These dolls are made from little more than fabric and yarn, and are full of personality. Choose the yarn for the hair with care; alpaca works for straight hair, and boucle has built-in curls. For shorter curls, embroider mohair yarn directly to the doll's head and brush slightly.
Martha Stewart Living segment producer Lenore Welby has been making these playful doll ornaments out of old-fashioned wooden clothespins for years. To dress the dolls, use our templates to cut clothing from fabrics that don't require hemming, such as lace and felt; bits of ribbon and small beads can be used to accessorize.
