How-To: No Sew Doll Clothes


After watching her daughter struggle to make clothes for her dolls using fabrics that wouldn’t hold the shapes that she wanted, Instructables member supersoftdrink decided to take action by making moldable fabric that can be used as no sew doll clothes.


Basically, the moldable fabric is made by the ingenious addition of beeswax to the fabric to make it hold its shape. This is a great project to keep in mind for lots of activities for kids.

Before you dismiss this as a silly girly activity… both genders enjoy playing with all sorts of toys, including clothes. Understanding how clothing fits together is a great life skill. Being able to see how a 2-D shape wraps around a 3-D object is also incredibly educational, and helps with spatial awareness. Understanding certain ways of manipulating substances and materials is also wonderful for kids and adults.

      Beeswax is used for most everyday items, I guarantee that you yourself own at least 5 things that contain it. Also beeswax doesn’t kill bees, pesticides do you ill informed swine.
