Barbie Pajamas

Start off with two pieces of fabric about 7.5 x 4.5 inches each. These are the 

Pin the edges.

Sew the edges.

Fold each leg in half inside out.

Sew the two edges together, but not all the way because you need
 some room for the Barbie's bum and waist. I sewed along the edge until the the pins.

Sew together the open flaps to sew the two legs together.

Get a piece of elastic and fold the fabric over it.

Pin and sew along the edge of the flap and be careful not to sew the
piece of elastic.

Cut a little hole so both the ends of the elastic stick out.

Pull the elastic until it fits the Barbie's waist.

Sew the elastic so it stays the shape you want it.

You are now done with the pants!

For the shirt, start with a piece of fabric that is
about 6.25 x 3.5 inches long.

Pin and sew all the edges.

Sew a piece of ribbon along the top of the shirt.

Add Velcro to the back.

Pin and sew two pieces of ribbons for the straps.

Now you are done!

Barbie Sofa

This is the website where I got the idea to make this.
You start off with this layout if you're not using foam but cardboard.(That is all I had)

First, you hot glue the legs to the base.

Then you cover the base and legs with fabric using a hot glue gun.

Make sure to glue stuffing under the fabric on the base to make it soft.(If you want)

Then you hot glue the base to the base and legs.

Hot glue stuffing to the back.

Then cover the back by hot glueing fabric around it.

Then cover the arms with fabric and hot glue to the base and back one at a time.

Then you are finished!!

I added a little more. I made some pillows and set it up in the barbie house living room. I draped a blanket over the back to add a nice touch.

Here is a barbie enjoying the new addition to her house!

15 Minute Barbie Dress

Start off with a piece of fabric that is about 7.5 x 6.6 inches.

Sew along all the edges.

Wrap around the Barbie inside out and pin. Then
sew from the bottom edge of the dress to the Barbie's bum.

Then get two small pieces of ribbon  and pin where you want them.

Sew them on.

Turn the dress right side out and attach Velcro to the back.

You are now finished! (I tied a piece of ribbon around the waist.)
