“Paper” Dolls for Maggie

My sweet granddaughter Maggie just had her 4th birthday!  What a fun age – for her and for her MeMa!  She had an early morning party with donuts and pj’s:

Maggie-blows-out-her-candleWhen I was four I loved paper dolls so when I saw Today’s Paper Dolls fabric at the Heart of Texas One Stop Shop Hop, I had to get them to make for Maggie’s 4th birthday!

They were very easy to make.  You fuse the dolls and a gingham backing to Double Sided Peltex.  The clothes are fused to felt using Steam A Seam 2.  That way the clothes will stick to the doll and you don’t need tabs.

Here are the dolls in the skivvies:

  1. Barbara, they are adorable. I did them for my granddaughter a few years ago, but you reminded me that it is time to do them again for my other granddaughter who turns 4 next week……..think it will have to be a Christmas present this year!!!!
