If you aren't familiar with Lalaloopsy lore, they are "rag dolls who magically came to life the day their last stitch was sewn." They have button eyes and X belly buttons. Their mouth is a little running stitch smile. I've always thought they were cute and was excited when my girl fell in love with them last year. (thank you toys r us catalog)
here it is with Berry Jars n Jam in her party dress
(only pic I got of the back, terrible lighting I know, the sun was setting...)
The closure is a simple loop. I thought about other things, but it's for a four year old so I went with this. I made the big button from some decently sturdy interfacing I had left over from another project. It's pliable enough that she can smash it as much as she needs to, but sturdy enough that it will bounce back to shape.
She has already put her extra dresses and shoes inside and it works great. Mission accomplished.
