Upcycling Clothes Into Doll Clothes. Here is the post I did from over from at Creating your way to Success 2 weeks ago. It was featured on Craft Gossip and One Pretty Thing! How fun. Hi, On this fun Friday I want to share how my girls and I put together a few outfits for their dolls by simply upcycling/recycling some unwanted clothing. A Sock hoody, Pant leg jean skirts, a Sleeve sweater and a Sock dress. I made these two yellow haired dolls some time ago for the girls. The third doll is a muslin ready made doll my daughter put together. Sleeve Sweater 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Sock Sweater Hoody This sock hoody is very simple: 1. 2. 3. 4.

I just wanted to share a little gift I did for Miss Ashley Rose's friend who is having her First Holy Communion next weekend. This is a little doll clothes set for an 18-inch doll. I used white muslin made from bamboo. It is so incredibly soft! It only cost $5.68 per yard and I got 1-1/3 yard for this project. I made a little heirloom dress, a slip, bloomers, bonnet and two pairs of socks. Here is a brief tutorial on how to make the socks.
If you want lace at the top of the sock, attach it first (you sew the lace while you are pulling as much as possible to stretch the sock. If you are a perfectionist, mark the exact center down the middle of the sock. This one below I marked the line, but I sewed too far away from it, allowing too much seam allowance. Cut down the middle and across the bottom. Here is one pair of socks all packaged up, with the dress as a back-drop. Here is the dress all "done up" ready for the box. These are the slip and bloomers. Here is the little bonnet.
