Audience: This program has been created to teach you how to make fashionable doll clothing using babies' clothing and simple shapes. It also teaches creative thinking and practical skills for all ages. (Note, that the use of a sewing machine is not essential for this program.)
Contents: There are several volumes published in the Be Crafty Series containing different sets of dolls' fashion projects. This is Vol. 1. It has two parts. Part 1 teaches you how to make T-shirts, nightshirts and mini dresses. Then, how to transform an elastic waist skirt for your doll. Next is a no-sew blanket, followed by two projects for little brothers and sisters, while you do the sewing, also ideas about where to get inspiration from for your projects, and then finally tips and practical demonstrations on how to alter dresses. Part 2 is the fashion show, including Girls Night, Ballerina, Summer Camp and Birthday Party. Enjoy... The programs are designed to entertain the children while watching the dolls. Olivia, Isabelle and Molly help Marti with her fun designs. Marti shows how to modify baby and children’s clothing to fit your 18” doll. The instructions are clear, and easy to follow as every step is shown in detail in the video. She also uses very simple shapes, like the circle, the rectangle, and the square, as well as everyday items to make them into dolls’ clothing and interesting accessories. The Be Crafty Series encourages cooperation between generations using creativity as the bond.
Suggested Viewing: Play full Part 1 video first, then watch the Fashion Show in Part 2, and then chose your project from Part 1.
