WANNA MAKE. Mieko is a one of a kind cloth doll. Her body is made of soft wool suiting and her hand embroidered face is made from pure wool felt. Her caplet is made of hounds tooth tweed and dose up with a wooden button on the front. Her little arms are sewn securely on with buttons so they can be moved about. Just to finish off she has stripy cotton leggings and little pink bows in her hair. Mieko stands 16 inches tall from her head to her tippy toes.
Stuffed "monsters" based on children's drawings. Would be a fun fabric-art project for students!
Craft expert and editor Meg Leder joins Martha in the studio to make these adorable animals from simple pairs of socks and gloves -- the basis of a great how-to book, "Sock and Glove," by Miyako Kanamori, which was first published in Japan. Download the detailed step-by-step instructions and photographs for the bunny and dog, so you, too, can make these adorable glove animals.
