Well, My daughter received an American Girl (type) doll for Christmas this year and of course the requests started pretty early in the day on Christmas. My Daughter is in gymnastics right now and she wanted her doll to be able to do some of the fun things that she does, she quickly requested a balance beam and a set of bars for her doll. Since the balance beam was a bit faster and easier I went with it first.
The other starter project that we decided on was a simple swing to have for two of her dolls while she is swinging. Sophia helped me to drill out the holes once I got them marked then we just strung it up with some simple twine. The black strap is a piece of elastic that is ran through 4 holes in the board to act as a seatbelt. It works pretty well as long as the dolls stay balanced. I am sure we will make a different one in the future.
These are the first of many projects to come. Sophia has many ideas as do I, she is also going to be taking a sewing class beginning next week as part of her Christmas gifts, the teacher of the class is very interested in the possibility of each of the girls building a bed for their dolls and then making all of the blankets and such in class. It sounds as if I am going to be a large part of making the bed. :)
I am looking forward to spending the shop time with my daughter. Thanks all for looking.
