No-Sew Doll Skirt

Posted by Ainsley Cooper at 1:14 PM
Things you'll need:
-fabric (I used some old shorts)
-fabric glue (optional)
-velcro (optional)
-some kind of string (optional)

*I will be showing you how to make this with velcro. If you don't want to use velcro you can use string to hold the skirt in place.*

Take your fabric and cut from the edge to however long you want the skirt to be.
Then cut along the width so that it wraps around the dolls body PLUS about an extra 1/2 inch.
Take your rectangle and along the length, cut out a smaller rectangle about 3/8in long by 1/2 wide.
(Hopefully the picture explains a little better. -- If you're using old clothes you can use the hem for the top edge and just cut out a 1/2 inch piece from that like I did)

Attach your velcro.Stick a piece on the front side where the extra fabric is and one on the wrong side where the flat edge is.

Once it dries lay the piece face down and place your doll face down on top.
Take the side with the extra half inch and wrap it around the doll.
Then take the other side and wrap it over top to fasten the velcro.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a skirt!

If you dont want to use velcro, you can tie string or a hair tie around the waist to hold it in place.
