What to do with sampling fleece?

Last year, the spinners group decided to study various British breeds. We each received a sample, took it home, spun and plied it, and thought,  Hmmmm, now what am I going to do with this small amount of yarn. 
Terry, one of our members, proceeded to envision clothing for an American Girl doll. She wove the fabric for the hooded cape, knitted the sweater, skirt, socks, tam, and felted the shoes. Each breed was highlighted in some piece of clothing.  Last Fall,  her creativity and handiwork was the focal point of the Coralville Library Display.  Outstanding, isn't it?
