So we are now American Girl fans in the Curtis household. Well, Scarlet is a fan of her doll (and I admit I am kind of living out some childhood fancy-doll fantasies myself, don’t judge me), but the Prudent Dad and I are not so much a fan of shelling out tons of cash on doll accessories. So in the Prudent Mama spirit, I tried to make doll clothes. Then realized I would rather dump cash on clothes then get arthritis piecing together teensy seams all day long. Hmmm, what could I make this doll?
Then it hit me – Scarlet’s favorite thing in the world is her nap mat, so why not make one for her doll? As you can see, both Dolly and Scarlet are huge fans.
Check out more creepy Doll Nap Mat pics after the jump. What cool things have you whipped up for dolls? Leave us some comments, this week’s favorite comment takes home a whole yard of Dan Stiles fabric from Fabricworm!
DIY Nap Mat for a Doll
This fabric is ridic luxe – I can’t tell you how amazing it is, you have to feel it. It’s Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush Velveteen in Maybe Memory and it’s still in stock at Fabricworm! Grab it while is lasts!
Anyhoo, I followed Jacinda’s DIY Nap Mat / Bed Roll tutorial to a T, only in miniature, so I won’t re-hash it here. Just follow the original tute but make it all smaller (I went 18″ wide by 24″ long).
Why are dolls so extra creepy in pictures?
