Materials of doll
- Cloth for bases.
I use cheap cotton cloth which is rougher than broadcloth.
A doll of cheap cotton is fatter than broadcloth doll only a little.
- Stretch fabric for skin.
- Cloth for base of neck. I use cotton flannel.
Soft and thick cloth is good ... towel, wool, or fleece.
- Cloth for lining of arm and ear.
I use cotton lawn. Thin cloth is OK.
- An applicator cotton for nose.
- Stick is the bone of neck. I use bamboo chopstick.
- Polyester fiberfill.
- Cotton batting.
- Woolen yarn.
