and then wrap it around like this so you have 2 arms.

Step 4







Twist the first twist tie, below the arms, so it looks like this (after spreading the legs out).

Step 5







Now glue one end of embroidery thread / floss to the top of the figure…we are going to make the head. When you start wrapping the thread, make sure to leave a little of the twist tie at the top (the loop), unwrapped so you can put the hair through it at the end.

Step 6







Keep wrapping it around the head and put a bunch of glue on it when you feel you are done…cut the end and push the end down.

Step 7







Wrap a different color for the shirt….wrap all around the arms and chest….put a bunch of glue down, cut, and push the end of string down…You can fold the hands over the shirt if you want to.

Step 8







Choose another color for the pants and wrap the string all around the legs and thighs…cut and glue down. You can then fold the feet over.

Step 9







Fold some string and then push it through the loop at the top of the head.

You can paint or draw faces on them if you want to.

This is what the finished dolls look like. The neat thing is that the arms can bend around other figures to hug. I used a smaller twist tie for the baby and a long garbage bag twist tie for the Mommy figure.

    My daughter makes a larger version with pipe cleaner instead of twist ties and beads for the head. Lots of fun!
