- Craft wire – you don’t need anything specific, here. I just used the cheap copper stuff. It’s just going to make up the “bones” and will all be covered.
- Scraps of muslin – I used about a fat quarter’s worth, maybe less, and this guy is around Barbie sized. These are actually scraps from an old sheet my mom picked up at a garage sale.
- Scissors, wire cutters, and possibly some fabric glue
I didn’t measure anything here, just started pulling some wire off the coil and forming a body. I just eyeballed it – I formed the torso and legs first, then added arms, and eventually a base for his head. If anything looked a little short, I added another bit of wire, or if it was long, I trimmed it or folded it over. It doesn’t need to be pretty, it’s just the base.
And he is bend-able and pose-able, like any good action figure.
Be sure to join me for the Handmade Halloween Link Party - it starts today!
