INFORMATION ABOUT MAKING DRESS UP TONY
'There's more than one way to skin a Cat'
We’ve learnt a lot since we released our Daisy Doll – what I’d imagined the Doll would be used for, and what you clever Ladies ‘actually’ used the Doll for was amazing.
I RECOMMEND YOU READ THE DRESS UP DAISY BLOG AND WATCH KAYS STEP BY STEP VIDEO, BEFORE YOU MAKE DRESS UP TONY
This will help you decide what type of Fabrics you will use
In ‘real life’ many Ladies strengthened Daisy to make her more robust for little fingers.
- For my Tony Doll, I used thin batting and cotton fabric on the front of the doll, and Bag Batting as my BACKING Fabric. I was really happy with how sturdy the Doll and clothes were. I suspect a heavy felt would do a similar job
I used this Bag Batting from Echidna as the backing for my Tony
Google Matildas Own Bag Batting for stockists near you
- In Kays videos, she uses a combination of cutaway and batting on the front of the doll, and cotton fabric with iron on interfacing front and back
- Using a combination of vinyl, with felt on the back may be another option
There is no right or wrong way to make the Dress Up Doll - it is personal preference
