Doll Clothes - Beginning Sewing Project

Sewing simple clothes for a doll or stuffed animal can be a great craft project for very young children. My daughter sewed both of these dresses, for the monkey Grandma knitted, when she was four years old. I cut out a tank-top shaped simple dress out of fleece (felt would be a great material too), then helped her thread the needle and create knots so she could sew up the sides and shoulders. Then she "fancied them up"; one with a bead, and the other with a ribbon.

  3. That is a cute idea. I imagine kids would feel very proud to look at their dolls and stuffed animals dressed in their home sewn clothes!
