My Dolls (That aren’t being cleaned/fixed)

Yes, my dolls are very ‘loved on’. But I think they’re in okay shape, so here are the ones that are ready for the camera! Yes, their hair is a bit messy, because I had to carry them downstairs all by myself, and they got disheveled in the process haha. Poppy Mae (Orig. Ruthie) and Eden Grace (Orig. Elizabeth) both need some major fixing. Primrose Maeby (Orig. Josefina) just needs to be washed a little! 🙂 I’m getting some money through selling things, and am trying to find a job so i can fix Poppy and Eden. Wish me luck!

Cleaning Day!

I gave 8 of my 11 dolls a proper scrub down, and cut the hair of two of the ones who had a huge mess going on. They look great with their little bobs, and I can’t wait to show you guys pictures when I finish up with all of my dolls!

I used a little vinegar on a soft cloth to scrub away the white marks and such. They still have a few stains and some have a pen mark or two, but I know how to get those out. I just need some of that acne cream and sunlight. Unfortunately it’s dreary here, so I have to wait :/

I also curled the hair of the dolls that needed it, and brushed it out neatly. How do you clean and care for your dolls?

My Favourite AG Doll Summer-Inspired DIYs!

Summer is almost here! I know, I know, it’s only March… but it’s not that far off. So, we need to get prepping, and start creating things for our dolls so we have them in time for Summer. I found all of these on Pinterest, so I know there are definitely more ideas! I’m going to be continuing to add ideas, so let me know in the comments if you find any you think should be on here! Have fun, dolls!

Also, here’s an announcement for you! I am changing all of the names of my dolls (except Nicki: sorta. Her name is going to be Nicolette) so I’m searching for names! See ya in the comments!

DIY AG Doll Perfume!

Hey everybody! Here is how I made a few perfumes for my doll’s vanity set I’m working on! These are super easy, so here we go!

DIY Perfume.png

What you’ll need:

  • A perfume bottle image (I found mine in a beauty brands magazine, but you can use some you print off since you’ll be ‘laminating’ them with clear tape.
  • Clear tape
  • Hot glue
  • cardboard or stiff paper

Begin by putting tape over the images, and cutting them out. Then hotglue the perfume image onto the cardboard. Cut the image out again, and then make a triangle shape. Cut off the tip, and bend it at the top. Glue the bent portion onto the back of the perfume image, and voila! You have doll perfume 🙂

My Lazy Attempt at Doll Clothes Made From Baby Outfits

Here are my clothes I made from baby outfits, modelled by Nicki!

 

The first one was a long sleeved button up onesie. I used the back part, and the sleeves, to make a shirt and booties. Idk why.

The second one was a long sleeved onesie as well, and I just cut off the bottom, lazily leaving the bottom unhemmed. It’s a nightgown, so it really doesn’t matter haha.

The third one was a button up long sleeved onesie (again) and it is now a sweater! This one took a while, because I hemmed the bottom, and took it in twice on the back.

And last but not least, my favourite: a sweatshirt made from a grey long sleeved onesie. I took in the back, and cut the bottom part off. I hemmed it, and rolled up the sleeves for a cute and stylish look! The headband is from the band of some pink pants. I had to take it in a little bit, but it still looks nice! 🙂

 

Which is your favourite? Have you ever done this?
