In only fifteen minutes, you can make a doll from nothing but yarn. Grab a book, piece of cardboard, lid or anything rectangular to wrap your yarn around. The longer side will be the body, the shorter side the arms. Wrap a minimum of 25 times. The more you wrap, the thicker your doll will be.
Feel free to embellish your doll with lace, felt, buttons or anything else that you like.
- Wrapping board
- Rubber bands
Body wrap — Hold or tape the end of the yarn and wrap. Do not stretch the yarn as the doll will be shorter.
Tie — Take a 10″ piece of yarn and tie it at the top of your wrap. With scissors, cut the opposite end.
Arms — Wrap arms on shorter side, but slide off and tie or rubber band about 1″ from the end. Cut the loops.
Assemble — Tie a piece of yarn on the body about 1″ from the top tie. Slide arms in, then tie under them to hold them in place. Finish as indicated.
