By Hook, By Hand
Okay. There’s a determined benefit to never throwing anything away.
After all, you have to be able to find what you’ve got stashed!
This afternoon I simply had to make a few bendy dolls. A bobo hair number of years in the past 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 type crewel yarn in a gazillion different colors. This virtually bought tossed when cleaning up my workroom just a few weeks ago, but I simply couldn’t trash all those stunning skeins, regardless bobo hair that I had no concept what I’d use them for.
Properly, they work Nice 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 fitting a 16mm diameter head. They have acorn caps that I’ve had for over 10 years, just ready for use once more 🙂

As an alternative of dressing them in felt, I wish to crochet some take away-ready outfits for them, which is a departure from the e book. And I feel they give the impression of being candy faceless; what do you assume
