The following suggestions for doll clothing storage are aimed at protecting sensitive items from dirt and deterioration. Because we love to display our mementos, the first suggestion is to try not to handle them.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

Many things are damaged from the oils on ones fingers. Coins are a good illustration. Coin collectors prefer to store the coins in plastic transparent containers. If they have to handle the coins, they wear white, clean, cotton gloves. The gloves coin collectors use are great for touching antique or vintage dolls and their clothing.

Display cases of glass are good options for displaying fully dressed dolls of all kinds. The glass will keep the dust off and still allow one to observe your cherished possessions on a frequent basis.

Dolls and clothing that will not be shown should be stored in airtight containers if at all possible. Large ziploc bags are a good option. The bags work also for storing small dolls, accessories, and clothing that youngsters handle on a regular basis. A number of dolls have wardrobes designed specifically for storing their clothing. Barbie is an example. The Barbie grouping has multiple pieces of furniture. Even though your kids might see them as toys, they help to keep little pieces organized and in the found, instead of the can't find group.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Those who like to sewing doll clothes have the same storage neccessities. Small hooks, buttons, and snaps can quickly become disorganized. It is discouraging when the item you want is not easily be found.

One can simply redesign any sewing box to make it useable for ones hobby. You'll find it is pretty simple to keep everything organized if one has 2 containers, 1 to use when you sew full sized garments or other items and one to use as one sews clothes for dolls. Because the articles used for sewing doll clothes are tinier than normal, it might be easier to buy a container with littlier divisions, rather than attempting to adapt a regular sized box. To illustrate, a pill box might be precisely the right shape to best meet ones wants.

Besides the containers and furnishings made for specific lines, there are also storage cases of assorted sizes to be used with any doll. One purchases the trunk depending on the doll's size. As an example, if you have only eighteen inch dolls you could pick a trunk made for that doll's height.

So you can tell, there are many choices for doll clothing storage. Getting items in order is not difficult.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
