Hello there! 🙂 It’s Madison here. I’ve got a super easy craft for y’all today! 😀 I made this one while trying to find a shirt for Issa to wear in part 6 of HOTH.
I love sewing, but I had to find something real quick that matched with Issa’s pants and wasn’t something another doll had already worn in the series.
And if you want to know how to make it, I’ve made an easy tutorial for you! 😀
You will need:
•A piece of clothing that has a long seam, like a legging pants leg, a dress or a skirt (stretchy fabric works best)
You will also need a parent’s permission to cut up clothing. 😉
Let’s get started!
First, lay out your fabric flat and folded directly at the seams. Lay your doll on top and cut two slits where you would like the sleeves to end.
Make a large square from where you cut the slits. Be sure it is the length you want the shirt to be.
When you open it up, it should look something like this, if you’ve done it right. You’re going to keep it closed for the most part while making this craft, though.
Lay the folded square on your doll and cut two slits where you would like the hole for her head to be.
Then cut a nice crescent shape.
Slip the shirt over your doll with her head through the hole.
Now cut a long, thing strip of fabric. It can be from the same fabric you cut the shirt out of, or a different color or pattern for a pop of color. 😀 Again, stretchy fabric works best. 🙂
If it’s stretchy, pull on it so it curls up into a little… thing like this. 😛
Pull both edges of the shirt together so they overlap. Then tie the string around the doll like a sash.
You can tie it in a bow or a knot, like I did. 😀
If you need to, trim the bottoms so that they’re even or make some final adjustments to the hole for her head.
And that’s it! It’s literally as easy as that!
Here is after I trimmed the bottom a little. 😛
Don’t Josefina and Cécile look great in their new shirts?
You can make them in all different colors to match whatever pants or skirts need a top!
And again, you can make the little sashes different colors for a pop of color.
Aren’t Josie and Cécile SO pretty?
This has to be one of my favorite outfits that I’ve put Cécile in!
That just about wraps up this post.
If you make a shirt from this craft, let me know! 😀 Do you like the shirts?
♥ Madison, Josefina, and Cécile ♥
