Hi Everyone,

I am learning how to make string dolls.
I am pretty good at the body and head.
I want to make a ninja one for my daughter but am having a hard time wrapping the head for the hood part. I used black hemp for the outfit but the hood slips alot.
This is my second attempt. I used a lot of glue the first time it showed and looked a little sloppy.
Also, what is your favorite string to use? I have tried embroider floss, hemp (didn't care for) and just twine (love but it doesn't come in colors). I have read crochet thread is nice?
I have an eye question too. What size beads? How to I get them to set inside the string? I was thinking of tweezer to open up a space to place them in.

Thanks ahead of time!

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.
