Make a Paper Lunch Bag for Your Doll

Avery Lane Sewing Blog Projects from Sew in Style Book and Doll size Paper bag tutorial

Clothing and accessories are sewing projects from the  sewing book for kids: Sew in Style, by Erin Hentzel

 

Isn’t this a cute scene? The dolls are just about to leave for school.  Lunch sacks, books, purse, and messenger bag allow for more creative and dramatic play.  Accessories are great fun to use during play time or setting the scene. The dolls are wearing the latest fashions, patterns from my new book: Sew in Style-Make Your Own Doll Clothes. A book designed for kids to learn to sew for their dolls. The purse and messenger bag projects are in the book, too!

How about a little craftiness? This craft tutorial takes very little time and looks great: A paper lunch sack for the 18 inch doll.

You’ll need:

  • paper
  • scissors
  • glue stick

 

Step 1

Cut paper so you have a piece of paper 9 1/4 inches by 5 3/4 inches (9 inches by 6 inches will also work).

Step 6

Fold the top edge down, making sure the top edge is past the center point. Fold the bottom edge on top of the folded top edge, make sure to fold the same amount as you folded the top edge. These should overlap.
