DIY Doll Makeup Bag

There are several cute cosmetic and travel bags available for your dolls. All the brands including American Girl, Our Generation, My Life As and Journey Girls has released similar style bags. However, if you haven’t purchased any of the sets that includes the bags, you may be missing out! Your doll needs something to keep her personal items organized especially when going on a trip! Or, even if you have a bag or two from a set, you may need a few more for organization! This is a simple craft, but it does involve hot glue, so have an adult around! You shouldn’t ever be touching the hot glue or even wiping off the excess with your fingers, so you should be safe from burns!

A few tips since making this:

When creating the placement for the zipper, it should go directly center. This means actually placing it off to the side a little bit before wrapping(you’ll understand after watching the video) so when the back overlaps slightly it’s centered.

Always reinforce the inside top and bottom with an extra later of hot glue once the first layer has cooled.

Materials Needed:

Watch and tell us what you use for your cosmetics or toiletries when you travel!

    I was wondering where you got your cosmetic items. They are so cute. Love your videos.

    Thank you,

    Hi Rudy,

    Thanks so much for doing these crafts! Me and My daughter Claire love doing these! So far we have done every single one of your DIYs and sold it so we could donate to the animal shelters. Could you make a small building for an animal shelter? We also live at a farm so a doll horse stable would be nice. Thanks so much!

    That nail polish is adorable! Is it a craft?
