Have I shared with y’all how I feel about baby dolls?  I looove baby dolls.  My girls have several, but the Waldorf dolls are the most special.

 When I made Ellie’s Toddler Back Pack I decided her dolly needed a matching one, and that’s how this Dolly Back Pack was born.  This backpack will fit many different kinds of dolls because the straps are elastic.  And, since I know you’re going to ask, Ellie’s beautiful dolly is a 12″ Waldorf doll from Handmaiden Canada :-).

Let’s get sewing!

First fold the outer fabric as shown:

 Ok, the elastic above is sewn incorrectly.  The top sides of the elastic should be closer together, because if they are this far apart they won’t stay on.  Oops!  

See how the elastic is sewn so the stitches are hidden?

And that’s it!  Now put it on your dolly and she’ll be ready for anything!

Ellie’s backpack carries her Epipen, Benadryl, and an allergy safe snack.  Her dolly’s backpack carries a small pretend Epipen, in case she comes in contact with unicorn dust (her allergy!)

As you can see, she loves her dolly, her backpack, and her dolly backpack!  Visit me at Alida Makes to find the tutorial for the toddler backpack, or just to say hi!
