Welcome to another Theme Day Thursday at My Cricut Craftroom.

My project was actually inspired by my mom. She sews fabulous 18" doll clothes and sells them in her Etsy store. I was poking around her sewing room the other day and came across a doll pattern for "costumes". There it was staring me right in the face... a 50's poodle skirt "costume"! I knew exactly what I was going to do for today after seeing that:-) I just love the fifties!

I cut the skirt and binding out of pink craft felt. Then using my Gypsy, Circut Expression, and Nifty Fifties cart, I cut the poodle out of stiff black felt. I cut very nicely, even at 2 1/2". I also used a new mat to make sure the felt wouldn't shift. My Gypsy didn't allow me to "hide" the leash part so I carefully trimmed it off . I added Thistle Stickles to the neck and let dry. I glued on the black cording and the felt poodle before I sewed on the binding. Now my doll is ready to Rock N Roll!!
