Why buy it when you can make it? American Girl doll crafts are a great way to make accessories and clothing for a fraction of what American Girl charges.

American Girl Dolls are expensive to be sure, but I have found that they hold up much better to play than their less expensive counterparts. So I was willing to pay the cost for the dolls. However, I was shocked at how pricey the accessories and furniture were! Since I am crafty, I decided that we would make them instead of buying them.

I have discovered that with a little creativity and effort, you can make a ton of wonderful crafts for your 18 inch Dolls at a fraction of the cost. My daughters and I love crafting together so making something for their dolls is the perfect way to spend an afternoon.

Whether you enjoy sewing, crochet, plastic canvas, or wood crafts, there are all sorts of American Girl doll crafts to make for that special little 18 inch doll fan in your life to enjoy. Happy crafting!
