ClothesPin Doll Tutorial

I hope you have all had a wonderful day! It has been 70 degrees here today and we sure took advantage of it. We grilled out at Mom and Dad's and then I came home and did some chores outside. I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial on how to make clothespin dolls.


Old wood Clothespin

stained muslin

other fabric for apron and bonnet


Begin by tearing your muslin into a 6 x 4 inch piece; fold it in half and sew up the short side. Turn inside out and sew a gathering stitch on the long edge. Place around the clothespin at the fat end and pull tight and tie off. Rip a piece about 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 for your apron and tie around the waist. Tear a small rectangle for the bonnet and tie a string around it. Enjoy!
