Not an overnighter...just 2 days of crafts and spirituality at the church.
When she came home she wanted to show me what she learned to make!
They had made them as a service to donate to less fortunate kids in the world.
She paid close attention so she could show me later.
(chip off the old block!)
And made a couple silly ones for the boys.
easier than these String Dolls we did last year...
You'll just need yarn and a book.
We used the LDS Hymn book...but it's about 8 inches in width.
Keeping track of your starting yarn tail...
This will make the head of your doll.
Perfect little head!
About 1/6th of the bulk of the body on each side.
Now you can add a waist band!
We got some teal and tied it on her waist and then
just wrapped it all around her like a shirt!
(yes, we only had 3 colors of yarn...that has since been remedied)
on top of her head with hot glue!
Glued on the waistband too.
Googly eyes looked too cheesy...so we cut them and took the
small black circle out of them and glued it on!
the "Training Dufus".
They get beat up a lot...boys!
Me too! :)
