Karen here and for today's Make It Monday Craft I have come up with a fun New Years Eve Party Favor Craft made from Duck Tape and Pipe Cleaners for your dolls!
To make your own you will need:
-Duck Tape in Grey, Purple and Pink (Or colors of your choice)
- Scissors
- Pipe Cleaner

 Step 1- Fold the pipe cleaner in half and use your scissors to cut the pipe cleaner.
Cut away some of the grey duck tape from the roll and wrap the tape at the bend this would be the "blower" end for your dolls party favor.
Step 2- Fold one of the pipe cleaner ends down and into a circle, this will make your party flavor easy for your doll to hold.
Step 3- Wrap duck tape around the pipe cleaner as shown in the photo above.
Step 4- Wrap the duck tape so that the ends hang over the pipe cleaner  is longer then the end of the pipe cleaner.  Use your scissors to cut slits in the tape making the fray the ends of the party favor.  Use another piece of tape in a different color to wrap around the middle of your favor and use your marker to write 2015! You can bend the pipe cleaner around your dolls fingers or thumb to help them hold the party favor!

Step 5- Repeat the steps on the remaining pipe cleaner for your another doll.
Now you have Party Favors for your dolls to use for New Years Eve!
I hope you enjoy your New Years Celebrations with your dolls and your families!  I look forward to sharing more crafts for your dolls in 2015!

Start wrapping your tape around the top edge of your cup or where ever you like on your cup the design is up to you. Repeat on as many cups as you plan on making into Frozen Doll Treats.

Make It Monday- Let's Make A Fun Fall No Sew Scarf!

It is Make It Monday again and today I am sharing with you a fun fall scarf you can make your dolls. This is a no sew felt scarf and you can make this for your dolls in under 20 minutes!
To Make your own No Sew Fun Fall Scarf you will need:
-Felt in various fall colors.
-1 large piece of felt that is 18 inches long. I used brown.
-Aleene's Fabric Fusion Tape
-*Button's (If you add these you may wish to hand sew these on or you can glue them into place.)
-Ruler or measuring tape
Step 1- Assemble your supplies. Pick your scarf main color. Use your ruler to cut a piece of felt that it 18 inches long by 2 inched wide.
Step 2- Cut rectangles, squares or colored shapes out of your fall colored felt and lay them on your scarf in a pattern.  You can add buttons to see where you wish to put them or leave the scarf with out.
Step 3- Unroll and cut strips of Aleen's Fabric Fusion tape to fit your felt colored shapes. You can then place them on the back of your cut colored shapes and then remove the back and press them into the scarf where you would like. Repeat on all your colors.
Step 4- For the end of your scarf if you wish to add a color fringe as I have cut a piece of Aleen's Fabric Fusion tape from your roll and lay it just above the bottom edge on both ends of your scarf. Place your cut color so that it hangs over the end of your scarf. Use your scissors to cut a fringe end. Make snips up to where the color meets the scarf.
Step 5- Add buttons, or fabric paint to personalize your scarf. Then your scarf will be ready for play!

Make It Monday! Sew A Patch Work Halloween Throw Blanket For Your Dolls

Karen here and for today's Make It Monday craft tutorial I have decided to share a very easy and fun way to create a great patch work quilt for your dolls. This is a great way to practice your sewing and a perfect first quilt!
To create your own you will need:
-Halloween Print Material
-Felt in different colors
-1 large piece of felt for the back of the blanket 12 inches by 18 inches
-A sewing machine
Step 1- Use your ruler and cut a piece of paper 3 inches square. This will be your pattern piece for your patch work squares.
Step 2- Cut out 12 squares of your Halloween Print Fabric and 12 squares of your co-coordinating felt
Step 3- Lay out your fabric and felt 
Step 4- Once you have your pattern selected begin attaching the fabric to the felt. Make rows of  4 squares by 6. Use your sewing machine and begin stitching fabric to felt.. Repeat by attaching all the pieces in your 4 rows of 6 squares. You will create 4 strips of 6 squares.

Step 5- Once you have all 4 strips sewn begin to sew them to each other. Put the patterned fabric facing each other as you sew your strips. Repeat until all your strips resemble the top of your blanket.
Step 6- Turn your now created front piece of your quilt pattern side down on your large piece of 12X18 felt. Pin into place and sew along three sides. Trim the edges and turn it right side out. Pin the open end closed tucking the raw edges in as you go and sew shut, continue stitching along all sides of your blanket. Now your blanket is ready to use!

Make It Monday! A Felt Football For Your Dolls

Karen here and it is Make It Monday again! Today I am sharing how to make an easy Felt Football for your dolls.
To make your own you will need:
-Dark Brown felt
-White Felt
-A Glue Gun
-Stuffing such as fiberfill or tissue
 Step 1- Assemble all your supplies and draw shape on your paper that looks like mine above. Mine is 4 inches long through the center and 2.5 inches wide through the center. Cut it out this is your football pattern.
Step 2- Cut out for pieces of brown felt using your pattern piece.
Step 3- Plug in your glue gun and heat it up.
Step 4- Cut out 8 1 inch long very thin strips of felt to be your stitches and one 2.5 inch long thin piece of white to glue over the stitches.
Step 4- Run a line of glue down one edge of your felt shape and press another on top. Repeat on each of the felt until you have glued three pieces on.
Step 5- Attach the last piece along one side as you did in the previous steep, leaving one side open to stuff.
Step 6- Stuff your felt pocket and then add the last line of glue and seal your football.
Step 7- Trim the edges of your ball. Add more glue if you happen to open the seams as you go.
Step 8- Glue on the eight stitches and then Glue on the longer strip. Let dry.
Step 9- Give to your dolls to play! I used a flesh tone elastic to get the dolls to hold the felt ball.
* The Football figures were in my son's happy meal from McDonald's and are perfect for doll play!
I hope you enjoyed today's Make it Monday Post!

I look forward to sharing more doll play crafts and ideas with you soon.

Make It Monday! Create The Perfect Cake For Your Dolls!

Today's Make it Monday Post is inspired by the little cat food tins that I have had in my recycle bin as one of our cats needed surgery and we had to hide her medicine in the wet cat food. She is on the mend and I found that the little tins were the perfect size for a Dolly Cake!
To make your own you will need:

-A small washed cat food tin
-Duck Tape in Pink, Purple and Green (Or any color you prefer)
-Rick Rack Trim (I got mine at Michael's)
-A Glue Gun with glue stick
-Beads with letters on them
Step 1- Assemble all of your supplies. Cover the bottom of the can, which will now be the top of your cake, with duck tape. Cover the sides as well.

Step 2- Plug in and heat up your glue gun. Un roll your rick rack and glue into place along the top and bottom edge of your your "cake"
Step 3- Create roses for your cake with an additional color of tape. Fold tape over on to it's self and cut strips of tape that you roll and glue as you go. Make a few different sizes and glue into place on your cake.
Step 4- Use some green tape to cut out leaves and glue them into place as shown in the photo above.
Step 5- Glue letter beads to spell Love or your dolls name into place and your dolly cake is ready to serve!
