Make It Monday! Make Your Dolls A Beach Tote!


Today I wanted to share with you a easy way to make your dolls a sturdy beach tote! This weekend was the unofficial start of summer and with that comes bathing suit and beach weather!
To make your own beach tote you are going to need:
-Fun Foam
-Duck Tape
-Scissors
-Ruler

 Step 1- assemble all your supplies. Cut out your bag pattern from the fun foam. This will give it structure when you cover it with the tape.
Step 2- Cut two rectangles 4 inches by 2 inches these are the sides of your bag
 Step 3 - Cut 2 rectangles that are 2 inches by 1 3/4 inches wide, these are the short sides.
Step 4- Cut 1 rectangle that is 4 inches by 1 3/4  for the bottom

Step 5- Use your tape to assemble your bag, adding more a tape along the bottom edges and sides as you go.
Step 6- Create handles with 2, 6 inch long pieces of duck tape, fold one long edge into the center of the tape and repeat with the other long edge, repeat on the other piece.
Step 7- Fold and tape your handles into place and line the inside of your beach bag with more of the tape.
Step 8- Fill with your dolls beach needs, I used a doll sized towel, sunglasses and camera.

Make It Monday! Let's Make A Raised Vegetable Garden For Your Dolls!

Karen here and now is the perfect time to start planting and growing your own food. Urban gardens are becoming very popular where I live and people are building their own raised garden beds to grow their own vegetables and fruit. I thought it would be fun to make a raised vegetable garden for your dolls using items you may already have at home in your own craft boxes.
To build a Raised Vegetable Garden for your dolls you will need:
-One Pop Tart ot Tea Box (empty)
-Popsicle Sticks
-Leaves from artificial flowers
-1 tooth pick
-1 small piece of paper
-1 piece of brown felt or fun foam
-1 glue gun
-2 glue sticks
-Scissors

Step 1- Gather all your supplies and plug in your glue gun.
Step 2- Make sure the end of your pop tart box is sealed shut, you can use glue for this.
Step 3- Start at one end of your box and add a line of glue, then press in to place a Popsicle stick.
Step 4- Continue all the way around your box.
Step 5- Trace the outside of your pop tart box ( I used a second box) with a pen and cut out your "dirt" for the planter.
Step 6- Lay it in place inside your planter box.
Step 7- Use a small piece of paper to make a garden marker. My sign says Lettuce and I drew a small lettuce plant. Glue the paper to the tooth pick and then glue the tooth pick to the inside of the planter where ever you wish.
Step 8- Start removing the leaves from your artificial flowers and then bunch them together using a bit of glue as you go and then glue them to the felt in your planter box. You can use all the same leaves or you can use a verity which I had on hand in my craft box. Fill the planter as much or as little as you like.
I hope you enjoyed today's craft and I look forward to sharing more doll crafts with you again soon. If your doll would like to add the Little Ladybug outfit to your dolls wardrobe like my doll was wearing today you can check out this outfit on Daydream Doll Boutique's shop page by clicking here. ~

Make It Monday! Use Phoomp and Felt To Add Personality To Your Hairbands!



Karen here and my order of hairbands from Punch Place Plus arrived and I could not wait to share this craft idea with you!

Punch Place Plus sells packages of wonderful doll hair bands that you can use for your own doll or purchase for a party craft!

To make your own Hairbands with Personality you will need:
- Hairbands for your doll (click here for Punch Place Plus Website)
-Printed fabric felt I used Kunin Felt 60's Floral
-Phoomph For Fabric
-Scissors
Step 1- Assemble all your supplies. Cut out your shape and pattern from your felt.
Step 2- Cut out a piece of Phoomph that is a similar size to your felt shape.
Step 3- Cut out a second piece of felt that is the same size as your Phoomph.
Step 4- Peel back one side of the Phoomph paper exposing the sticky side and place 1 cut out shape of your felt on top with the pattern side up.
Step 5- Trim around your shape as shown in the photo above.
Step 6-Cut a the other piece of felt the same shape as the Phoomph covered piece and place it aside.
Step 7- Decide where you want to position your shape and peel the backing off the other side of your phoomph and stick it in to place.
Step 8- Use the other piece of felt you cut and stick it to the other side pattern side out on the opposite side of your hairband. This covers any sticky parts. Press down along the seems and place in your dolls hair.
