Pantyhose Face Doll

Sent in by:
Meredith of Grosse Pointe Farms, MI 


What you need for this ZOOMdo:
  • pantyhose
  • cotton stuffing
  • needle
  • thread
  • buttons
  • beads
  • cloth
What you do for this ZOOMdo:

  1. Take a pair of pantyhose and cut one of the legs off. Stuff cotton filling or cotton balls into one of the "feet" to make a head.
  2. Tie it at the bottom, making a neck.
  3. Thread a needle with a long piece of thread.
  4. Sew into the head to make bunches for a nose, cheeks, mouth, etc. You need to sew deep to make the features stand out. The sewing takes awhile, but be patient, it's worth it!
  5. Sew on buttons, beads, cloth, or more cotton to decorate the face. You can use buttons for the eyes, and cotton for white hair.
  6. Get creative with the kinds of faces you make -- young, old, pretty, ugly, male, female, baby.
