Make It Monday! Make A No Sew Monogrammed Felt Shrug For Your Dolls!

Karen here with my No Sew Felt Monogrammed Shrug for your dolls! This is easy to do with a bit of felt and a low temp glue gun you can make these fun accessories for your dolls and they make a great party craft!

To make you own you will need:
-A low temp glue gun with glue stick
-Felt and Scrap for Monogram
-Your Doll

Step one lay your doll on a piece of paper and make a rough out line of a pattern. You will need to make the pattern much larger then the outline you create but it is a great guide. Give your self lots of space in the pattern so that when you put the shrug on your doll it will fit around her sides!

My pattern is 9 inches across the top, 7 1/2 inches at the bottom and the sleeves are 3 inches from the top to the bend in the arm.
Step 2- Place the pattern on your felt and trace it with a pencil. Plug in your glue gun to warm it up.

Step 3- Cut out your shrug from the felt and pencil markings you have made. Cut up the center of the front of the felt and then try the shrug on.

Step 4- Remove the felt shrug from your doll and re line up the edges. Along the under arm curves place a thin line of glue and press the piece together. Repeat on the other side to create your shrug.

Step 5- Cut out a Letter (the first name of your dolls name, I used Samantha so I cut out an S) and add glue to the back and press it into place on the outside of your dolls shrug, on the left hand side jus above where her "heart" would be.

Once it is dry you can put it on your doll!
I hope you liked today's craft and I look forward to sharing more craft ideas on our next Make It Monday!
