  • scissors

www.cupcakesandlace.comHow to Make:

  1. Start by figuring out what kind of clothing design you would like to do for your doll!  Hint:  You can use the doll to measure on the back side (white faded side) of the fabric if you want the exact body size of the doll.  Then once you trace you can cut it out on the line.  We wrapped one piece around the body then glued it.  Then made a small cape but cutting a skinny rectangle out of the fabric and glueing it in the front to create a cape.
  2. Once you glue on your outfit start to embellish!  Use bows and ribbons!
  3. Create the head and face.  Cut and glue yarn for hair.  Glue googley eyes and draw on a smile.
  4. let it dry for an hour or so and then you can play with your new Christmas doll!
