Girl Scout vests for American Girl Dolls

It was Christmas break and I kind of remembered I would be exchanging gifts with a family later in the week, but kind of forgot. The day before I decided I really needed to think about some gifts.

I considered doll clothes, but a lot are pretty involved and whatever I was doing would be times three. Then the idea came to me, I would make little Girl Scout vests in the appropriate colors.

The vests were pretty easy to figure out. I decided making them reversible would be the easiest. Then somehow I ended up with a little extra time. Must have been a napping baby again...

I decided I must also decorate them with badges. I researched how each level vest should look and cut out tiny embellishments. I should state for the record that I cannot draw well at all, but I can cut things out very well. So that is how these little vests came to be. Everything got glued on and off to a new home.
