Mum & I had a little brainstorming session a while back and reminisced about childhood toys & techniques. Mum remembered making these dolls from scrap wool as a youngster & created one to show me. I've never seen them before and marvelled at the simplicity.
They are made from looping wool in 2 directions and then tying and cutting the ends to suit. You can make them in all sizes - tall, short, thin, round. We had a lot of fun and named this lovely lady Delores.
At this stage I haven't introduced her to my Etsy shop as she would look a little lonely on her own amongst the building tools. I'm wondering if she is a desirable design in the highly competitive selection of dolls already on Etsy. Admittedly there's a little bit of improvement & tweaking required before she's ready to go public (in particular her face) but me thinks me could have a lot of fun with the Woolly Dolls!!
