After spending so much time on Pinterest
looking at vintage furniture I thought it would be fun to try to make a slipper
Chair and Foot Stool for my mini dolls. Today I will show you how to make your
own for your dolls using items you may already have on hand or can easily find
at the dollar store.
To make your own Slipper Chair and Foot
Stool you will need:
-1 toilet paper tube
-1 cardboard egg carton
-*1 inch square of fiber fill, toilet paper
or more felt for the chair cushion.
-Dollar store ribbon, lace and
-A glue gun
Step 1- Use a ruler to make a mark at 1 ½
inches from the end of your toilet tube.
Step 2- Use your scissors to cut down to
that line and across 2 inches and back up. This will create your dolls chair
Step 3- Use your scissors to cut out one of
the egg cups from your carton. You will slide this cup inside your toilet tube
and tape or glue into place.
Step 4- Trim the back rest edges as shown
in the photo above
Step 5- Use your felt to cover your chair
back starting on the inside as shown above. Use your glue gun to glue the felt
in place. Do not glue the back down yet, just the front.
Step 6- Trim the access from the chairs
Step 7- Cover the bottom of your chair with
more of your felt glue into place. Glue the felt to the chair back at the back
Step 8- Use your lace trim to cover the
bottom of your chair to create a chair skirt. Glue as you go starting at the
middle back of your chair. Add a ribbon trim to embellish.
Step 9- Cut a 2 inch square from your felt
and one 1 inch square of fiber fill.
Step 10- Place the fiber fill on top of
your felt, use hot glue to attach the felt to the fiber fill. Use a pencil to
press the felt into the fiber fill.
Step 11- Once you have gone all the way
around your cushion is ready to glue into place.
Now to create the foot stool
Step 1- Cut another egg cup from your egg
Step 2- Cut a two and a half inch piece of
felt and glue around your egg cup as shown in the photo above.
Step 3- Once the felt is glued to the sides
fold and glue the remaining felt to the top of the egg cup. Embellish the stool
as you did the bottom of the chair.
Step 4- Once the top is covered cut a piece
of felt into a circle and glue on top of the folded felt.
Step 5- Add a ribbon bow to the back of the
chair and the foot stool with felt.
Once your chair is dry, your dolly can put
her feet up!

Well it is getting to be that time of year
again and with school starting everywhere you look you find school supplies!
Today’s craft is inspired by the back to school flyers, school supplies and
doll sized note books I found at my local party store. I love binders and think
they are a great way to get organized. Today I will show you how to make your
To create your own Back to School Binder
you will need:
-Cardboard (I used a crystal light drink
box. Cut to 2.5 inches by 3 inches on each side using the side of the box
-Hot Glue Gun & Glue Stick
- 2 brads
-Scrap lined paper
-A hole punch
- ½ inch ribbon two pieces cut to 6 inches
Step 1- Assemble your supplies. Measure and
cut out your binder shape from your cardboard as shown in the photo above.
Step 2- Heat your glue gun. Wrap your
binder shape in felt and secure with glue.
Step 3- Use yourhole punch to punch two holes for your brads, which will
secure your paper in a later step.
Step 4- Continue wrapping and securing your
felt around your binder shape as shown in the photos above. Seal the edges with
more hot glue.
Step 5- Push your brads through the two
holes you made, on the outside of your binder set aside.
Step 6- Cut Scrap Lined Paper to fit inside
Step 7- Use your hole punch to make
matching holes on your paper
Step 8- Bend the brads to keep your paper
in place. Then fold the paper to fit match the folds of your binder.
Step 9- Optional add felt pockets and ties
on the inside of your binder. Cut felt to fit and glue into place. Repeat on
the inside of both sides.
Step 10- Use your ribbon ties and glue one
to the inside edge under your felt pocket as shown in the photos above.
Step 11- Decorate and embellish the outside
of your binder; I used fun foam flowers and glued small buttons to the center
of the flower. Once dried tie a bow in your ribbon and give to your doll to
take to school!
