The Barbie doll was invented in 1959 by Ruth Handler and soon it became one of the most famous toys for girls all around the world. Since its release, a billion Barbie dolls have been manufactured. The original Barbie doll was eleven inches tall and had blond hair. She also wore a black and white zebra striped swimsuit. It was the first mass-produced toy doll in the United States with adult features.
However, one of the things children always wanted to the most with a Barbie has always been changing her clothes. You can buy almost any type of Barbie clothes and accessory in a store, but wouldn’t it be much more fun to make your own? Also, Barbie clothes are notoriously expensive. The tiny pieces of clothing are an absolute necessity for any child that loves their doll, even though they often lose them or misplace them. Instead of spending an abundance of money at the toy store, you can easily make custom clothes at home for your child’s favorite Barbie doll.
In this tutorial, posted by famous blogger Paula Stephâniaon from Rio De Janerio, Brazil, you will learn how to create your own Barbie’s clothes. And even shoes!
