My doll Nicki is 9 years old, 10 this December. I got her when I was 7, and needless to say, she is very well-played with! Today, I decided to give my favourite doll a makeover, complete with some curls and a “bath”. I used this tutorial by AGSnapshots on YouTube for her hair, and can’t wait to see how they turn out tomorrow! I’m using a gentle baby wipe on her vinyl skin to clean her up and get rid of any shininess. I want to do some more fun things to her to give her a complete makeover, but don’t know what. Have any ideas? 😀
Hey everybody! I just made a cool no-sew “college” blanket for one of my dolls: Nicki! She loves it, and so do I, so without further ado, how to make one!
- Two Pieces of Soft Felt From a Package (different colours)
- Dark Marker (as many colours as you want)
First, pick out two college colours. These can be from a real college or an imaginary one, whichever you prefer! Mine is dark yellow and dark green for the imaginary school, Novella. Her whole room is in the theme of yellows and greens!
Next, set them on top of each other, and cut 1-1/2 slits on one side only. Tie them off with a knot, go to the next side. When you reach a corner, cut off a 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 inch square shape from it. This will give your blanket an even, flawless look, and provide you with some squares to decorate their room with. Make a garland, flags, or a scarf out of the squares!
After you’ve finished that, and your whole blanket is tied, choose the lightest side and decorate it with words from your doll’s classmates! Write them name first, in big letters, then decorate the rest with “XOXO” “#1 Fan” “Luv u!” etc!
Then you’re finished, and you can move on to a new project!
Love, Nicki and the rest ❤
