DIY Gift: Barbie Sewing Studio

For the little seamstress...
Supplies: Binder,  adhesive, scrapbook paper/items, scrap fabric, accessories.


Christmas is my favorite time to make gifts for my loved ones. Being a mother of boys, I always go all-out-girly for the little gal in my life, my niece. I have made her plenty of special things to wear and decided I wanted to completely surprise her. She LOVES Barbie, so what better gift from her designer auntie then a sewing studio?


Complete with a sewing machine that was mine when I was little, mini dress form, a couple handmade outfits...


Little inspiration boards...and furniture. 


The outside...


This project was way too much fun...I sewed the fabric right on the paper.


I used images from magazines as the photos and the frames were a scrap paper set.  I applied everything with a hot glue gun and permanent spray adhesive.

  1. This reminds me of a beauty salon my friend's older sister made me for my Barbie when I was really young. It wasn't as detailed and structured as this but it was still impressive, especially for her as she was a teenager at the time. Wish I kept it!
