- Two Wooden Kitchen Matches
- Embroidery Floss
- Craft Knife
- Fine Point Marker
- Tacky Glue or Low Temp Glue Gun
Cut the heads off two kitchen matches with a craft knife. Use a glue gun to attach one to each side of the clothespin for arms. Use a tiny bit of glue to attach the end of white floss to the back “neck” of the doll. Wrap floss snugly around the neck and down over the top of the match sticks for shoulders. Continue wrapping under the matchsticks and down to the “waist”. Trim floss and secure with a tiny bit of glue to the back of the doll. Wrap both arms in white floss from the shoulders to the “wrists” in the same manner.
Use a tiny bit of glue to attach the end of green floss to the back “waist” of the doll. Wrap floss snugly around the hips and down one “leg”. Trim and secure floss to “ankle”. Wrap the other leg in the same fashion.
Wrap a sash on an angle. Secure with a dab of glue at the back of the doll.
Choose a hair color. Wrap floss about 10 times around two of your fingers. Tie off with a piece of matching floss. Remove from your fingers and cut loops of floss at the bottom. Glue to the head of the doll spreading out the pieces. Style as desired.
If you are using baby flat slotted clothespins, you can add a jewelry pin and make it a SWAP.
