Facial Markings and Eyelids
This is how you get the size for the eyelids. Mark around the eye about an eighth of an inch. Cut out and use as a template for your eyelids.
Make two, of course, out of your tea-stained muslin.
Fold and crease them in half.
Pin the eyelids, overlapping about half the glass pupil (this is a 12 mm eye. At this
time begin placement of the mouth. Bend the twisted, rusty wire into a mouth of your choice.
This face is turning into something!!!
Select DMC thread # 3371 (very dark brown)
Stitch your eyelids on with short, neat stitches I think it is called a whip stitch.
Then hide the knots under the eyelid
Anybody wonder why there is a screw sticking out of the bottom, center of this head???
This doll will be 5-way jointed, including the neck. I think that jointing a doll is
going to be its own tutorial. As it is a little complicated.
That's all for now!
