DIY Doll Shopkins Backpacks!


So I’m jamming in one more travel-related tutorial before my mum and I take off driving tmorrow! 😀 (did any of you guess from the sneak peek yesterday what this tutorial is about?)

I recently posted a video on my YouTube channel of me reviewing some Season 5 Shopkins. Part of what I love about this season are the ADORABLE little Petkins backpacks that the blind bags come in! They’re great for storing Shopkins and other little accessories.

Which got me thinking….what if these tiny backpacks could actually be backpacks for my other dolls?



Without further ado, here are the materials you need for this project!


  • A Shopkins Petkin Backpack (this one’s kind of obvi 😉 )
  • Hot glue
  • Ribbon or cord

First, measure and cut 2 pieces of your ribbon, about 2 1/4 inches long.

Place a dot of hot glue on the corner of one of the molded straps of the backpack.


Now fold over a tiny tab of the ribbon and push it into the glue (this prevents fraying).


Repeat on all four corners.

And you’re done! 😀

These are great for storing tiny doll accessories when you’re on the go. 😀


I just adore taking pictures of this Frankie. She’s so photogenic!!



Side note: Bratz Cloe looks awesome in EAH Blondie Lockes’ boots!

  1. That’s a great idea to use the Shopkins as doll backpacks…and that blue one looks fantastic on Frankie! Hope you have a great time on your road trip! It’s a lot more fun when you’re traveling with dolls 😀
