Native American Doll Clothing
Native American Doll Clothing can be made from simple and easily available material like plain brown lunch bags. Your 18″ doll will be ready to participate in the Thanksgiving festivities in her new outfit.
Three Lunch Bags
Iron and Adult
Crumple up three paper lunch bags. Open them up and crumple again. Continue until the bags are soft and pliable. Iron the bags flat. This will take out the wrinkles but give a leather texture to the bags.
To make the vest, cut one paper bag in half. Cut up the middle of the bag and onto the bottom. Cut out a hole for the neck and one for each arm. Shape the front of the vest with a "V" neck. Cut 1/2" slits all around the bottom every 1/4" to make fringe.
Cut the bottom 2" off a second paper bag. Fringe the bottom. Slip it up to the doll's chest and tie a piece of cord around her waist to hold the skirt in place.
To make the shoes cut two ovals 4" x 6". Gather them around the feet over the ankles. Tie a cord around the ankles.
Cut a 1/2" band for the doll's head. Glue into a loop. Glue on a feather. Use the remaining cord to wrap the doll's hair.
