Karen Mom of Three's Dolly Craft Blog Dolly Summer School

Welcome to the first Wednesday addition of our Craft Blog Summer School. As you may have heard that Char has decided to retire the Doll Diaries Website. We are wishing her all the best in her new adventures and hope that you will enjoy our weekly  Dolly Craft Summer School.  On Wednesdays now through the summer our team here will post that is related to crafty doll play and that we hope will keep you crafting through the summer and have you well on your way to be prepared for the up coming holiday gift giving season.  Each week will have a different theme and feature a tutorial, links to a pattern or activity for you to enjoy and create for the doll lover in your life. We hope you will join us!
This week's Theme Is Summer Fun! Please see below for links to some great Summer Themed Activities you can make this week for your dolls!
