Are you looking for a really quick, no sew craft you can make for your dolls with materials you probably already have on hand? Today I will show you how to make a no-sew apron using felt and a pattern Laura shared with us last year.
Whether your dolls are doing art, cooking in the kitchen or digging in the garden, a simple apron will help keep their clothes clean and they can even look stylish, too.
- Download the printable pattern to make the apron
- Felt or fabric (we love this pink and black polka dot felt from Kunin)
- Aleen’s Original Tacky Glue
- Buttons, stickers or other embellishments
Step 1 – Download, print and then cut out the apron pattern.
Step 2 – Trace your pattern on your felt and then cut out the felt.
Step 3 – Cut out the pocket pattern and then trace around it on another piece of felt – it can be the same color or a coordinating one – it’s up to you.
Step 4 – Put a thin line around the bottom edge of the pocket and stick it to the apron. Make sure you leave the top part open so your doll can use it.
Step 5 – Glue any embellishments on the pocket or apron.
Step 6 – Use a hole punch to add holes to the shoulders and waist.
Step 7 – Thread the ribbon through the holes. Make sure you cut your ribbon long enough to fit your doll.
This project is just so quick and easy – you can make them for all your dolls or for any occasion. They would even be fun as birthday party favors.
Guess what? Thanks to your requests, we are going to start selling kits to make some of our most popular projects in our Etsy store! This is the first set available and only limited quantities of each kit will be available.
