here she is...
You can upload the pattern from scribd here. I got it wrong last week, Mary Jane didn't make up the pattern, but she gave it to me ~ another friend Chris designed it; she tells me she is not precious about it and made it to give freely - originally for the school craft group I am not sure how many years ago. Thank you Chris; she is so beautiful.
So this is not really a tutorial but I did take a few how to pictures so you should be able to follow along. Last week I gave you a link for waldorf/steiner style heads if you hadn't made them before see that post here.
tubular bandage size 1 and a small piece of skin fabric for head and hands
1 pipe cleaner
felt for her body
beads or similar for embelishments
silk or english leicester fleece for her hair
After you have made your head and upper chest attach the arms (pipecleaner) centrally on her back at scapula height. To do that, find the centre of the pipe cleaner hold it on her centre back and whip stitch (over and over) all the way across her back until it feels secure ~ knot it off.
Hold the doll up against your cut out body felt and bend back the pipecleaner so just enough 'hand' projects past her sleeve. Then wind fleece around and around to make arms and to cover the hands. Next take your little hand fabric squares and stretch them over the padded ends and using linen thread, or similar, wind around three times, knot three times...(that is how I was taught, old habits die hard).
