I have been dabbling with dye to create doll sized projects! (How’s that for an alliteration! HA!) I’ve discovered how fun Rit Dye is! This simple headband is made out of color coordinating fabrics. The cool part is that I took plain black and white fabric scraps and dyed them to all color coordinate!

I am dyeing up a storm at my house. It all started with a challenge to the Doll Diaries Team Members, to create doll sized projects with Rit Dye. I took the challenge! I am excited to share two projects this week, one here on Doll It Up and one at Doll Diaries! The project ideas are soon to come, but I decided to create a post that touches on dyeing doll sized projects, to share what I’ve learned so far! If you are a newbie, like me, I hope it takes some of the mystery out of the process and sparks your imagination to the endless possibilities at hand!
Cool Things I Discovered About Rit Dye
- Colors, colors, and more colors! Seriously, seemingly endless color combinations all at your fingertips at the ColoRit Color Formula Guide. Check it out! I dare you to find your favorite color! It’s there!

- Experiments allowed! Read the instructions and then create! You will soon see that this process is so easy and forgiving! Follow a few simple tips and you really can’t go wrong!
Now for some doll sized dying!
Let’s take a look at what we’ll need.
Decorating mini stockings is a great craft this time of year. You can’t go wrong with a plain stocking and a few embellishments! It will be transformed into something fun and fabulous!
Today I’m dressing up plain stockings with colorful buttons. It’s so simple and I’m loving the bold beautiful color when you bring buttons together!
Are you looking for fun little ornaments to make for your doll tree? I know I am! Today I’m participating in The Adorable Little Ornaments Linky Party, that is bringing together a whole host of mini ornaments created by different bloggers.

Each year everyone in the family gets a new ornament. It’s a tradition that I grew up with and the last few years it has a new twist! The ornaments are homemade! It is really fun to get out those homemade ornaments and hang them on the tree each year! They have become our favorites!
It seems that this year the tradition has taken yet another twist…to the dollhouse! This year’s ornament is quick and easy to make and so I decided to include the dolls in on it!
