Use your cricut maker or cricut explore machine to make doll clothes sewing faster, easier and more precise.
This post includes affiliate links. Please read my POLICY here. I’ve been a cricut user since the very first “baby bug” machine came out. Cricut sure has come a long way since then! Don’t know what I’m referring to? Check out this LINK to see what a cricut machine is.
Use your cricut machine to cut out cute designs and make your own graphic tee shirts and outfits for your dolls! Boy and girl dolls alike love tees with clever sayings and personalization. I find that heat transfer vinyl is much quicker and easier than using my embroidery machine! With a subscription to Cricut Access, I have thousands of designs at my fingertips that can be resized to doll scale with a push of a button. You can create your own logos from graphics, with shapes, or select something ready for you from the extensive graphics library. See more detailed instructions in this POST and this one. I made the pink snowflake shirts with my little Cricut Joy machine. You can do this type of project on any size machine, but you may want to consider the lower priced Joy to see if this is a craft you enjoy.
Luciana’s Easy Up! Jumper has a great surface for a fun message or other design. Below, I tried a pink holographic iron on (HTV) to match the pink shirt. It’s so shimmery in person. There are so many colors and types of HTV on the market right now, it’s easy and fun to customize your own doll tee shirts!
