Hello ladies, 
do you like handmade stuffs?
This post, I am going to share the way to make a doll using wool ad felt.
I made this as a gift for Danny and perhaps, you can make one for your loved one too.

I guess you may come across Voodoo doll. But some people don’t like it because it means “black magic”. To be honest, I myself too, am somewhat uncomfortable with it. Nevertheless, the tutorial today is similar to the way to make a voodoo. Hope you can stick with me, I guarantee this will not give you a creepy experience. =)

大家好,今天我要和大家分享如何自制巫毒娃娃。相信大家不会对巫毒娃娃感到陌生吧。我明白有的人不喜欢它,因为巫毒娃娃原于邪灵。与其说这是制作巫毒娃娃,倒不如说是如何运用毛线和不织布来制作公仔。如果你是喜欢自己制作娃娃的话,我相信你会喜欢这个教程的。

Materials & Tools:  Thread, Felt, Wool, Uhu glue, scissor
** The colors of materials needed is depending on what doll you are going to make. FYI, I am going to make a Doraemon. So, I prepared wool in blue, felt in red, white and black, thread in black.

材料:粗线,蓝色毛线,红黑白不织布,UHU胶水,剪刀。
材料的颜色是依据公仔而定的。我要制作的是Doraemon。所以准备了以上的颜色。

Picture from Internet
Let’s start now! First, roll the wool with the width of 4 fingers. The thickness is depending on how big you would like the head of the doll be. If you would like to hang it on your stuffs such as phone or bag, you can tie a ribbon between 2-3 wool when you have done with rolling. Remember to leave some space, so you can hang it.

首先,先把毛线卷在4只手指的宽度。至于要卷多少,那就看你的娃娃要有多大了;越大就卷越厚。如果你想把它当成吊饰,你可以用ribbon将2-3重的毛线绑起来。记得要留些空隙,要不然不能挂~

DO NOT cut the wool! Hold twos side of the wool you have rolled, twist it into round shape and start wrapping the surface by the wool. You should not cover the surface in regular way, the beauty of this doll is because it has irregular line to shape the doll. Remember do not cover the ribbon. After wrapping until the size you wanted, you can cut the wool and stick the end by Uhu glue.

不要把毛线剪掉!抓住毛线两段,然后把它扭起来变成球状。接着用毛线开始以不规则的方式绑成圆形。记得不要把ribbon也盖掉了。当你绑到你要的大小后,你可以把毛线剪掉,然后用胶水把尾端粘好。

Now, you can start preparing the details of the doll such as eye, mouth, face, etc. by using felt. Cut the felt accordingly.

现在你可以用不织布把娃娃的细节制作出来。例如眼睛鼻子等等。
After that, stick the biggest white felt on the “ball”, that is the face of Doraemon. Then stick the small one.

过后先把大片的白色不织布粘在绑好的毛线上。接着再粘小片的。
I am using beads as its eyes so I used the thread to sew it before sticking its nose. This is because I can cover the thread under the felt.

我用珠子作娃娃的眼睛,所以我用针线把眼睛缝上去。然后再把鼻子贴上去。这样,就可以把线改起来。
Last, cut the black thread into few short pieces. Then stick them on the big white felt as its mouth and whisker. Now, the Doraemon doll is done! ❤

最后,把黑线剪成一小段,粘在大片的不织布上作嘴巴和胡须。这样就大功告成了!
Girls, hope you love this DIY doll. I apologise for my bad writing instruction. I promise I will improve it in future. In the beginning, I thought it is easy to write in words. But, when doing it, I realized I was wrong. Perhaps I shall try video tutorial next time? So you can watch the step clearer. =) Anyway, hope you enjoy this post. If you have any question, please comment it and let me know. Happy Wednesday sweeties~

  1. Yes, I love homemade stuff and your tutorial is amazing. Normally, the sweet little wool doll seemed hard to make but your tutorial made it easy for me to get the consecutive steps! Awesome idea!

  2. this looks like a great project! i personally think i’ll be having a hard time wrapping that string in a perfect circle! haha >XD thanks for sharing!

    • I think for a smaller class should be ok. Else, I was worrying kids will get annoyed by the wool when shaping the doll. Teacher needs to help all of them.
