Triple Knot Hairstyle

This hairstyle is called the Triple Knot Hairstyle, and I learned how to do it here.  All you will need to do it on your doll is a couple bobby pins.  I use the Mini Goody pins.  Larger bobby pins may work too, however they will be harder to cover up.

This hairstyle is very easy, fast, and cute for summer!

Kidz n Cats Sundress and Braid Bun Hair

I sewed up a sundress for my Kidz and Cats doll out of a shirt.  The original top already had the shirring, so all I had to do was cut a rectangle and sew a seam on one side to make a tube.  The original top also had strings, which I cut and sewed to the sundress to make a halter top style.  I made a similar dress for my American Girl Doll here.  You can read about the matching flower headband in the pictures below there as well.

For this bun, I put the headband on first.  Afterwards, I took a section on each side from near the ear and braided it.  I then had two braids on each side, and a large lock of hair in the middle.  middle section of hair I twisted up into bun, securing it as I went with bobby pins.  Once I had the bun in place, I wrapped the braids around and pinned them.

Hairdos — Two Low Braids

Two low braids are so cute for a casual summer day!  You will need a doll hairbrush, two hair ties, and a spray bottle.  Let’s get started!

Begin with your doll’s hair down.DSCN4552Spray it with water so it is very slightly damp.  Separate it into two equal sections.  I didn’t need to brush out all my doll’s curls.DSCN4553Braid the two sections, positioning the braid so it begins just behind the ear.DSCN4554Finish with a small hair tie on each side.

Swimming at the Beach — A Photoshoot

Recently I picked up a cute girl’s swimsuit to upcycled into a doll swimsuit.  It was my first time making a swimsuit using my sewing machine, so my dolls get to keep this one!

The swim fabric has pairs of flip flops on it in many different colors.  I used the free swimsuit pattern on Pixie Faire here.  I didn’t fold the fabric twice over, just used the lining that was already in the girl’s swimsuit.  I used white fold over elastic to finish the edges.

The blue shorts I upcycled from a girl’s rashgaurd.  I used this pattern on Pixie Faire.  These shorts are super quick and you don’t even need elastic!

I got the pink little water shoes from Sophia’s.  You can see them here.  I did realize they have cardboard insoles which came unglued when they got wet.  I will probably cut new insoles from craft foam and put them in the shoe instead.

You can read how I made the flower hair clip here.

On to the photos!
