This has been unexpectedly difficult. First off, the issue of Handmade Living magazine (Issue 7 December 2011) that has the tutorial for the body seems impossible to find. I resorted to purchasing the electronic version, which is not ideal since it prints the pattern pieces out at a different size than what you would get with the actual magazine.
And then I didn’t read the instructions through all the way and wasted so much time undoing and redoing bits. Attaching the body turned out to be much more difficult than constructing the head, which was fun and satisfying.
I don’t feel that the attachment is perfect but it’s good enough for me to leave alone and move on. Charlotte has been carrying her around like this so the girls are helping me to stay motivated enough to finish her.
And Kiki has begged me to give her some limbs with which she can use to climb trees and such.
And here she is playing hide-and-seek with the kids.
Next up: Arms!
