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…

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˜€

Love,
