I don't know how I stumbled upon finding clothespin dolls online, but I think they are the cutest thing ever. Here is my first attempt:
I can't wait to make more! You can purchase the "doll pins" at Michaels or Joanns, along with the "doll stands" I made her outfit out of felt and rick rack. Her headband is ribbon also. The banner that she is holding is actually a piece of pre-printed ribbon. Of course, I also painted her body and her face/head. Her arms are pipe cleaners. My DH drilled the hole so that I could put her arms through. There are other ways to put arms on these dolls, but I like this method.
