Felt Dolls


When I first saw Charlaanne's felt dolls over on her blog, I knew I had to make something similar for my niece's birthday! I made these before she released her pattern, so they are based on what I saw, and constructed with my own ideas!

I made a simple folded felt case to store the dolls in...


And I made a boy and a girl doll, with various little outfits/changes of clothes :) I made everything sturdy with fusible web and backed everything with felt. Small pieces of velcro sticks the clothes to the dolls, which makes it very little hand friendly, and very mix-and-match-able!









My niece received these dolls tonight, and seriously couldn't stop playing with them! What more can you ask for from a present? :) [Even my nephews wanted a go!]

  3. What a BRILLIANT idea!!! Little fingers would be able to dress these dolls, long before they have the co-ordination to actually put clothes on a 3D doll. The dolls themselves look so cute! You've thought of everything with the carry case, too. I would love you to share this at our ongoing linky that's just for Softies, Dolls & Toys .
