All About Hands by Sharon Mitchell
Available from our Etsy shop - see home page.
"All about Hands" is a 13 page tutorial for making cloth hands for a cloth figure.
The tutorial features two hand designs for practicing, in two different sizes. It shows all the tools required to make them and explains the use of each one.
Essential to the tutorial is how to turn the fingers, what can go wrong and how to make it right.
Woven fabric was used in the making of this tutorial but the same techniques apply for knit fabrics as well.
How to detail the hand and how to needle sculpt it, is also included. Hands can be just as important as the face when it comes to making a good doll.
This tutorial is an opportunity to learn more about hands.
