New Fabric Paper Dolls

When I saw these I had to get them, so cute!  Two of my friends have grand daughters and they are doing them too.  We kind of inspire each other to get things done.  Maybe we just use the kids as a reason, but we really like them for ourselves.

The fabric of course, had the neat little tabs that we all used way back when they were made out of paper and  used to keep the clothes on the dolls.  I hated to cut them off but, they were unnecessary because I used flannel on the backs of the clothing.  I backed the dolls with poster board.  The clothing clings very well.

There are actually two different fabric lines.  One is "Aunt Lindy's Paper Dolls" by Sibling Arts Studio and the Christmas line is Paper Doll Christmas Pattern No 30861 by Windham Fabrics.  I got a half yard of the clothing of each and as you can tell there are several repeats which is fine.  The girls can have the same dresses as long as their doll is facing the correct direction.

My three granddaughters will be here this weekend, so I'm going to let them choose what they want and of course, the extras will stay at Nana's!

Can't wait until they see them.  We are going to have such a fun time!
