Paper Doll Case

I recently went shopping for birthday presents for my daughter's 4th birthday.  I found these adorable paper dolls that I really wanted to get her.

However, knowing that paper doesn't last very long around my house, I had to come up with a way to make them more child friendly. My friend, Stephanie, suggested that I make a felt case for them. I took the idea and ran with it and this is what I came up with.

Princess Paper Doll Case

It's a princess fabric on the outside and felt on the inside. I made pockets out of vinyl and used quilt binding on all the edges. The whole thing folds up to be about the size of a book.

I laminated the paper dolls and put a little piece of the hook side of velcro on the backs of each of the princesses. Then to change the outfits I bought some repositionable double sided tape.

It may have been a bit time consuming but it turned out amazing! I will probably be making more of these in the future!
