Hi Stacie,
Small scraps of felt could be sewn or glued onto the inside of the cloth
outfits.  Felt doesn't fray, is available in many colours, and sticks to velcro
quite well.  A nice idea for your daughter.

After reading all the posts for Old jeans I had the idea of making a
flat wooden doll figure (out of 1/4" plywood) and then using s***
materials to make outfits that would attach to the wood doll with
velcro.  I don't know what to use as a backing for the cloth outfits,
though.  Preferable something  inexpensive.  Any ideas?

I plan to make these for my daughter who will be three next Christmas.

What a cute idea. How about felt it's doesn't cost much and I think it
would work great. Or is there some way you do two outfits in one not
sure how you'd this and not have the velcro show though. Hope this
helps.

What a great idea! I haven't tried this out, but it would seem like you
 could glue felt to the body (maybe flesh colored and some underwear?)
and then use flocking (a la flannelgraph material) or sandpaper--or
just cut the outfits out of felt also.
Have you thought of affixing a picture of your daughter's face to the
head ?  You could make her whole family, friends....just a thought!
