Its been years since I've made pipe cleaner dolls (we called them bendy dolls).  Yours are just awesome!!!  What sized bead did you use for the head, it looks bigger than the any that I used.  When I made mine, I used embroidery floss for hair, but I love the look of the yarn with the bigger head.  I love the faces that you came up with too.

Oh and there is a great book on the subject called Felt Wee Folk by Salley Mavor.  She has patterns for clothes and how to make 5 different sized dolls.  She uses wool roving for hair. She also uses acorn caps for hats alot.

I actually pulled out some of my supplies to start doing some of these for Halloween just the other day.  I've made mummies before using baby yarn instead of the embroidery floss. 

I just love bendy dolls.

Thank you! I am not sure what size the beads are but I found them at Joann's and then I found a whole container at a thrift store. I like big heads, it's part of my personal style. Smiley I am looking forward to making Halloween ones for my town's October Fest!


Super cute!

Thanks!

Hi! I looked at the guide for pipe-cleaner dolls (the one on Ehow) and it says you can use a wooden bead or wooden ball. Which one are you using? Also, did you draw the eyes or paint them? I'm going to make Tiana from Princess and the Frog, and Merida for my best friend and cousin whos 3. She will love them! Grin
