Easy DIY Blythe stand from coaster

Make your very own easy DIY “stick it up your jumper” Blythe stand.

I have a mix of Blythe and Blythe clone dolls. Not all of them came with stands. Therefore I looked into making my own. The simplest solution I came across was the “stick it up your jumper” approach. Literally. You use a wooden dowel and stick it up the back of the jumper or dress the doll is wearing. The bottom of the dowel needs to be stuck in something to keep it stable for this to work. I currently have 4 dolls. I spotted a packet of 4 wooden coasters in my local T.K. Maxx (aka T.J. Maxx to those in the US or Winners if your in Canada). Serendipity fueled inspiration. Instructions below for how to make your very own easy DIY Blythe stand.

One of the most basic patterns for any doll is the reversible dress. Alas my Google mojo failed to find me one sized for my LaLa. Oh woe betide. Armed with a ruler and my trusty french curve I battled for… well… at least a couple of hours. This war has now been won. Hopefully someone else will find it useful also.
