Instructions for Making a Doll’s Belt from Bias Tape @ #DIYprojects #DollClothesPatterns

Today’s video offers simple, easy-to-follow instructions for making a doll’s wrap-around tie-style belt to fit Mattel’s Barbie dolls and similar-sized dolls.

It’s a follow-up to the pajamas and bathrobe project that you can find when you click here.

Here’s an image of that project:

A made-to-move Barbie with Asian features wears her black hair in a pony tail. She stands in profile, in front of a vanity mirror over a chest of drawers in perfect 1:6 scale. Beside the chest of drawers is a chair, also made to scale, to fit Barbie. The Barbie wears a cream-colored flannel bathrobe dotted with tiny burgundy polka dots and itty-bitty red cardinals. The doll's left arm reaches around her middle, and her right hand is clearly reaching inside a pocket that's sewn into the side of the bathrobe she wears. Her cream colored felt slippers match her nighttime ensemble.

You can make the nightgown as well, using the links I’ve provided today. Here’s an image of the nightgown:

A made-to-move Barbie with Asian facial features models a just-below-the-knee length sleeveless nightgown. It's made of small print flannel. She also wears tiny felt slippers which match the ivory color of the flannel night gown / pajamas. The logo appears in one corner.

The image shows a soft doll laying on a cutting mat. Beside her is a pen and pencil, a pair of handmade doll shorts, and a pair of handmade doll pants. A woman's right hand points to a pants pattern which is laying on top of a shorts pattern, as if she is somehow comparing the two paper doll clothes patterns: the shorts pattern and the pants pattern. Beside the woman's right hand is a ruler with imperial and metric measurements.
