The Doll-Size Resource Guide To Summer Accessories

We’ve put together the ultimate resource guide to summer accessories for your doll!  From head to toe we’ve got your doll covered with fun accessory ideas for you to DIY or buy. 

Be sure to leave a comment at the bottom telling us which is your favorite summer accessory!

 

Summer Shoes

No outfit would be complete without a good pair of shoes!  The Clog Shoes would be perfect for backyard activities like gardening or badminton.  The Dollistocks shoe pattern are a great go to for playing hopscotch or chasing the ice cream truck down the street.  The Jelly Flats are a wonderful dressier, option for brunch or a birthday party.  Pixie Faire offers plenty of other shoe patterns for every occasion, but you can check out these ones for starters:

  

 

 

Summer Hats

Another fun summer accessory is a hat.  Hats are a summer must-have for warding off sunburns on those extra hot days.  The Lilli Sailor Cap conveys a sporty vibe whereas the Pheobe Hat is perfect for lounging around on a sunny beach.  The Happy Hats pattern is a great and fun basic that would look splendid in a bright colors and small prints.  You can use one of the following patterns to make one for your doll:

  

 

 

Summer Bags

There are plenty of places to go and things to see during the summertime, and to make sure your doll is prepared for every occasion make her a super stylish purse to bring along!  Most of these purses can be easily done with summery cotton prints to make a purse as unique as your doll!  Use one of the patterns listed (PS. the Sweet Scallops bag is free!):


  

 

Summer Jewelry

What would a summer outfit be without the perfect piece of jewelry to compliment it? You can make some basic necklaces or bracelets by stringing beads together, or try for something more detailed with one of these patterns:

  

 

 

Summer Hair Accessories

Hair accessories are always a lovely summer accent to add to any ensemble.  If you feel like making a fun DIY check out the Flower Crown from Pixie Faire!  Really on-trend hair accessories at the moment are bold and colorful claw clips (take a look at the Amazon link for ones that are the perfect scale for your doll).  Finally, you can never go wrong with a great headband as a summertime hair accessory, so take a look at our free tutorials and incorporate one into your dolls next hairstyle! 

  

 

So, that's our list! We hope this inspires you to add the perfect accessory to your dolls summer outfit!

Thanks, everyone!

I love the coke bottles. My father worked for Coke Cola, I loved it when he would give me quarters to put in the machine, open the door and I finally got big enough to pull the bottle out myself. Ice cold. The bottles brings back fond memories.

I love summer sandals and big floppy summer hats best because some of the others can be tweaked with different colors, materials or types of flowers and be Christmas themed so easily. Sandals and big floppy sunhats just scream summertime!
