My Niece Trinity is a hockey player. She lives in Montreal. She wants to be a goalie, so does her AG doll. Here is the problem we could not find goalie hockey gear anywhere to buy, so Aunty Karen got asked to make some. Here is how I did it. We did order the hockey helmet from Maplelea here in Canada and are waiting for it to arrive. Here is what it will look like.
I made the goalie pads first using a large sponge from the dollar store I cut it into three peices. Using the outside pieces of the sponge as the pads and the inside sponge I cut down for the blocker. the sponges for the pads should be 2 1/2 inches wide by 3 1/2 inches high.
To make the outer casing for the pads I cut out of black broad cloth 4 5 1/2 inch X 3 1/2 inch rectangles. Out of 1 inch elastic two 4 inch strips. I attached the elastic on two of the pieces of broad cloth as shown about half way down the rectangle and about 1 inch in. then I put the other rectangle broad cloth on top with right sides together and stitched it around three sides, turned it right side out.I then placed the foam in side and then slip stitched the pads closed.
For the blocker I cut two pieces of black broad cloth 2 1/2 inches by 4 inches and repeated the steps as above.
For the glove I traced the dolls hand and allowed 1/2 all around and cut out of broad cloth to make the glove. I finished the wrist edges of the glove before stitching together.
I then decorated with paint the pads and gloves. I also made some hockey shorts and a NHL Jersey. I bought the pink stick at the dollar store for $1.25, though I understand that build a bear has a perfect stick and has great NHL uniforms that can be altered to fit 18 inch dolls.
