Mix & Match and Hand Laundry

By mixing and matching the outfits and accessories you can create many different outfits.

Hand-washing is usually the best way to launder crocheted doll outfits. A little soap (hand soap or dish soap) in the sink, swishing around, rinse well and lay flat to dry. Lay the crocheted clothes flat to dry as putting them in a drier could cause the clothes to lose their shape, shrink, or fall apart.
Have fun!
