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!!!

Tagging onto this, does anyone know of patterns for making a sling or carrier for a stuffed animal or doll to carry another (smaller) stuffed animal or doll?

This one has doll mei tais for $16-18: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CmommyCreations?section_id=7633686

 

Liesl Gibson's book Oliver + s: Little Things to Sew (http://www.amazon.com/Oliver-Little-Things-Sew-Accessories/dp/1584799102/ref=la_B004FR2WS2_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1347160648&sr=1-1) has a pattern for a crotch dangling Bjorn-style teddy bear carrier that you could modify to make an Ergo-style carrier.

 

Here's a free pattern for a doll sling: http://www.getcreativeshow.com/Crafting_Sewing_Conference_Center/craft_sewing_seminars/doll_sling.htm

 

Here's a free pattern for a wrap-strap mei tai (like a Maya Tie) that you could scale down using your child's measurements:http://thosemartins.com/bmt/

 

Here's a free pattern for a no-sew fleece mei tai that you could scale down: http://www.wearyourbaby.org/Default.aspx?tabid=118

 

And here are instructions for a hemp jersey wrap that you could scale down: http://thosemartins.com/bmt/wraps.htm

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.
