Hi Everyone! Welcome to the organization themed topic of doll clothes storage! I'm sure this is something that has challenged us all! I've tried many different storage options over the years, and as my collection of tiny garments has grown, I've been challenged to optmize and discover new ideas to keep it all nicely organized. I'm excited to share the things that I've discovered and am also excited to be joined by Donna and Shari as they share a few tips too!

Doll Clothes Storage Topic Overview:
This month, we will look at several ways to store and organize your "Fashion in Miniature" clothing items. The topic will be divided into a 4-part series:
The Dress Form Sew Along
Ok, now let's jump into the sew-along! Follow along as I show you how to sew the 18" doll size Dress Form. This pattern is probably one of the most popular patterns on Pixie Faire. The dress forms are perfectly proportioned to fit 13" to 18" doll clothes. It is fast and easy to make and a fun way to display some of your favorite doll outfits.The pattern available as a bundle or in separate sizes. If you don't have it yet, then this is the pattern we recommend you use this months coupon code for!
This project is super easy to sew and can be made from a variety of non-stretch fabrics. I'm using a custom printed fabric that I had made through Spoonflower. It's a nice quality Kona Cotton. You can use vibrant prints or something more subtle and classic like an unbleached cotton. The choice is yours!
A Few Notes on Supplies:
The fabric, felt, and poly-fil stuffing are all fairly easy to find (or something you might already have on hand).
The acrylic gems can usually be found in the floral department at your local craft store. Here's a link to them on Etsy or you can paint a 1" wooden ball (also available at a local craft store or online.
Hot glue gun: After recording this video and being frustrated with my super shot cord and unstable glue gun/cardboard stand, I came across this genius cordless glue gun. I ordered it immediately, but don't actually have it yet. I thought I'd mention it anyway, just in case any of you have the same frustration! Lynn Lilly Edition Mini Cordless Glue Gun
Ok, now it's your turn! This is such a fun and easy project to make! It's a great storage prop to have in your studio or in any room of the house! I hope you'll jump in and create one, or several, today!
