The arms were a bit different though. First I placed the string along the glued wire and then I wrapped the whole thing as usual.

Some parts need double or triple wrapping, such as the tummy.

Step 5:

The feet are of great importance because they allow the mummy to stand without falling. So, you'll need to make several layers of wrapping and you'll need to make sure that they are completely flat on the bottom.
