Don't you just love these guys! SERIOUSLY! So I took one of Ollie's real paper dolls and traced around it. I did make some changes, Originally it's head was too big and it had ears, neither of which I felt was necessary for my creation. I traced it and made two layers of each doll (in the boy pic you can see both layers...he's not complete yet). I then traced a third doll on interfacing and sewed the three layers together (interfacing in the middle...OBVIOUSLY). I would use a stiff interfacing the keep the doll from flopping around. And to be honest, sewing isn't necessary...get out your glue gun and go for it. Then comes the fun part. Lay the doll on the felt and start tracing what you want to make. USE YOUR IMAGINATION! REMEMBER THAT THING! IMAGINATION? O the things you could come up with!
What are you going to store them in? Well let me just show you! Now keep in mind these are Christmas presents and imagine the possibilities of little bags like these.
How could you not love these guys? They may end up with faces but everything I've tried so far was a no go. We shall see...a work in progress until Christmas! Thanks for checking in though!
