Swaddled Newborn for Barbie -DIY From Wooden Bead and Felt

While I've been having fun with the Barbie baby I bought at Walmart, I'd guess he's around 9 months to a year old. I wanted to make a newborn and simply used a large wooden bead for the head and some felt for the blanket. Since it's a newborn I planned to have the baby turned towards the doll, so I wouldn't have to worry about a face. This is a quick project that kids can make for themselves and it turned out cute!


Supplies:
Large wooden bead, mine is a 1 1/4" oval, it could be smaller, and it could be round
3" square of felt for blanket
1" x 5" strip of felt to roll up for body
Glue, I used a hot glue gun

Tightly roll strip of felt up to create the baby's body, glue edge so it doesn't unravel.
Glue body to bead.

Center bead in corner of blanket and glue in place.

Bring bottom corner of blanket up over body and glue to body.

Bring corner of blanket across body, slightly covering face, and glue to side of body.

Wrap second corner over body, slightly covering face, and wrapping around side of body, glue in place.
Wa-la, you've created one snuggly wrapped newborn baby!
