Finishing the Voodoo Doll Pincushion

After finishing all parts for the Voodoo Doll, it is time to sew them together, add the eyes and “voodoonize” the doll.

Body: If not done yet, close the body of the Voodoo Doll. To do that, stitch with a blunt tapestry needle and the leftover yarn from the body only through the front loop of all 6 stitches at the opening of the boy. Pull the thread tight ONLY after you stitched the thread through all 6 stitches. Push the needle holding the thread now through the closed opening, let it escape through the side of the body, pull the thread tight and cut it close to the body. Knead the body a bit so that the thread disappears inside the body.

Arms: Sew the first arm to the body (the slimmer part of the body-head-part) directly under the edge created by crocheting only into the back loop in Round 23. Use the pictures as guidance to position the first arm correctly.

Sew the second arm directly opposite the first arm again under the edge created by crocheting only into the back loop in Round 23. After sewing both arms you should have something like this lying in front of you.

Legs: Sew the first leg onto the bottom of the body before or onto the stitch edge. Take care that the leg is sewed on same level as the arm. Again, use the pictures as guidance to position the first leg correctly.

Sew the second leg next to the first leg again before or onto the stitch edge. Take care thats arms and legs are on a same level.

Finished is a simple Amigurumi Doll that can turned into everything you want it to be, in this case a Voodoo Doll.

Voodoo Doll Sewed on Legs

Voodoonize It: To turn this doll into a Voodoo Doll is a simple matter of adding black threads between the body and arm, body and legs and head and body to make it look crude and voodooish. Take a long black thread and stitch it between one and another body part. Do not make it look to regualar.

Face: Stitch again a black thread over the face in a position that should be the mouth. Pull several more line over that first big mouth line to get a “stitched-closed” look. Finally sew your 2 button on the face. It does not matter if the buttons are not of the same size, color or shape, the more crude it looks the more Voodoo it feels.

Done is your own Voodoo Doll Pincushion!
