Knitting for American Girls

The USO is a privately funded organization. Guild member Barb is collecting American Girl Doll items for a basket for an auction to benefit the Sea-Tac Airport USO, which her son runs. Barb is collecting an American Girl wardrobe (knitting, crochet, sewing) for the well-dressed doll. If you would like to donate an item, please get it to Barb by August 12.

You can find dozens of patterns on Ravelry.
