Cloth Doll Fingers

Do you have trouble making those separate wired fingers for your cloth figures?

Here are some pointers:
  • Always use high thread count cottons or stretch fabrics such as velour and jersey as
    these will not fray between the tiny stitches.

  • Always use the turning tools recommended for the job.
  • Some well known cloth doll makers suggest using fray check/stop solutions.

Why not share your finger making troubles in the comments below?
I shall be hosting a Giveaway, as this blog is almost one year old, so do tell your friends to watch this space. More details on MONDAY...
