Give a Hand
I’ve just finished the hands on my latest doll.
Turning the fingers an sometimes be a chore but this time it all went smoothly.
The dark spots between the fingers is Fray Check to
keep the fabric from fraying and the seams from being blown.
I use brass tubes to turn the fingers. The larger tube goes into the finger and the smaller one rests on top.
Then the fabric of the finger is gently manipulated up the tube so that the finger turns inside out and disappears inside the palm.
Once the fingers are turned it is time to insert pipe cleaners so that the hands can be posed.
Care must be taken so that you make a right and a left hand.
