Baby Bump for Barbie from Plastic Easter Egg -DIY Pregnant Barbie

Sometimes girls want to recreate or role play what's going on around them and they may want to have a Barbie with a baby bump... I thought I'd post this while we're getting out our Easter decorations, and plastic Easter eggs are still at the stores, because I used the round end from a little 1 3/4" egg. This is an easy project that only takes a minute as you'll see below.

 The hardest part may be finding clothes that fit over the bump! 

But a lot of the newer skirts are looser and do work well.

This works for Curvy Barbie too:

Cut the sides of the egg apart.

 Run a 4 1/2" piece of thin elastic through the two holes in the round side of the egg, tie knot in elastic.
Slip it over Barbie's hips.
If you don't have elastic you can use ribbon and tie it around the doll's waist.

Easy peasy...

DIY Pregnant Barbie๐Ÿ˜Ž
Not just good for girl's play, it can add to our pictures and dioramas too.
I mentioned that, foolishly, I passed on a perfect pregnant Midge doll here... 
$2 and I walked away... ugh.
๐ŸผMake something just for fun and have a happy day๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. LOL....can you imagine how many Christmas Babies there will be this year!!!! This is fun!

    1. Hello, I was hoping it might be a fun idea:@)

  2. what a great idea to have the barbie yet again relate to real life thanks for sharing
    come see us at

  3. You have made my little girl the happiest three year old on the planet. She has been wanting a “big baby belly Barbie” and I have to admit that I was scratching my head on how to accomplish that. I love how simple (and free!) this was and she loves that she can pick which doll she wants to wear it. I already foresee a lot of DIY doll maternity clothes requests in my future! It’s the day after Christmas and the thing she’s most excited about is the bottom of an old Easter egg and an upcycled piece of elastic! I’m looking forward to reading more on your blog and making some more fun Barbie crafts with my daughter. Thanks for the inspiration!
