Karen Mom of Three's Craft Blog Dolly Summer School - Horses

Welcome back to week three of Karen Mom of Three's Craft Blog Dolly Summer School. This week we are featuring tutorials, patterns and ideas for your dolls horses!
One of my first activities for horses on Doll Diaries was this tutorial for a card board stable. Click here for the tutorial. 
In 2013 for Camp Doll Diaries I had so much fun creating this play set for my dolls horse. I hope you will enjoy taking a look at how easy this is to do as a camp craft or rainy day activity. You can view the tutorial by clicking here.

I made these hay bales one year for my dolls horse and they are still being used by my nieces today! Click here for the tutorial.
For those of you who sew I can recommend this Etsy Pattern listing by my friend Skippy's Mom! If you are sewing for your doll lover who has a horse you will love this pattern. It is offered at $3.99 and it is fun to make with fabric for each and every holiday! Click here for shop and listing. 

Thank you for joining us today and we look forward to having you for Summer School next week join us when our theme is Crafts for your dolls room or doll house!

Great Camping Set For Dolls From Lemon Bay Doll Company!

With Camping season upon us I wanted to highlight Lemon Bay Doll Company's great play set that includes a Doll Tent (that a doll can stand comfortably in!) 2 doll cots, picnic table and campfire pit! This fun set is priced perfectly at $139! This is one of the best deals for quality handmade play sets on Etsy right now!


The tent and cot frames are made with wood dowels and pegs -- our own variation on Tinker-Toy®. The dowel-and-peg construction makes assembly easy. Our tent and cots are made of sturdy white canvas. Tent edges and openings are finished with binding. Pretty white organza ribbon is used for tie-backs and closures. 18-inch dolls can stand in the middle of the tent and two dolls fit comfortably with plenty of room for backpacks and sleeping bags. In fact, the tent is so roomy that quite often we find our youngest IN THE TENT with her doll. 
Dimensions of tent: L 23” x W 24” x H 22”   


Our picnic table is handcrafted of pine and finished with our own homemade, non-toxic wax prepared with mineral oil and bees wax. It is perfect for meals at the campsite or a game of cards around the lantern in the evenings. Dimensions of picnic table: L 13” x W 7” x H 7” Dimensions of benches: L 12” x W 4” x H 4”

Check out all the fun and exciting summer themed doll furniture offered by Lemon Bay Doll Company by clicking here to visit their Etsy Shop.
