  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Needle and thread

How to Make Soft Muslin Doll:

Step 1: Fold the muslin in half. Draw a cookie-cutter doll shape on the muslin. Cut out the shape; you should have 2 pieces.

Step 2: Sew pieces together leaving 3 inches open at the top of the head. Cut a slit to the seam at the armpits, neck, and between the legs.

Step 3: Turn the fabric inside out. Stuff it with cotton batting. Sew the head closed.

Step 4: Use fabric paint to draw on the face. Sew on yarn for the hair. Make an outfit for your doll from felt.

The next sewing craft will put dreams in your head and above your bed.
