Supplies: Crochet Doll – Dangling Doll

Filling

For filling, I used synthetic filling made of 100% polyester. However, there are numerous alternatives for filling material. If you’ve run out of filling, I’ve prepared a refill for you here.

Safety Eyes

I used 2 safety eyes with a diameter of 1/4 inches. The eyes are completely black. However, there are countless alternatives for amigurumi eyes. You might prefer other safety eyes as well.

Scissors

You’ll need any scissors. It’s best to use your most beautiful scissors because it brings you joy. If you don’t have really nice scissors, I’ve picked out some lovely ones for you.

Wool Needle

You’ll need a wool needle with a blunt tip. The thickness of the wool needle should match the thickness of your yarn. You might like the set of wool needles I’ve picked out for you.

Finish Dangling Doll

After you have crocheted all the parts we can finish the dankling doll. I recommend you to fix all parts with pins to see if the positions are correct. So you can quickly adjust the individual parts, if something is wrong.

In addition you should make sure to keep the positions exactly, so that later also all the clothes for the Slenana series will fit.

First we sew the head with the long end of the thread around to the body. In this case, both openings are positioned so that the center of the front coincides. If you’ve never done this before, the tutorial for sewing open parts together will help you.

Now you can also sew the arms to the body by using the appropriate thread ends. They are sewn horizontally around the 29th round of the body, ie 2 rounds under the head. They are 7 stitches apart on the front and are located on the right and left sides of the body.

Individualize Dangling Doll

This way you have completed a simple dangling doll, which can serve as the basis for very individual dangling dolls. Because by simply creating a few very individual details your dangling doll gets a very personal touch and you can make almost everything out of it.

If you want you can crochet ears for your dangling doll and tie them around the round under the eyes with 5 stitches distance to the eye on the right and left of the head. Be careful not to swap your ears and point the longer earlobes down. Perhaps you will get help in the tutorial to tie up small parts.

First, we will make the hair, which will completely change the look of your dangling doll. You can create long, short, thin, thick, smooth or textured hair in a variety of colors to create a unique character. If you’ve never done this before, the hair tie tutorial will probably help you.

Now you can customize the face as you like by adding small details that have a big impact.

Darning yarn makes it easy to embroider eyebrows, eyelashes, a mouth or freckles in matching colors.

A nose you simply design with the yarn from the body with horizontal stitches around several stitches in the middle between the eyes until it has the desired volume.

With textile paint or acrylic paint, you can easily make cheeks and shades.

Lastly finish the clothes for your dangling doll and give it a distinctive look. There are different instructions for very different clothes available that fit all dolls and animals of the Slenana series! If that’s not all that easy for you just look for one of the ready-made designs for Slenana Dolls.
