I come from a very crafty family! About 12 years ago my parents used to have market stalls – Dad made lots of wooden toys (pull a longs, dolls cradles etc), and Mum specialised in painting the toys, as well as making dolls clothes and accessories. This was around the time my children, and my nieces and nephews were small so they always had plenty of wonderful toys to play with that Nan and Pop had made. Sarah’s dolls had the most beautiful clothing to be dressed in. One of Mum’s popular products was the Barbie Sleeping Bag. She even made one for my son’s, Action Man, so he wasn’t left out!
I made up a couple recently for a little friends Bratz dolls. I forgot to take photos of the process but it is fairly straight forward so will describe the steps in case you want to make one for yourself. The size can be adjusted to suit the size of the doll – they would look cute with Blythe dolls!
If you want to make some for a Bratz doll here is what you need:
- Piece of polar fleece measuring 21 x 6 inches (53 x 15 cm)
- Piece of quilting cotton measuring 21 x 6 (53 x 15 cm)
