Make A NO SEW Vest For Your Dolls!

Today I am thrilled to share this idea with you that I adapted from a video I saw on Facebook, where lady took a scarf and turn it into a a summer vest to wear over a sun dress or tank top! I loved the idea and made myself a few and thought that this would be the perfect No Sew Craft to share with you today!
To make your own you will need:
-A Tape Measure
-A piece of Jersy Knit Stretch fabric
-Scissors
-Your Doll
Step 1- Assemble all your supplies, lay out your fabric and cut out a rectangle that is 10 inches by 20 inches in length.
Step 2- Fold the short ends together   as shown in the photo above
Step 3- Take the open end of at the top of your short side and the top edge of the folded side and tie them together. Make a knot.

Step 4- Once you have tide them together as shown in the photos above, Open the material as shown and you have arm holes. Place your dolls arms in each hole and put the vest on!

This craft would make a great sleep over activity!

Make It Monday! Make A Summer Reading Tent For Your Mini Dolls

Karen here and today I wanted to share with you a fun way you can make a reading tent for your mini 6 inch dolls! My kids love to read outside in tents in the summer and I thought you would like to see how to make one for your mini dolls.
To make your own you will need:
-4 Popsicle sticks
-4 wooden coffee stir sticks
-A glue gun with Glue
-Kunnin Felt I used 60's Tie Dye Felt
-Scissors
-Pen
Step 1- Assemble your supplies and plug in your glue gun
Step 2- lay out you Popsicle sticks as shown in the photo above and glue in each corner to create the base
Step 3- Next add glue in each corner and lay your coffee stir sticks into the glue and hold the tops towards the center while the glue sets.
Step 4- Repeat on the other side,add glue at the top of your coffee stir sticks to hold them in place.
Step 5- Lay your Tent Structure on to the felt as shown in the photo above, use your pen to trace one side, cut out and repeat on the other three sides. Use the left over felt to create tent flaps for your tent and glue them into place along the coffee stick sides.

Step 6- Cut a piece from your felt the same size as your base and glue it to the bottom of your base with the color side up! Now your tent is ready for your mini doll play!

Make It Monday! Dress Up Your Dolls Dress Shoes!

Today I wanted to show you how to take your doll shoes to the next level! Dress up your doll shoes with some ribbon, double sided Aleene's Fabric Fusion Tape from ilovetocreate.com, 
and some slider notions you can find usually in your scrapbook section of the craft store!
To Dress up your own shoes you will need:
- A pair of your doll shoes, I used Blue Patent Doll Shoes from Springfield Collection 
-Coordinating ribbon
- A pair of Sliders
-Aleen's Fabric Fusion Tape  
-Scissors
-Ruler

Step 1- Assemble all your supplies. Cut two 4.5 inch pieces from your ribbon.
Step 2- Feed your ribbon through the slider as shown in the photo above. 
Step 3- Center your slider and flip your ribbon over.
Step 4- Cut a small amount from your Fabric Fusion Tape  and place it on the middle of the back of the slider. Press one end of your ribbon into place, then repeat with more tape and fold the remaining side into place.
Step 5- Repeat step 4 on the remaining ribbon and slider.
Step 6- On the back of your bows and sliders cut a strip from your Fabric Fusion Tape and place it on the back or the bow. Peel the backing off the tape and center and press your bow in to place. Repeat on the remaining shoe and slip on your dolls feet!
I loved using this tape from Aleene's and I love to create because it was so strong and requires no drying time and is no mess. This would make a great craft for a party or rainy day craft!

I look forward to sharing more doll crafts with you again soon!
