I finished filming and uploading my first video pattern for this doll. It took many, many hours of work between making the doll itself, filming and editing, and uploading videos, plus I’m no videographer. As a matter of fact, everyone should be grateful that the video is not in 3-D because there were several times I got too close to the camera with my work and I think I even poked the lens at one point! But the result is pretty cute, in my opinion. I thank my friend, Que for putting me up to the task, or I might never have tried it. There may be more video patterns in the future…once I get a better internet connection. The upload speeds were killing me. Fortunately, I survived and am able to show you this:
So, to make this doll via video, you can go here: Simple Doll Lab Free Video Pattern on youtube. There are also four separate parts to the video that are posted on my channel individually. The link I gave above is for the entire series of videos linked together. It consists of:
Part 1 – construction of the head
Part 2 – construction of the body
Part 3 – construction of limbs and attaching
Part 4 – hair
Or, if you prefer written patterns, I’ve also written up instructions in a pdf file which can be found here: Simple Doll Lab on Craftsy. UPDATE: Video is now available at the bottom of this post. This doll is my own design so we don’t have to worry about licenses so it is free for you to make and sell items from but please do give me credit, link to my page, share on facebook, etc. You know the drift.
And, of course, since I made an adorable, sweet little doll, Amiguruthi has gone the opposite route and made an Oogie Boogie! LOL. You have to see this. I did not know what it was – where does she FIND these ideas?! But it is super cool, creepy, and cute all at once and it even has special reflective features! I love it!
