I head over to a girlfriend's house of mine for Craft night ever week, but she has kids so personal crafts don't always get started right away. We have to have some 'kid craft' time first. So this usually consists of my making some random doo-dads out of her stash of kid friendly items. One night, I made this string doll out of yarn! (Don't ask me which kind, I have no idea, it was just there, so I used it.) I plan on making more out of different kinds of yarn. He kind of ended up looking like a voodoo doll, but I still love it. (The fact that he looks like a voodoo doll might make me love him even more)
The head is made completely out of string, no base, but I cheated for the body and made a little pipecleaner body as a base for the string to wrap around.
This one will help you see what size it is, that's a cell phone it is sitting on.
Sidenote: I showed my family what I made and my nephew (21 months) was carrying it around hugging it, rubbing it on his face, loving on it. He called it a "babyyyyyy". Too cute!! Makes me think if I made the string more attached to the doll (final glue coating I guess) then I could give these to some kids.
Yay! First official post of something I made!
