Maybe it's time to remember the skill of our grandmothers, who made dolls with their own hands? For example, we propose to make a Snow Maiden according to the technology of making a rag doll-motanki. What will be required: - sintepon; - blue-blue cloth, - threads. Manufacture:
1 Take the sintepon and cut out a circle with a diameter of 25 cm (the size can be changed depending on the desired size of the finished doll).
2 We lay out on the table the fabric of two or three colors, combined with each other. For the Snow Maiden it is better, of course, to choose a blue-and-blue scale.We cut out circles from the fabric, and the diameter of each subsequent circle will be less than the previous one by about 3 cm. The blanks for the multilayer dress are ready.
3 We roll a ball from a synthetic winterizer, we put we circle it to the center from a sintepon and wrap it around from all sides, so that we eventually get the head of the future doll tied up with a rope under a ball.
4 over the layer of padding polyester in turn impose layers of colored fabric, starting with a larger diameter circle. Each layer is also fastened with a thread in the region of the "neck" of the Snow Maiden. The last should be a rectangle of white fabric - it will become the face of the doll, and we will form sleeves from it.
5 We tie a warrior out of ribbon or sewing on his head.
6 Sew on beads of eyes and mouth. We embroider eyebrows and eyelashes.
7 Bind on the headkerchief from a triangle fabric.
