How To Make A Wool Dolly

My nan showed me how to make these wool dollies when I was a small child and I spent hours using up odd balls of wool making whole families.

They are very quick and easy to make and you can customise them in many different ways.

Why not send us a photo of your wool dolly creations and we will add them to our collection.

You will need:
  • Left over wool
  • Oblong piece of scrap card
  • Scissors
