Working on 6" Mini Doll Legs Today

I ran a fever this whole weekend along with being congested and having a sore throat, an ear ache, and a tooth ache so I have not felt like doing much of anything, but today I am tired of just laying around the house feeling sorry for myself so I decided to get back into stuffing these little doll arms and legs.

I have been making these little dolls for a while now and wanted to post a couple of pictures here so that you can see how I stuff them.

These dolls are just 6" tall when finished.  The head and body can be stuffed by just using your fingers to stuff small bits and pieces of fiberfil into the bodies, but the are and legs are not easy to stuff.

I use a regular kitchen funnel and a wooden dowel to stuff them with. Just choose one that fits the opening fairly good, and hold the funnel inside the opening as you push a small piece of stuffing about the size of a quarter into the bottom of the funnel.  If you don't hold them together the arm or leg will pop off the funnel before it goes in.   Stuff it only halfway because you don't want your doll's arms to not stick out at a weird angle.
