Mini Doll Monday – Make a No-Sew Mini Doll Skirt!

img_0157(Look at that pretty skirt! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

Yay! A craft, finally! I’ve been so busy with photo story series and other upcoming stuff for my blog I haven’t found a lot of time to craft lately. Which stinks, because I love crafting!

So while trying to find an idea for October’s Mini Doll Monday, I was finding an outfit to put Jessa in. She needed something new, so I made her something real quick.

img_0159And boy, was it ever quick! In seconds I had a super cute mini doll skirt made from…

screen-shot-2016-09-23-at-12-33-31-pmA sock!

But first, get an adult’s permission before cutting any socks. ๐Ÿ˜‰

You will need:

โ€ขA sock with a higher ankle
โ€ขScissors
โ€ขA small hair elastic
โ€ขYour mini doll!

Let’s get started. ๐Ÿ˜€
(If you need to, get an adult’s help with the scissors. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚ )

img_0155The picture is pretty self-explanatory, but basically, you grab your sock with its higher ankle and cut it all the way across, right about the heel.

img_0156Slip it on your doll. Then slip a small hair elastic over it, like a little belt to keep it up.

Tada! It’s that simple, and with all kinds of different socks with all kinds of different patterns, your mini doll’s wardrobe canย be expanded dramatically!

If you wanted a longer skirt or even a dress, you could cut from a knee-high sock and make the skirt part of it longer. ๐Ÿ˜€

img_0159Isn’t Jessa so pretty? ๐Ÿ™‚ She really likes the skirt and is pleased with how it turned out! Now I’m on the hunt for more slightly higher-ankled socks that nobody’s using… ๐Ÿ˜‰

img_0162That’s all for this month’s Mini Doll Monday! Jessa says adios and wishes you the best day yet! ๐Ÿ™‚

If you tried out this craft on your mini dolls, let me know! ๐Ÿ˜€
Would you like to see more crafts?

Love,

โ™ฅ Madison and Jessaย โ™ฅ

    That’s so cute, Madison! I don’t have any mini dolls, but it should work for my sister’s dolls!

    This is a really fun craft! I should have kept all my old long socks… I guess I’ll have to see if I have any other socks! I wonder if this could even be altered into a dress? I seem to keep wanting to get my old minis out (of storage when we move) more and more!

      Thanks so much, Gracie! Yes, it could, if you made the skirt part of it longer and cut it from a knee-high sock. It’d look super pretty! ๐Ÿ˜€ And good luck with your move! ๐Ÿ˜€

    That is super cute! Now I need to go rummage through my sock drawer and look for the lonely ones. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m praying for you guys with Hurricane Matthew! It’s so sad but I hope that it doesn’t hit y’all. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you so much Grace! That’s so sweet of you!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh, and I’m so glad you commented, I’ve been trying to reach you. I think I have a problem commenting on your blog. I’ve tried sending in my entry for TIWC, but my comment never made it through. I tried commenting on another post, and that didn’t work, either. I’m not sure if you turned on comment moderation, but it hasn’t told me that my comment is awaiting moderation. I tried commenting from my reader and from the little bell icon (where you see your new comments, likes, etc.), but those didn’t come through, either. I think I’m having the same problem on another doll blog, too, so I hope I haven’t been marked as spam or something. Do you know what’s going on? In case I’m not able to comment on your blog with my TIWC entry, here it is: http://delightfulworldofdolls.com/tiwc-entry-6-make-it-count/

        Oh no! Hmmm, that is so weird! I looked in my spam comments and all of them are there. That’s just so weird! I’m not sure what would make them do that. :\ Anyhow, thanks for your entry! I can’t wait to read it! ๐Ÿ˜€

          P.S. I just un-spammed them and moderated them. That’s sooo weird, though! ๐Ÿ™

          Oh, okay! Phew! Thanks so much for looking into that, I don’t know why my comments made it in there. ๐Ÿ˜› And no problem! Hope you like it. ๐Ÿ™‚
          P.S. Okay, thanks so much! Yeah, that is weird. ๐Ÿ˜• That’s probably what happened with that other blog, too. ๐Ÿ˜•

            You’re welcome! Me either! Maybe you could ask WordPress? I’m not sure what would cause that…

              Hmm, maybe. I’d have no idea how to do that, though. ๐Ÿ˜› EDIT – Never mind about the rest of the comment, I just commented on her blog with a different IP address. ๐Ÿ˜›
              Could you do me a favor just whenever you aren’t busy? Julia just started her doll blog, Fun and Games AG, and I want to comment on her new posts, but it’s surely marking me as spam since none of my comments are going through. ๐Ÿ˜› I’m not able to contact her any other way, so if you aren’t busy, would you mind commenting on her newest post and telling her that Madison from Delightful World of Dolls loves her blog and followed, but none of her comments are going through for some reason and if she could check her spam folder and see if they are there?
              If you could do that, thank you SO much! I totally understand if you can’t though. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh, this is such a cute skirt!! I love it! And it’s so easy! If I ever used mini dolls (I have one that isn’t ever used…maybe I should change that? ;D), I know I’d try this out! Awesome post, Madi! ๐Ÿ™‚
