How to make a cloth doll body

IMG_3406 2¬†There was a time when I was obsessed with making clothed dolls. I would literally stay up all night to finish a doll and feel enjoyment when my little daughter woke up and was thrilled with mommy’s just made doll ¬†for her.

But that’s an old story now. As I have three beautiful girls, whenever I make something it has to be three sets. A kind inspiration and creation easily end up rather tiring work.

Today my second daughter, Chloe bagged me to make a new doll for her. I had to start doll making for I could not think of an excuse any more.

4.Attach arms and legs on the body by hand sewing.

5.Now you can design clothes for the doll. It is the most hardest but the fun part as well.

I hope you can make your own doll today.

 

Thank you for visiting me.

Love always,

Minki

  1. thank you, it looks so beautiful and easy- I teach a small class of 7-12 yr old to sew, it’s very difficult sometimes to teach them to make something that’s easy enough but that they’ll love. sincerely, Sheila
