Sewing for Dolls: Late-ish Doll Coats for Christmas

This post may contain affiliate links, please check out my disclosures page for more info.  Thanks!

The final project on my Christmas was actually finished right in time for Christmas.  Yay!  But I’m still extremely late posting it here.  :(

Anyway, for the final project I made (let’s see if you can guess it)…

Doll Clothes!

Okay, who saw that one coming.  Last year I made cute little felt coats for some of my ball jointed dolls, and I decided to make some for the rest.  Four more to be exact.

For these two, I used a creamy beige colored felt.

This one (for Hikaru) is trimmed with lace along the pockets and collar for cute girly touch.

And on the tiny coat (for Momoko) I added little felt bows to the pocket.

Almost all the coats have a strap on the back to cinch in the waist a little with little “buttons”.  Like last year’s coats, I used faux pearls for buttons.

This blue coat was made for my newest ball jointed doll.  Being so new she doesn’t have a name or hair, but she is still pretty in blue

Her coat is fairly simply embellished with a tiny felt flower by the collar.

For the only boy doll (Yuki), I made a simple coat with black felt.

No snaps or buttons necessary since he will only wear it open anyway.  It still needed a little something.

So I whipped up a quick scarf with some plaid scraps left over from the pouches I made.

Just cut the fabric in a rectangle, zig-zag stitch along the edge and about half an inch each end, fray the ends for fringe, and trim off the excess fabric.  Super easy.

And the result is super cute.  A tiny yet stylish scarf to complete this doll sized winter ensemble.

And I couldn’t stop at one scarf, so I made more tiny scarves for some animal friends.  Now everyone can be warm this winter.

Update 1/12/18: Now everyone really can be warm, I posted a sort of tutorial with patterns for these coats on my doll blog.  So if you or someone you know has 1/6 or 1/4 scale ball jointed dolls, check it out.

Here’s the updated list:

Four down and out.  Now I can finally relax and sort of enjoy the season.

  2. One of my best memories as a kid was my mom crocheting barbie clothes for me for Christmas one year so I can imagine that this would be pretty special too ;-) I'd love for you to come share at Let's Party https://themarkandjanshow.com/2018/01/17/lets-party/ ... we look forward to seeing you there!
