Variations on a theme
My little dolls have pose-able limbs by using pipe cleaners in their arms and legs. I worry a bit that bending these pipe cleaners too much will cause them to break, so here is another way to make these little dolls pose-able.
For the pose-able Pocket Spirit above, I've crocheted seperate upper and lower arms, and upper and lower legs; so now she has an elbow joint and a knee joint.
Upper and lower arm, and what they look like stitched together. Pipe cleaners are still inserted into the upper and lower arms, but the bending is now done at the joint.
And here is the leg, one completed and the other showing how the two are stitched together.
The arms and legs are a bit longer than the original Pocket Spirit, so I made her torso a bit longer too. She stands just under eight inches tall; still a sweet size :-) The pattern with these modifications is here:
Nadia and Comfort in sepia :-)
Enjoy the day, and enjoy the crochet!
