Tutorial 5

Just when you thought No more Balls LOL ..
Here we go again... This time we are going to make 2 sets of 2 larger balls (this larger ball would be about the size of a normal marble), a med ball, a small ball and 8 tiny balls...one set for each arm and hand.... they will be strung like in this picture... Note each ball will still be movable so the hand can be posed..


Here's how it looks when strung together...


Note here I've strung the 2 fingers so they look like they are bent...


Look how tightly I've sewn it to the body....


Here he is so far with both arms attached...Note positioning of the jointed arms...


Just another view for reference...also note I have felted a wee ball on the end of his tail to cover the knot of stringing him together...


Lets attach the head now... you will have this indentation at the top of the neck where there is the knot from stringing the balls together... use this as the entrance of your needle when attaching his head...


Thread the needle with the threads that you used to attach the eyes...
Insert the needle as above and exit between the neck ball and the next one... this is to hide the knot...


Tie the ends very well... I knot them twice just to make sure nothing undoes...


Now I just had to play with poses a bit... LOL
Mmm what do you think...


I wonder...


I surrender!!


Who me??? I'm innocent honest ...


Right I'm off...


Well hope your enjoying this so far... we are nearly finished :o))

Hugs,
Sharon
