Edit 7/26/12: AT LONG LAST A VIDEO!: [link]Edit 7/11/11:STRING DOLL BASE for those of you who do not know how to get the pattern even. [link]Edit 2/18/11: STEP 4: CLARIFICATION 2.0 [for those who still don't get it][link]
---Ever wanted a string doll but thought they were too expensive???I did...
The one I actually bought was like $10 dollars....and me being stubborn
and hating spending that much because I don't get much allowance
decided that I'd make my own, and hey I found an instruction page.
....and it's not very clear, a bit confusing--> [link]
Well actually I was okay...except on step 4
...IT KEPT COMING LOOSE!Edit: As a brilliant alternative to pins you can use toothpicks! Idea courtesy of
So I did it, I created this tutorial out of sheer boredom, because I haven't made one in awhile, and decided to.
That and....I haven't seen very well explained instructions on how to make these guys on the the internet.
If you people don't know what string dolls are...THEY'RE MAGICAL
No seriously, supposedly they are, each one of them has a magic power...or at least that's that it says here: [link]
The site listed above can be used to look at so that you can try and make your own version
of their products, if you wish to buy from the site, it's fine by me
Anyways, I've made four of these guys so far, and none of them look perfect, the first one looked like a deformed caveman. keep practicing and the better it will get.
Just so you can see ones that I actually bought
that were hand-made in Thailand: (hence the title of the tut) [link]If you have any questions please ask! I'm here to help.(Also if the head strings seems loose, just dab some glue on the strings to hold them in place )
: Also if anyone makes these or uses my tutorial please post a link, I want to see.
