Doll Essentials: Sewing


I haven’t showcased a lot of home made doll fashions on our Instagram feed, but I definitely plan to share more. I also do not claim to be an expert, but I have been sewing for over 30 years.

One of our Dolly Resolutions is definitely to sew more clothes this year. Sewing and my love of fashion all started with my Barbie’s when I was a little girl. I can still remember sitting next to my mom when she made a little skirt for my first Malibu Beach Barbie.

Miniature Nail Polish Display

Miniature Nail Polish Display

Every nail enthusiast will love this project! It was a serious hit on my Instagram when I posted it. I almost didn’t post it because I didn’t think anything of it. It was just another component of my over all salon diorama project. I was inspired by a picture I saw on Pinterest and gave it my own spin. This isn’t a complete how-to, but I will share some of the key components of this craft project.
