About: My name is Sabine and I want to learn how to create, make and fix things. I have a variety of interests which includes 3D printing, trying to make music (digital usually), tinkering etc. I'm learning by doin...

Intro: Pumpkin Voodoo Doll

I've created a Pumpkin-Voodoo-Doll. It will be hung up in my office.

Step 1: Paper Pattern

I printed paper patterns to set the size. The arms and legs are made of a rope.

Step 2: Sewing

I transferred the paper patterns to the fabric (fleece) and sewed it together. During the sewing process I lost the traditional pumpkin shape in some places; it looks more like Wee Bee Little now. And there we have its name!

Step 3: Assembly

After turning the inside out, filling and assembling the Wee Bee Little with the remaining fabric and some cotton, I tied a rope (hangman's noose). The neck is supported by a cardboard roll.

Step 4: 3D Prints

I've 3D printed the eyes, nose, mouth and the stem. Later I decided to omit the nose and painted the eyes, mouth and stem with black and red acrylic paint. There is a nail in the right eye. The eyes are glued on and the mouth is attached with safety pins.

In addition, the hands were put in black chains and I added a few seams.

Step 5: Finale

To pin the needles I stuck - with masking tape covered - small cork boards to the hands and feet and hung a larger one around the neck. The text is exemplary. I will replace it for my purposes.

    Love it, thank you for sharing. Would make a great door "hanging" :X :)

    Thank you very much. I think it's because of the nail in the eye ;-) I'm new here and I will take a look at your instructables very soon.Have a nice day.
