Hi.  So I came up with this idea recently when thinking about a friend's upcoming birthday.  It's really very easy to do, and you can find all the necessary items at any craft store.  I know I'm always out here looking for new ideas, so I thought I'd share this one.  I'm sorry I don't have a pic 'cuz I don't have a digital camera or computer camera or anything like that.

The first step is to draw the naked doll and colour her in.  I used Crayola markers on sketch paper.  Then, draw the clothing by tracing them onto the doll. You want a paper thin enough that you can see the doll clearly beneath it, but porous enough to accept the ink you're using.  I found thin note-paper at the corner store which worked perfectly.  Next, cut everything out (you don't need to cut tabs on the clothes, or anything). 

The next step is lamination: so long as you haven't created the doll too large, you can do this really well (it looks great) by using clear packing tape on both sides.  Afterwards, cut everything out again.  You need magnet for the next step: you can buy strips of magnet that are adhesive on one side.  The entire body of the doll should be covered in magnet (apply in strips, then, once again, cut out the doll).  The clothing only require a square of magnet on their backs, BUT:

This next bit is important.  The magnets sit on each other in particular ways, and if you're not careful your clothing won't sit exactly right on the doll.  What you need to do is take the backing off of the square of magnet, place the magnet (adhesive-side out) on the doll in the vicinity where the clothing will go, then place the clothing on the magnet.

'K.  Have fun!
