Little girls love to copy their Mummy! So when a new baby comes along they love to play with their baby dolls. I can remember my Little Miss taking her baby doll everywhere with us when Mr Happy was born.
When my friend B from BBeingCool had her Baby Cool, her older girls were so excited. When she made herself a baby sling, she used the left over fabric to make one for her girls.
My Little Miss found their baby doll sling when we went to play this week. She loved it so much that she immediately wanted me to make her one. So being school holidays (and a super easy project that took about 5 minutes!) I did.
What you’ll need:
- a strip of stretchy fabric, like interlock or jersey, about 25cm wide (This fabric doesn’t fray so you don’t need to finish the edges)
What to do:
- Cut your strip to size. It should be the width of your fabric so about 115cm long and about 25cm wide. Some fabrics are 150cm wide which is fine too.
- Optional: Trim the ends with pinking shears to make pretty zigzags. They don’t need it to stop fraying – just for prettiness!
- Tie the ends together to make a circle
- Try it on your Little Miss and adjust the length if needed
- Add baby doll
Do your kids play at being like Mummy too?
