Doll charm from threads

I love working with threads. I knit, crochet, embroider, make paintings in the style of string art and nitkografiya. It is so relaxing after a hard day's work, distracting from household chores, that in the morning you want to live and work again. Constantly after work there are small skeins of yarn. Where to apply them? And one day I decided to make a simple and long forgotten doll-amulet. Often such dolls are made from cloth, given to babies and they serve as a certain protection. But the handicraft made of thread also has similar strength. In addition, this work is much easier and requires less material costs. Plus, as I said above, you solve the problem with the remnants of small skeins of thread.
What should be prepared for work? I took:
- a small ball of gray knitting thread;
- a dense basis (you can take a piece of wood, a book or a notebook);
- scissors;
- decorative satin ribbon (0.5 cm wide) of lilac shade to decorate the work.

First we take the thread and gradually wind it around the base.I took the usual pad for a computer mouse. You can use any book, notebook in a dense cover, a piece of wood. The width of my base is about 16 cm (this will be the size of the product). Try to keep the threads close one on the other.

As soon as the hank on the base turns out dense and fluffy, you need to stop. I got about 50 turns around the rug. This will be the body of the future pupa.

Now we need to make another coil of threads. Only it should be less dense (20-23 turns on the basis will be enough). This we make hair for a doll.

Now take the scissors and cut off the bottom edge of the two skeins. Try to hold on top of your hands so that they do not fall apart. Thus, two blanks were obtained: one is bigger, the other is smaller.

It is necessary to tie a smaller billet with a usual knot to the middle of a larger skein. Try to keep both halves as level as possible.

Now fold a large piece in half, and distribute the smaller base to the sides.

Next, go to the formation of the head. Back off from the top of the product about 3.5 cm and tie this part with a thread. So we get the head of the pupa.

Now from the main skein, separate to the right and left a few threads - this will be the handle of the pupa. And in the middle of the remaining length, bandage the waist with the thread of the doll's waist.

At this stage we need to braid on top of two pigtails. You can leave the tails or weave one big braid. In a word, we make the doll's hair.

And now we form the pens to our product. You can also make them in the form of interlacing or tie at the ends in bundles, or twist into braids.

Now it remains only to cut all the protruding threads at the edges, comb the doll's skirt with your hands and decorate the product. For this, I used a thin satin ribbon of lilac color. You can take any shade and other decorative ornaments.
