Cloth Peg Wooden

Made up my own pattern for this doll yesterday. I am hoping to make it look sort of like an old-time peg wooden doll. I have been working on a paper clay head and plan to attach it to the body with more paper clay. The fabric under this doll is what I'm planning on using for a voluminous skirt and over-skirt. A couple of notes: The nut-pick in the top picture is a handy tool for poking out tiny pieces. It is not overly sharp like a needle tool or scissors would be. The drinking straw is cleverly used to poke into the unturned arm or leg and the skewer is poked thru the straw with the fabric. This turns the smallest of tubes readily. I found this handy tip on Melly & Me.
