School's Out! Barbie Summer Crafts Round-Up

So the kid's excitement of school ending in June, and the anticipation of July 4th festivities has passed, and I'm guessing you may be hearing "I'm bored" right about now:@) I thought I'd put together a hodge-podge of easy Barbie craft ideas, most are no sew, and several would even be good group projects for a birthday party or sleepover. I'll add lots of links, and you can always stop by my Pinterest Board to see everything I've made. Or maybe let the kids scroll through the board themselves, they can pick out a project or two that catches their eye. 

I'll start with the easiest idea,
this No-Sew, No-Hem Sundress literally comes together in seconds.
And I love that we're recycling an old tank top!

Here are links for two more tutorials for no-sew tops, a Handkerchief Top and Swing Top:

Another inexpensive craft idea is using balloons... How to make a Barbie Top or Kelly Halter Dress:

I made a couple shirts using a whole balloon... No real instructions, I think you can get the idea from the pics. Love the one sleeve look:@)

If your girl is a little older and wants to learn to sew, I have a picture tutorial showing how to make a Barbie Dress from a 6" Square of Fabricor a cute little Pillow Case Type Dress with Ribbon Tie (fits Curvy Barbie too):

And of course Barbie is all about the accessories😉 Some of my favorite projects are recycling things headed to the trash bin into something fun and useful... And pretty!
How to make a Boho Handbag and Unicorn Headband:

And if there's a Barbie in your life, there's probably a Ken too... No-Hem Tank Top and Long Shorts/Bathing Suit patterns:

There you have a few ideas folks, just a little something to help the kids fill some time and stay busy. My Barbie Craft Index is HERE, and Barbie Pinterest Board Here.

🌞Make something just for fun and,
Have a great summer😎
