I love paper dolls! I had several sets when I was small, and I loved to imagine stories for each doll. I loved having all kinds of fashions right at my fingertips. The only thing I didn’t love about my paper dolls was how easily they would rip. New products now make it possible to have a long-lasting, durable, fabric paper doll.
Each of my paper dolls can now be printed on printable, ink-jet fabric, fused onto a flannel backing with fusible webbing, and voila! It’s a paper doll that won’t tear. If it gets wrinkled, it can simply be ironed back into shape.
I’ve created these three sets of paper dolls starting with my own, unique clothing designs, which are modest and tasteful for children’s play time, but also chic and modern. Each doll comes with 3-4 outfits. You can choose from two teenage girls, Lisa and Claire, and a teenage boy, Scott. Or make all three doll sets! They make the perfect quiet toy. Plus, they’re a fun item for adult collectors who love paper dolls as much as I do. This pattern also includes instructions to make the optional carrying pouch.
For 1 set of fabric paper dolls (there are 3 sets in the booklet):
1 sheet 8 1/2” x 11” printable ink-jet fabric (cotton works best)
8 1/2” x 11” piece of Wonder Under or other fusible webbing
8 1/2” x 11” piece of solid-colored (light color) flannel
Seed beads, hot-fix crystals or other small trim for embellishment (optional)
Sticky-back Velcro (optional)
MATERIALS NEEDED TO MAKE THE
OPTIONAL CARRYING POUCH:
2 pieces 10” x 12” cotton fabric. These can be the same color or coordinating prints
1” piece of hook and loop tape
Ruler, seam gauge
6-8” ribbon remnant (optional)
MAKING TRADITIONAL PAPER DOLLS:
If you prefer to make traditional paper dolls, or don’t want to try the printable fabric, simply print out the dolls from this booklet on heavy paper. Cut them out and laminate them. Then use either clear tape loops or sticky-back Velcro between the doll and the clothes to help keep the clothes on the doll and store them in an envelope.
