Build this carry-along Matilda’s Closet Caddy constructed of PVC pipe, including optional divider inserts to help you organize all of your doll’s favorite shoes & accessories!

 

Description

Create a carry-along doll clothing closet from PVC pipe for storing your doll’s favorite outfits, complete with extra space to stash shoes, hats, purses and other favorite accessories!

This PDF project plan includes instructions for building a lightweight, easy-to-carry, free-standing closet from PVC pipe. The 18-inch hanging rod provides ample room to hang several outfits using doll-sized hangers that fit a 1/2-inch rod. Instructions are also included to adapt the frame to fit hangers requiring a slightly smaller rod diameter by substituting CPVC pipe for the hanging rod.

In addition to the closet frame, instructions include pattern pieces and step-by-step photos to guide the confident beginning sewist through construction of the fabric caddy at the base of the closet. Options include a separate base insert to lend stability, as well as a sewn-in, “invisible” version for the more advanced sewist. Also included are optional dividers attached with hook-and-loop tape. Make as few or as many dividers as you wish and rearrange them in whatever manner works best to organize all of your doll’s essentials!

Matilda’s Closet Caddy would make a handy display tool for craft fairs and trade shows, as well as a great gift for the doll-lovers in your life!

    Modified Closet Caddy

    This is a cute pattern. The fabric portion was easy and it went together quickly. I measured all the pattern pieces and used a rotary cutter and a cutting mat. Preparing the PVC took a long time. I spray-painted the pieces black and there were a lot of pieces to spray but protect the inside and the ends from overspray. Then I got to the assembly part and it was IMPOSSIBLE for me to put the upper rectangle (the one with the 4-way pieces) on, with the fabric and all. I ended up cutting off the tabs, opening the lining seam and inserting velcro to attach to the PVC pieces. Cost was about $30 for the PVC alone, but I am happy with the result. Next time, I’ll make a longer one (with more space for hangers). I’ll also only spray-paint the bottom pieces before assembly and spray-paint the top portion when it is assembled. I like how the caddy looks and it will be great for displaying a bunch of doll clothes.
