My son's new backpack plus need ideas

Is done!  It was much easier than I was expecting it to be.

not the best picture but the inside is lined with rocket ship fabric.  He loves it!  He took it to show and tell yesterday.

So now my next project is to make clothes/accessories for my daughter's 18" doll she's getting for her 3rd birthday in April.  I have some clothes patterns but does anybody have any ideas for accessories?  I bought this...

it's not really big it's about 2' wide and 4' tall.  It has 2 adjustable shelves that are laying flat on a regular shelf and a clothes rod.  I'm planning to make it into her doll storage.  I want to make a bunch of clothes to go on the rod (which means I need hangers any ideas?) and make her some accessories for in the bins but I don't know what!  Any ideas?

Sorry about the sideways pictures.  They are right side up on my computer

That backpack is adorable!
For hangers, maybe pick up some jewelry wire and make wire hangers? You could even grab some ribbon and make cute little bows to decorate them :)

 Just wow! You could also try walmart, they toss most of the hangers out so you may be able to score some baby hangers.

Great job on the backpack! ... "Pinterest" is a great source for ideas for doll clothes and accessories ... fun foam can be used for shoes as well as felt ... you might also try "you can make this" site for doll clothes patterns ... I've never made hangers so I'll be watching this post for suggestions too!

Thanks ladies. There's a few hanger ideas on pintrest but I'm going for the one where you just cut down baby hangers. Cheap and easy.
