Hey everyone this is my first post so i hope that you can read everything! I made these one day when i had a lot of yarn and didnt know what to do with it! Tell me what you think of it! Thanks

the red one is thicker yarn and i used more of it so that is why it is so big! I ended up cutting the top loop of their head to make it look lik their hair! They are fun to make and i hope you enjoy

We make those out of straw here and use for christmas decorations. Only we don't have them cut at the head, we have a length of it and fold it at the head, tie string to mark the head off, then we stick the arms-bit in, and tie below that to mark the upper body off...
A piece of string is often tied at the "fold" in the head, so we can hang it up in the christmas tree or in the window or whatever Smiley

Aww thanks! I like the idea of making it with other material i think that that would work good!  Grin Do you have any other ideas of what to make with yarn?

 Cheesy Those made me smile!  My mother taught me to make those when I was little, and I'm nearly 50!  I haven't seen them in years.  Mine weren't so cheerful though!

I just made these with my daughter and neice. ours were a little different though, after I tied the head off I made the arms from the yarn already there and just took out sections and braided it. then we left the rest hanging because it looked like they were wearing dresses. and we put googley eyes and a yarn smile on ours.
