By Hook, By Hand
Okay. There’s a determined benefit to by no means throwing something away.
After all, it’s important to be able to find what you’ve got stashed!
This afternoon I just had to make a couple of bendy dolls. Several years in the past I made dozens of those little dolls from Salley Mavor’s Felt Wee People book. Instead of utilizing embroidery floss, I remembered I had a stash of Persian type 12 inch curly weave crewel yarn in a gazillion completely different colours. This virtually bought tossed when cleansing up my workroom just a few weeks ago, however I just could not trash all these beautiful skeins, even though I had no concept what I’d use them for.
Nicely, 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 precise a 16mm diameter head. They’ve acorn caps that I’ve had for over 10 years, just ready to be used once more 🙂

Instead of dressing them in felt, I need to crochet some remove-able outfits for them, which is a departure from the book. And I believe they give the impression of being candy faceless; what do you suppose
