I got a request to make more accessories, so here are two new designs I came up with: Barbie Backpack and Berry-Stitched Shrug. Since it also fits other fashion dolls, my Makies doll will be modeling the individual pieces for the tutorial. The accessories are also the right size for other 10-12" fashion dolls.
