Craft- How To Make A Doll Pencil Case Take Two

This is a pencil case craft I did back in February of 2013. I don't even know where I was going with the closure, and it didn't even fit my doll's pencils!!



So I decided to remake it. This is how I did it!

You will need: 
*Duck tape
*Scissors
*Velcro
*Doll pencil for measurement
*Jewel, sequin, or any other decoration you want to put on it
*Hot glue/hot glue gun

1) Cut your duct tape 1/4 longer than your doll pencil.

2) Cut another one. Stick them together, sticky side to sticky side.

3) Cut two more pieces about 1/2 an inch or so shorter, but still taller than your pencil.

4) Stick them together like the first pair. You should now have something like this.

5) Put the smaller one on top like so.

6) Cut thin pieces of tape that are the same length as the smaller piece and close both sides and the bottom.

One side done!

Two sides done!

And three sides done.

You should now have a flap at the top that can fold down.

7) Glue on the Velcro one the flap and front of the case making sure they meet up when closed.

8) Add a decoration on if you like.

And you're done!



It fits nicely inside the backpack I did yesterday.
And it can fit my doll's pencils in it...unlike my old one.

Craft- Re-vamping a Doll Bag into Backpack

You know those really popular backpack satchel things? Well, I saw this denim bag in my doll's room and I instantly thought of those. So I decided to spice it up and make a backpack inspired by them!

This is what I'm talking about.

So here is the before. Plain right? Let's get started!

 I am using:
*Felt or fabric for the flap (if you need one)
*Velcro
*Embellishments of your choice
*Doll-sized bag
*Hot glue gun/hot glue

1) Measure how long you want the flap to be. Cut it out with some extra.

2) Make sure it can be glued onto the back of the bag.

3) Glue just one side onto the back of the bag like so.

When you flip it around, you should have a flap.

4) Round the flap off it you like.

6) Glue on Velcro, making sure the Velcro on the flap matches up with the one on the bag.

Now it should look something like this.

 7) Time to decorate! I used upside down rhinestones on the bottom edge of the flap to look like metal studs. I also used some ribbon in the middle.

After that, you're done!

My doll's can't wait to use it!





See, school can be fun with an awesome backpack, right...right?

Posting Schedule Update

It's that time of year again when we go back to school. :( Since it is that time, I thought I would do a quick update on posting schedules, I know, boring, but it has to be done. I just got back from vacation so I will have a post about that soon and some back-to-school doll crafts. Like I usually do, I will not be posting (unless I can or have to) on Tuesdays because of my dance, and sometimes Thursday as well. Again, sorry if I haven't commented on people's posts, I need to catch up. :P So sorry for the quick and boring post, but I should have some more things coming soon.

Elizabeth Wears No. 19- Back to School

I know a lot of you are going back to school soon or already have, so I decided to do a school/fall outfit. I have just gotten into the leg warmer fad, and they are so cute, yet cozy! 

My sweater is perfect for late summer and fall, it keeps you warm, but not to hot, as it is not a thick material.


My leggings are SO comfy, and the color scheme is great with the light blue and purple on the sweater!
My leg warmers are meant for dance, but since everyone is wearing them, inside and outside the studio, it's okay that I stole them from Evelyn. :)

I LOVE moccasins, so I had to wear these ones that match the polka dots on my sweater perfectly!

My hair is really simple and perfect for the classroom with a plain down-the-back braid. It is really important to keep your hair out of your face if you are in the art room, science lab, or tech engineering.






As soon as we found a good spot, the kitty decided to kick (will push I guess) us out!

So, a mini photoshoot with him. :)


Lovely.


Outfit details:
Sweater- AG (i don't know what the outfit's called sorry!)
Leggings- AG Cozy Sweater Outfit (?)
