Easy Craft!

One really easy way to make doll clothes is using socks, as gross as that sounds. Socks are nice and stretchy, so you don't have to worry as much about making things to tight. And since they're knit fabrics, they don't fray!

 Here is a skirt Grace made:
 All I had to do to make this skirt was cut off just above the heel. Then I cut a little slit in the back, and sewed on some velcro!

Here's a skirt Bella made. All she did was cut off at the heel, and sew a seam up the back!

And here is the disadvantage of using socks...
Here's a lacy skirt that Grace made. It was a little girl's knee sock, and all I had to do was cut off some of the top part. Super easy!!!

 Here's a polka dot skirt Bella made. She made it the exactly the same way as her last skirt.

What do you guys think?

More Plastic Canvas!

We're back with more plastic canvas! (this time Grace helping too:) We got a new book called Fashion Doll Fantasy, and these are the things we've made so far!

First, here's a suitcase that we worked on together!

 And then.... The most adorable thing you'll ever see in your life!!! Bella made this, and when she showed it to me I practically cried. I can't get over how cute it is!!!!!

The tissue box

 What do you think? Isn't it ADORABLE? Bella thinks I'm weird. I just still haven't recovered from it...

 Here's a makeup case we made together!

And here is a pillow that Bella made! She didn't get this pattern from the book, she just made it up.

We're going to try plastic canvas cowgirl boots next.....
