on her own Barbie clothes!
