Dolls made of kapron have long been considered an original souvenir. There are a great many of their varieties from the ironic pop doll to the important doll of the house-keeper, called to bring good luck. Such dolls are distinguished by a fairly accessible manufacturing technique, however, to create them, you should know some nuances.
To make the “Spring Girl” doll, you will need a synthetic winterizer, nylon tights, a pair of eyes, flesh-colored threads, fabric and ribbons to create the doll’s outfit, as well as safety pins for fixing the nylon base of the product. They sew similar souvenirs using similar technology, however, there are many options for frames for them. So you can meet wire frames, paper frames covered with padding polyester or bottle frames. I used a bottle cage in my product, as it is the most stable and looks aesthetically pleasing.
You can pour a little bean or pea into the bottle frame, such manipulation will easily turn your doll into a rattle, bringing happiness and success. Such rattling dolls are called tryndych dolls, most often they are dressed in Russian-folk outfits and the attributes of household utensils. Such tryndychiha, housekeepers and house-wives cause sympathy among the fair sex, serve as a good gift and make any home more comfortable.
To begin manufacturing a synthetic winter doll should be the creation of the head. To do this, cut off the toe and heel region from the nylon pantyhose, as well as the upper, denser part. The resulting "pipe" is filled with padding polyester. The top of the tights is fixed with threads or tied in a knot. It is very important to prepare a synthetic winterizer, before tearing it into small pieces before placing your head. Next to the head under the capron we apply small balls - these are the future cheeks, nose, forehead and chin.
We take up the thread and the needle. Making symmetrical punctures and weights, we form the nose of the future doll. We repeat all the seams at least two times so that the outlines of the face do not open. Such dolls are usually made snub-nosed, so do not worry if the nose does not differ in perfect symmetry and regular shapes, slight errors are allowed in this case.
Similarly, we make the cheeks and chin.
Attach the eyes. They can be made independently or purchased in a store. Eyes are perfectly attached to transparent glue, the main thing is to arrange them symmetrically. We draw eyebrows above the eyes, you can cut strips from small pieces of kapron that will serve as eyelids for the finished eyes. Also, the creators of these souvenirs often resort to false eyelashes.
Hair is best made from woolen threads. Such threads are fixed on the head with the help of flesh-colored threads, thereby forming a parting.
I fasten the head to the bottle frame on safety pins, which can be gently pulled out in the future. Also, colorless glue is suitable for this procedure. We sew clothes and make pens. Pens are two tubules made of fabric filled with padding polyester.
Apply makeup using the most ordinary blush and eye shadow. Our doll is ready!
