…The Five a Week Pledge.
This week’s craft:
Doll Tanks Tops
I made cute little drawstring tank tops for my doll (you can see her reaction here). I say drawstring, but will always think of them as pillowcase tops. The first time I learned how to make tops like this was from a tutorial for a top using a pillow case I saw in a magazine. Since then I have made several (see Dolly Dressing and Give Me a Doll With Hair).
The first I actually made two of, one for both of my ball jointed dolls. Simple with cute thin pink ribbon.
The second one I used lace instead of ribbon. It also has lace running along the neckline. Cute and a little dressier.
The third top has the ribbon tying in front instead of at the side. I think it’s a nice touch, or least it’s different.
And the last one is a little rough. I left the edges unhemmed and uses some fabric strips instead of ribbon for the ties. By the way all these tops where cut from t-shirt scraps from previous projects. Great way to use up the leftovers.
Now as an extra bonus, I decided to make a video tutorial for these cute doll tanks tops. Now everyone can dress their dolls easily for summer.
