Karen Mom of Three's Craft Blog Dolly Summer School- Easy Sew Projects

Thank you for joining us this week for our Summer School  Easy Sew Projects. Even if you are new to sewing, thinking about getting a machine or have sewn for years we hope you will enjoy this weeks projects.

One of the first sewing projects I ever did for my doll was turning this baby Christmas gown I got at a yard sale for 50 cents into a perfect ball gown. My tutorial can be found by clicking here. 


If hand sewing is more your speed click here for my doll sized tea bag tutorial. 

I had so much fun creating dolly casts and this hospital gown when I started sewing and I shared my tutorial here on my blog. Click here for the tutorial and pattern.

My niece Trinity asked me for a neck pillow for her doll many years ago and this was the first one I sewed and shared my pattern of, I also made one later on for Doll Diaries but here is my original tutorial click here to make your own.

So many fun memories creating the sleep mask as well. Click here for my pattern and tutorial.


My niece Laura really wanted a party hat for her dolls that would not rip so I set out and made her this one out of felt and elastic. I was so happy with how it turned out. I have shared this tutorial and pattern in many places but click here for the original one! Then here for a more step by step one.

I made a mini doll sleeping bag for Doll Diaries one year and this is a fun starting out tutorial for machine sewing. Click here for that tutorial.

Thank you for joining us for this week's Dolly Summer School ideas! We hope you will join us next week for our Doll Food Tutorials.
