There was a question last post about the assembly of a doll.
This last method is the how the Button baby is made, with the exception of the joints.
The baby has button joints. This means that the arms and body are sewn together with one long piece of craft string which is threaded through buttons between the pieces.
The doll is really floppy. The arms and legs go all over, but when I asked at Wonderment, they said it is supposed to be that way, that babies can't control where their limbs go either, and once I make it some clothes it will calm down.
As I have said, the Elder Hug-a-Bug is happy with the baby even with its flopping, the feet are already kinda grubby from all of the loving.
I think that my main problem with this construction technique is that the fabric is stretchy. I might try this with a woven next time and see if I get different results.
As I make this list of dolls, I realize that I have a little problem.
The Hug-a-Bugs are running out of room for toys.
I love making dolls and toys.
Where will it all end?
Have a terrific Wednesday,
Lost Finale Tomorrow!
