How to do Swedish Braids

Today, I (Kirsten) am going to show you how to do Swedish braids.  I wear these all the time since I'm Swedish.  They may look complicated to do, but they are actually quite easy.  These work best on dolls with long hair, but you can still try it if you have shorter hair.

First, split your hair in half and make two braids on the sides of your head.

Now, this is the part that can get complicated so pay attention.  You will find there is a little "hole" underneath the braid.  (Where the finger is.)

Tuck the end of the braid in the hole and shove upward until it will stay in place by itself.  Repeat on the other side.

It will look like this.  Then take some ribbon and tie in a bow around the braid at about the top of the ear.

You just did Swedish braids! 

Have fun wearing them,

Make Some Cozy Slippers!

Hey all!  It's this time of year when you just want to curl up and stay warm.  (Well, that's what we want to do at least.)  So, to help you get even warmer, I'm going to show you how to make some cozy slippers!

You Will Need:
-Hot Glue Gun

First, cut two strips about an inch wide and fold in half.

Then, measure around your doll's foot and trim the ends where the toes begin.

Trace your foot on some cardboard and cut four.

Fold your fleece in half, then lay one of the cardboard pieces on top and trace the upper part like the picture above.  Cut out with an extra 1/4-1/2 inch around.

Cut out four fleece soles with an extra 1/4-1/2 inch around.  Cover the cardboard soles and hot glue on the bottom.

Take your half of the shoe part of fleece and cover the top of one of the fleece soles.  Hot glue in the back.

Hot glue your sides to the side of the sole.
Hot glue another sole to the back, cardboard sides together.   Cut two more strips of fleece about a 1/2 inch wide and wrap around the shoe where the two soles meet to give the slipper a more clean, finished look.

Ta-da!  Your done already!  Now curl up with  a good book, some hot chocolate, a fuzzy blanket, and some cozy slippers!

Enjoy the hot chocolate!
