    Clothespin Dolls

    Just wondering how many people out there that have ever attempted this type of craft. I know there is a very basic way to make them, but I am talking about elaborate characters with costumes, the hair, everything. I have tried finding info on it, which is why I came to a sort of dead end on the subject. I have been teaching myself to do it....who knows, maybe I will resurrect a new trend! At any rate, there sure isn't a lot of information on it out there!

    I''ve probably made dozens of these over the last...oh....30+ years.

    What kind of instructions are you envisioning? Were you looking for samples for inspiration?

    Round headed clothes pins make the most realistic dolls.

    Dress it as you would a doll.
    I''ve seen them dressed with crepe paper but I prefer fabric. Draw the face with markers or colored pencils.
