I’ve got a project to share with you today that is hot off of the sewing machine. With a very small investment of time, you can create a bunch of these darling doll skirts. This is a creative project to do for the special doll owner in your life. Stocking stuffer anyone?
- 9-inch by 12-inch printed soft felt sheet
- Sew-on snap
- Bias tape maker to make at least 9 inches of bias tape
The pattern piece
- For a 13-inch doll print it out at scale 100%
- For a 14.5-inch doll print it out at scale 115%
You will just be using the skirt pattern pieces. I printed out two copies, then I taped all four pattern pieces together to make one continuous pattern piece.
Cut the skirt out of the soft felt, sew bias tape on the waist edge, and then sew on the snap.
No need for hemming as the soft felt doesn’t fray. And that’s it! Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?
I used a 1/2 inch bias tape maker to make my own bias tape. For help with all things bias tape, here are tutorials from the Oliver + S blog:
- How to make traditional bias strips
- How to make continuous bias strips
- How to use a bias tape maker
- Bound seams tutorial
These little doll skirts are super fun to make and they turn out absolutely adorable, don’t you think?
Happy doll sewing!
