I bought my daughters some tiny dolls the other day as a little treat for being so good all week. They begged for the carrier that went with them but there was no way I was going to pay the nearly $30 for each bag when I knew I could make something similar at home. I took photos while I made the little dolly carriers so you can make one too.
The bag is more like a little folder with pockets inside. The idea is the baby dolls can have their nappies changed on the soft pink quilted fabric on the right and all their little bottles and accessories can be kept in the pockets. There's little ribbon to tie the carry cot or baby doll to.
So here's how you make it. What you need is:
1 piece quilted fabric
1 piece printed cotton fabric
both 37cm x 23cm
2 pieces printed cotton 15cm x 9cm (closure)
1 piece printed cotton 12cm x 40cm (handle)
1 piece printed cotton 26cm x 9cm (for pockets)
1" square velcro.
1 narrow ribbon 25cm long
- Cut out all the fabric pieces. Put the 2 bag pieces together. Fold them again so the fabric is in quarters and gently round off the corners on one side. Open out. You should have two oval shapes.
- Round off one edge of the bag closure pieces of fabric. Stitch the two pieces together, leaving the short straight edge open. Clip curves and turn right sides out. Press and stitch one half of the velcro to the curved end.
