Ada, Free Shipping, and Pattern Preview

American Girl Doll 61 Free Pattern


Introducing… Ada! 

Ada is the newest My American Girl Doll (MYAG), #61.  She is our long-awaited, carrot top, “true” red head.

I’m in the process of filming a video review for you, which will include a comparison with Saige, American Girl of the Year 2012, and lots and lots of pictures!  Hopefully I will have that ready for you within the week.  You can check out my current library of doll review videos and doll sewing tutorials on the Many Small Friends YouTube channel.



There are FREE SHIPPING offers available this week for both and  Both require a minimum $50 purchase.  This is pretty rare, especially for American Girl, where free shipping  typically requires a $100 minimum purchase.  There are still some nice items in the SALE section (including that Chalet.. which is killing me), so this is a great time to start your holiday shopping.

If you live in the United States, the Maplela code will reduce shipping by $9, but you will still be required to pay the balance of the international shipping charge.  US customers also have access to a (currently) limited portion of the Maplelea collection at  As of this writing, shipping is free to the US if you have an Amazon Prime membership or your order is greater then $35.

To redeem the American Girl offer, visit, add at least $50 in merchandise to your cart, and enter code INSPIRING at checkout.  This offer is valid through September 22, 2014 – 11:59 PM CST.

To redeem the Maplelea offer, visit, add at least $50 in merchandise to your cart, and enter code FALL at checkout.  This offer is valid through midnight (not sure on timezone), September 24, 2014.




American Girl Doll 61 Free Sewing Pattern

Did you notice Ada’s sweater?  There is a nip in the air and Fall has arrived at the foot of the Rocky Mountains.  While it’s not quite time to break out our ski jackets, we definitely need a extra layer in the evenings.  If you’d like to sew Ada’s sweater for your American Girl doll (fits Maplelea and other 18 inch dolls, too), be sure to sign up for the Many Small Friends newsletter, as this pattern will be free for subscribers!
