Felt Dolls Projects.
I was getting into making felt projects for all the Holidays, and I wanted to make some felt dolls for my niece’s twin daughters’ birthday. They are 4 this year. I had ordered felt by the yard from Hobby Lobby earlier in the year for my felt crafts for the year.
I printed out the patterns and cut out the shapes needed then added the embellishments such as lace, ribbon, buttons and beads. I embroidered they eyes, nose and mouths first on the faces. I found the ideas for this doll at Pinterest. The dolls, and for the book and bed part and on the back.
The dolls are lightly stuffed, and the clothes and hats are not padded.
I sewed their undies on the dolls bodies so they do not come off. The clothes are supposed to be like the old paper doll style. I made two sides and they are held together with straps at the top.
I made a pink purse and a purple backpack for the dolls. The book style storage starts with the cover to look like a door and three windows with a flower garden at the bottom. Inside the left side has a dresser where all the clothes are kept with the hats. The right side has a bed that is a pocket like the dresser where the dolls slip in with two pillows.
I forgot to take a photo of the back which was 10 rows of beads that go from one bead to 10 beads for counting. The beads are the “Biggie Perler Beads” the same you see as the necklaces for the dolls.
Here are photos of the dolls and their clothes felt projects.
