Christmas Sweater Ornaments From Target

Sweater, shirt, and hat ornaments from Target
This year Target is offering the above sweater, shirt, and hat ornaments for $3 each.  These were the only styles the Target nearest me had, but I have seen photos of other styles as well.

The hangers can be used as hangers for Barbie-size clothing or refashioned into jewelry.  The gold and silvertone hangers are made of soft wire.  The black hanger is firmer.
The hangers were easily removed by snipping away a loose stitch inside the sweaters and shirt.  Before snipping it off the top of the hat, a faux suede string created the ornament hook.  The same type string was attached to the hook of the black hanger.  I saved the hangers and even the string to use later.

The sweaters, shirt, and hat were tried on a Tall and Curvy Barbie and are a nice fit.  Classic Cool (Caleb Craig) can wear the shirt but the sweaters are too small for him.  The flannel hat is a little large for all.  It will probably fit the head of a 16-inch doll much better.  Everything is modeled below:

I removed the hot glue that once held the flannel shirt permanently closed.  Above left, Emoji Fun Curvy Barbie wears the shirt over her Black Dolls Matter T-shirt.  Above right, she added the matching hat.

Caleb tried the shirt on for size, which he keeps closed with double-sided tape; it fits well.  He exchanged his Chuck Taylors (worn in the photo on the left) for a pair of black boots (worn in the photo on the right).

Fab Fringe (needs a name), Nina (Music Barbie), and Rainbow (Glam Boho) were eager to model the sweaters.  I was surprised that Rainbow could wears the ivory leggings, which were made to fit more slender Barbies, Fashion Royalty, and Momoko.  Stretch fabric is so forgiving!

Nina wears the green/white/gray Target sweater with a pair of gray leggings and black boots.  She presents her new love interest, Caleb, with an early wrapped Christmas present.  He seemed a little disinterested at first but eventually warmed up to her.

After Caleb claimed the flannel shirt, Emoji Fun felt left out.  Since the other three Target sweaters were spoken for, she found a sweater from Michaels that was purchased a couple of years ago.   The opportunity to wear a sweater and one with a red-nosed reindeer motif cheered her up.

Looking festive and dressed for Christmas, they all posed for one final photo.

This year Michaels store has a nice assortment of ornaments fashioned in the style of winter coats, vests, and sweater hats that playscale dolls can wear.  These are only sold in Michaels stores, not online.  If there is a Michaels near you and you're interested in dressing playscale dolls in wintry fashions, see what your Michaels has in stock and don't forget to visit Target to check out their sweater ornaments.

  1. I purchased a couple of the Target sweater ornaments. They fit the 1:6 ladies well. I'm planning an ugly Christmas sweater themed photo shoot, though truthfully these sweaters are quite cute. Thanks for the tip about Michael's.

    1. I look forward to seeing your Christmas sweater photo shoot, Jewell. You're right, there's nothing ugly about these sweaters.

      I still haven't received the ones I wrote about ordering last week. Maybe they will be here before this week ends.

    1. Thank you, GG! Will you do a blog post of your people modeling the Michaels ornaments? I doubt that I will get there before they sell out.

    2. Ms. Leo,

      The ones shown in the first picture of this post are Target ornaments. The one with the reindeer on front that Emoji Fun Barbie wears was purchased from Michaels a couple of years ago.
