Fantastic Barbie Closet


If a picture is worth a thousand words, this is going to save me a lot of writing.
I found this pink trunk at Hobby Lobby.

On the deep side, I added tension rods for hanging clothes.

On the shallow side I used heavy duty Velcro to attach storage.
 The shoes are in the round plastic holders that are usually used for beads.  The plastic bins hold accessories and a larger bead box accommodates boots.  Hats are hung in jewelry bags using Command hooks.
As you can see, I have been busy sewing for my Barbie Nation.  I still have lots of things to hang up, but I am running out of room.  I may have to make another smaller "closet" for the evening wear and coats.

  6. Wow! This is amazing, thank you so much for sharing.
    I've always wanted a proper "wardrobe" for my Barbie clothes, rather than just a box. Is it OK if I copy this (with a few adjustments) for myself? :)
    Well done, you should be proud of your work. This is awesome!

  7. Can you tell me where you purchased the tension rods for the clothes? The Barbie hangers are so so small and I have searched high and low but can't find the rods! Thanks!
