Pattern Description:

This little sprite is a two-in-one pattern. From the same pattern create either a snowflake sprite or a spider sprite, using different materials and only a few varying pattern pieces to transform the doll from a winter wonder to a spooky spider. The pattern includes colour photographs of both versions of the doll as well as 14 pages of instructions accompanied by black and white diagrams. The sprite is a 20" (50.8cm) cloth doll designed to be hung on a wall as a decoration - perfect for Christmas or Halloween.

The doll's legs, body, arms and embellishments are relatively simple, leaving you more time to spend on her expressive face and hands. This pattern gives detailed instruction in drawing, sculpting and colouring the face, as well as revealing the secrets of sewing, turning and posing tiny fingers and an opposable thumb for hands with maximum expression. Transform the doll's body with the snowflake at her back or add eight creepy legs using a very simple wire armature and some straight forward techniques that give the doll maximum impact and transform her from a simple sprite to a fantastic holiday decoration or gift.

Please note that this doll is meant for decorative purposes only and is not suitable for children.

The pattern will be sent to you in PDF format.
