Doll Hangers - Easy to Make




Did you know that doll hangers are more expensive than their life-size counterparts? Who knew? Did you know that regular American Girl Hanger are too big for Wellie Wisher Clothes?  So, I carefully made my own and they were easier than I thought. Maybe you would like to make some....
     1.  Download the PDFs file from here:
          Hanger pattern
          The exact size of the hanger is 3.998" x 2.395"


The link will give you a downloadable JPG pattern and a SVG pattern.  If you have a Cricut or other cutting machine and you know how to upload an SVG pattern, go for it.

I uploaded the SVG pattern in the Cricut Design Space software on my computer.  Then, I sized it to the exact measurements listed above.  I copied it once, flipped it and turned it upside down to get the most out of a sheet, I attached both images so they acted as a unit.  I hit the cut button. Be sure to select as many copies as you want.

To prepare the material, I glued a patterned card stock to a piece of a cereal box. If you can't tell, this is a Captain Crunch box.

It doesn't seem to matter which side of the box you glue the card stock on to. I used a plain old glue stick.

If you are cutting by hand, you get to trace and cut out the pattern.  If you are using a Cricut, place the glued Cereal/cardstock sheet onto a cutting mat.

It is important to use a Deep Cutting Blade and set your dial to Poster Board Plus.



Be advised, that the Cricut will cut each design twice when choosing this setting.  Cut out as many pairs as you need.



Glue each pair together.



Use paper clips, quilting clips, or clothes pins to hold both sides together while they dry,



This hanger will balance nicely on a 1/2" diameter dowel rod.


Good Luck!!
