DIY Fabric Paper Dolls

The panel includes the castle (outside of the bag), bed and wardrobe (inside of the bag), a princess, a frog prince, a crown, 2 hats 8 dresses and sewing instructions. I was able to make the whole set in under 2 hours and I'm so happy with how it came out!


Everything stows away neatly inside so it's a great toy to bring along to church, road trips, etc.


Changes I made to the fabric paper dolls:

  • Sewed a flannel nightie onto the princess so her clothes would stick
  • Used ribbon for the handles instead of fabric (I like a quick shortcut!)
  • Added a small piece of velcro to the princess's head and her crown/hats
  • Sewed all the way around the edge of each piece to secure the layers together (I didn't have the double sided interfacing called for on-hand)


Have fun sewing something special for your little princess! I hope you enjoyed these DIY Fabric Paper Dolls!
