Cloth "Paper" Dolls

One of the gifts I am making for the girls this Christmas is cloth "paper" dolls. I love the idea and remember seeing some a few years ago in an online shop, but there aren't many to be found right now. So, why not make them myself? I think they turned out quite cute!

 I made matching sets so they won't get jealous ;). Each set has a doll, 2 dresses, 2 boy hairdo's, 2 girl hairdo's, 1 pair of shoes, 1 hat, and several mix-and-match outfits. 

I still need to add some velcro attachments to the back of the clothing and the front of the dolls, but here is what one looks like dressed:

I'm even making sparkly carrying cases for doll sets. The cases will hold plenty more, so I can make them extra outfits for future gifts.

I think they'll really like them, don't you?

Very cute Becci! They look like fun to me! Your girls (and your boy) are so blessed to have a mom like you.

O yes I think they will like them. Such a cute idea. When I heard about your idea earlier I was going to suggest finding a scrapbook store that had dies with which to cut out the dolls, etc. but looks like you did a great job. Merry Christmas.

I remember having tons of paper dolls. I loved playing with them! There's something about using your imagination that makes everything just right! They will LOVE them! We went kind of anti-lights and sounds on our son's Christmas gift this year. He got a wooden train set with the trains that have little magnets on them so they attach to each other. No bells and whistles, just his imagination!
