Mummy Project

You can easily modify your dolls into custom characters. Here’s an example of one turned into a Mummy for Halloween.

Instead of adding hair and clothes to one of the 8″ ITH dolls, I made one in simple off-white fabric with no hair and then wrapped her (him?) in strips of gauze to make a Mummy.  To be honest, I didn’t even close up the back, just wrapped right over it!

I used the jester face with the 8″ doll body stitched in a 5×7″ or larger machine embroidery hoop.  This one is wired because I like to pose my characters and hope to animate them with stop-motion in the future.  (the armature wire is perfect for stop-motion video.)

Here’s a video short showing the highlights of how you can make something like this.
