This afternoon I simply needed to make a few bendy dolls. A number of years ago I made dozens of these little dolls from Salley Mavor’s Felt Wee Folk guide.

Well, they work Great for wrapping the pipecleaners, and making the hair 🙂
These little dolls are 2 1/2 inches tall, and require just one 12 inch pipecleaner to make them.
