3. Glue buttons and the handle from a paper clamp to a dollar store soap holder to make a colorful rolling suitcase.

No promises your kiddo will be able to keep track of Barbie's shoes in your hotel room, though. Here's how to make it.


15. Thread popsicle sticks between a scrap of crochet to make a cozy hammock.

The frame's made out of a wire hanger, which you probably already have in your closet. And if you don't have crochet skills, you could hot glue a small rectangle of fabric to the popsicle sticks, instead. Here's how to make it.

19. Then make this modular house for all of Barbie's cool new stuff!
