Make a Yeti Art Doll in the Hoop of your Embroidery Machine

Are you Ready to make a Yeti? Sorry I couldn’t resist saying that.

This 11″ poseable art doll is made in the hoop of your embroidery machine in 3 hoopings. You’ll need at least a 6×10″ hoop to make it and if you haven’t purchased the design already, you can find a product link at the bottom of this page.

He’s a little goofy and shifty-eyed but sweet and cute as can be. You can embellish him with furry hair, or make him out of longer fur if you wish. This design has lots of options!

The Yeti was designed to have a wire armature or skeleton inside so he can stand on his own and be posed in infinite ways. You’ll find a video for making wire armatures below the Yeti Instructional video. Don’t be afraid of the wires! It’s really a simple task with some simple supplies from the craft store and it turns your Yeti into a work of art!
