It kinda looks like a mushroom, right?


      I've been meaning to make some worry dolls for a long time so I'm glad this challenge was here to kick me in the butt.  i started out making a tutorial, but it was taking forever to finish them with all the stops to take pics. So here are a few of the pics and no tutorial.


I peeled apart twist ties and wrapped the wire in tissue paper to make the bodies. In this pic you can see how I put together the dolls with skirts.




All the dolls finished:



At first I made the faces sort of detailed with different color eyes and smiles and whatnot, but they were creeping me out. Also, the worry dolls I had as a kid were just eyes and a mouth kind of slopped on so I wiped off those creepy faces and did vague faces. Much better!


I made the house/box out of a Teddy Grahams box and painted it with acrylic paint that is seriously about 10yrs old. I love projects that use materials I already have. No money spent and no long bus rides to a craft store.




Inside:




Here it is with a ruler so you get a sense of it's size.



Thanks for looking!

Thanks  Smiley  I'd like to try making some that are smaller. The only thing better than tiny things is super tiny things!

What a cute doll set for us older girls.  Wouldn't give it to a small child who still sticks things in her mouth, so you could give it to me, lol.

I recently found a bag of worry dolls I got from my grandma when I was little. Tissue paper for the skin color is just the ingredient I was missing! Maybe I will make a worry doll to live in my next inchie house! Smiley
