By Hook, By Hand
Okay. There is a decided advantage to by no means throwing sew in with closure something away.
In fact, you need to be able to find what you’ve stashed!
This afternoon I just had to make a couple of bendy dolls. Several years ago I made dozens of these little dolls from Salley Mavor’s Felt Wee Folk ebook. As an alternative of using embroidery floss, I remembered I had a stash of Persian fashion crewel yarn in a gazillion completely different colors. This nearly acquired tossed when cleansing up my workroom a few weeks in the past, but I simply couldn’t trash all those stunning skeins, regardless that I had no concept what I might use them for.
Effectively, they work Great for wrapping the pipecleaners, and making the hair 🙂
These little dolls are 2 1/2 inches tall, and require only one 12 inch pipecleaner to make them. The doll on the left has a 20mm diameter head, and the one on the right a 16mm diameter head. They have acorn caps that I’ve had for over 10 years, just waiting to be used once more 🙂

Instead of dressing them in felt, I wish to crochet some take away-ready outfits for them, which is a departure from the ebook. And I feel they appear sweet faceless; what do you think
