I made these for a swap. I started with a stick figure shape made out of wire with a plastic bead for a head. Then I cut out and sewed the little dress, apron and yoke. The "rope" is just a bit of hemp thread and I covered the heads with a bit of muslin (cuz I think they put a bag over someone's head when they get hung).
Anyways, let me know what ya think! I'm new to jewelry making and any advice or helpful critiques you think of would be great.
