Dolls Baby Sling

August 17, 2014

It’s the summer holidays, which means the children have lots more time for playing at home. It has not escaped my daughters attention that she has three baby dolls, one in a supermarket trolly, and one in a pushchair – how is she going to transport baby no three??? A dolls baby sling, what else?!

A quick search of the internet revealed a fab, quick and easy tutorial for a dolls baby sling, coupled with fabric from a recent donation I was set.

Admittedly making the sling did take slightly longer than her expectations of five minutes, but to be fair I was delighted with a twenty minute make:)

As my daughter is older than the average girl requesting a baby sling I made it 3″longer which seems to have worked fine. The eagle eyed amongst you will realise that I probably should consider making some baby clothes!!

Currently the three baby’s are lined up watching the telly, suspect the baby in a sling is not getting a clear view… Not sure it’s missing much!

Hope you are managing to fit some creativity in:) As usual I am hopping by Handmade Harbour to see what everyone else’s week has been like,

    The sling looks fab but I really love your daughters smile. She looks so pleased with the sling. You must be the worlds greatest Mum today. I expect the dolls are going to have to take it in turns to have a go. Have a lovely week.

    I love handmade doll accessories, the ones you can buy in the shops are always so poorly made and expensive. This is a lovely idea.
    My daughter is too old for this sort of thing now (I make her camera accessories nowadays) but I have lots of little nieces who would love this.
