Make a Dolly 1st Aid Kit! – Free Tutorial

Monday, March 1, 2010

I can’t take all the credit for this, the wonderful Karen and the Guelph Home School Group, who I posted on earlier this week (link), included a mini sewing repair kit in their shipment of 37 dolls in case they got overwhelmed with love by their new owners ♥ - and I thought it was a fantastic idea!  So I decided to make a 1st Aid Kit for my Dollies too.

Here’s what you need:
A couple of spare needles
Scrap fabric

  • Draw around a business card (1)
  • Divide it into 3rds (2) and draw a triangle, slash, triangle at the bottom and top of each section.
  • Cut out the triangles, and cut the length of the slash in both top and bottom (3).
  • Thread a needle (double it over makes for quicker wrapping!) with a good couple of meters of thread and tape it to the middle of your card (4).
  • Wrap the thread around and card (5) and then thread it through the slit to secure it (6).
  • Add a few scraps of fabric if you like too.  I cut mine in to squares and heart shapes ♥
  • Add another double length of a different colored thread to the other side and your done!

Why not add a 1st Aid Kit to your Dolly when you pop them in the post!

Have Fun and Happy Sewing!
