Bella Doll 1This special project for my niece was so much fun! After we made Bella's birthday cookies I throught it would be fun to make a mini plush version of her (a twin!) as a fun gift....

Bella Doll 3Here's how we made Bella's doll... First, I picked up a blank plush doll from Hobby Lobby. I painted it's scalp black and added yarn hair to match her cute bob. Then I painted a cute "swimsuit" and glitter shoes on the doll (all with fabric paint). Kinsey helped craft these adorable outfits. They are made with restyled fabrics and simply a tiny version of the outfit i bought for Bella. The bow and polka dots are painted on the fabric with Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Acrylic Paint (our new favorite paint). She loves The Wizard of Oz, so I snagged some red glitter shoes for her too. It was so much fun. We whipped this doll up in a couple days in our spare time at the shop!
