I love when I find ugly Christmas sweaters.  They totally get me in the holiday spirit!

So, I decided to make some ugly sweaters for some of my Blythe dolls this season.






I had some felt and lots of sequins, so I just went for it and figured out a simple pattern with a snap in the back.  Since it's still warm here, I kept them short sleeved : )  I think the girls like them.






Thanks for looking!

I will be quite honest here {because I usually am, anyway}. When I first saw this type of doll, I was like "yucky...what the heh?". But the more I see of them, the cuter they get. I guess I just needed to get used to them. Your sweaters are really cute. And very festive for Christmas. The eyeballs still have me a little bit shaken up, but I think I am getting over that, too. Sometimes things take time for me.  Cheesy I like them. The details are really adorable.

Nice job!  I think they are too cute to be ugly Christmas sweaters!  What a great idea, though...

Thanks everyone!

Stillatthetop--- it's funny, because I hated dolls when I was little. My mom used to get me these porcelain dolls and I thought they were a little spooky... Now I have more dolls than I ever thought. Perhaps I'm reverting to my "lost" childhood..
