Use crayons, markers, or fabric to create clothes for your doll. I used the two little lines at the end to see where to stop. The first one down marked the end of the pants/skirt, and the second marks the start of the shoes.

Step 4: Head

To make the hair, cut yarn to the length you want and either hold it in with the clothes pin, glue it, or both. I recommend both for kids who are a bit rough with toys. To finish your doll, draw on a mouth and a nose if you want. Now you have your very own clothespin doll
