| You will need:
- a walnut
- a doll body of approx. 4 inches or so from shoulder to toes - use your own favorite pattern and method or you can buy premade bodies from your craft store.
- about 6 inches of wool roving or other fiber for hair
- approx 5 inches of flexible wire
- fabric scraps from which you'll fashion her dress and trims using your own favorite patterns and techniques.
- a small drill
Use a small drill (1/8") to drill a hole in the center top of the nut and a second hole just behind the "chin" at the pointy end.
Using a thin nail or stiff wire, clear a hole all the way through the nut. Double the flexible wire and pass it through the hole, leaving a small loop at the top.
and loop the ends and use to attach the head to the body. Stitch the center of the hair wool and attach to head with a thin layer of glue - arrange hair, pulling together in the back and twisting into a bun, secure with tiny stitches. If desired, you may add ovals for eyes with a black marker
or dabs of paint.
After you dress your granny you'll want to accessorize her. This one is carrying a fresh apple pie. Paint a metal bottle cap and fill it with a ball of foil pushed into shape. Make a flat disk of "super Sculpey" or other polymer clay of a suitable color. Press it onto the top of your pie, shape
as desired and bake per manufacturer directions.
