paper doll family
all of the crafts that i have made in the past, this is perhaps one of my favorites. years ago, i made paper dolls out of a photo copied piture of me and hubby when we where in pre-school. i thought that its about time i make one of my little toddler.
paper doll of me and hubby beside an ultrasound image of alonzo --- our very first "family picture"
step 1: photo copy a picture and cut out "head"
step 2: roughly draw the "body" on cardboard
step 3: paste "head" over cardboard
step 4: cut
step 5: with front side of paper doll facing down over wrong side of fabric, trace "body" to make clothes
step 6: cut fabric and paste onto paper doll
step 7: you may add details such as a collar, pocket, belt, etc...
step 7: bend at the "hips" and "knee" part and let doll sit over a ledge or shelf
