Thread Starter 

Upon browsing some forums, I had been seeing great pictures of kids wearing their dolls and I also want that one for my DD.

My DD is 16 months, in this age she is already have a blue elmo as her baby..lol She even copies me when I carry her until she is asleep. blush.gif She loves being in our Action Baby carrier so I want to make her a carrier to use so she can where her dolls.

Do you know any styles that I can use to make one? or place I can find these carriers? how much? Thanks in advance!!!

I imagine to make a doll-carrying-doll carrier, you'd just need to scale down any of the above patterns to match the doll's measurements.  For simplicity, you might choose a kesen or kanga style cloth, such as the ones popular in east Africa: http://site.peppermint.com/kikoyInst.htm, that way you just need a rectangle.
