Hi! So yesterday I made these really cool cherry pit dolls and thought it would be fun to put them up on Craftster! They were fun and easy to make and I hope you guys like them. Their heads and bodys are cleaned off cherry pits. The one with brown hair is Lily, the one with black hair and a shorter dress is Chu, and the girl with bat wings is Olivia.  Lily is the smallest, her height is in between 1+1\2 in. and 1+3/4 in.  Olivia is 1+3/4 in. tall and Chu is 2 in. tall. and Olivia's wing span is a little less than three in. Cheesy Cheesy Bye.

How clever to make dolls from cherry stones.  We only ever used to play "Tinker,Tailor" with our cherry pips.  They do make such dear little tiny people.

Pretty neat trio of girls.  I don't think I've ever seen dolls made with cherry pits before either.  While I generally prefer "darker" characters like Olivia, I'm going to go with the middle gal, Lily, as my favorite out of the three, because I like her flower petal-esque dress.

What'd you use for their hair--embroidery thread, yarn?  I usually use carpet fibers.

did you use hotglue? If so, were you happy with it?  I have totally forgotten I even own sticks and gun and was thinking of using them again but need someone to say, yeah, they serve me well.  I adore tiny things and these dolls are wonderful. I am always looking to use natural materials like seeds and pits in my projects. will have to take a page from  your book and use cherry pits!
