Creepy Ugly Dolls

Introduction: Creepy Ugly Dolls

Around Christmas times I noticed these dolls called Fugglers (funny-ugly monsters). Other than using artificial human teeth to crank up the creep factor, they were basically the same felt dolls that I used to hand sew as a kid in the 70s. At a showing ofSpider-Man: Into the Spider-VerseI saw a trailer for anuglydolls.movie. So a trend of simplistically shaped, creepy felt dolls has emerged. Fine. But the fact that they were charging $15.00 to $30.00 for these things seemed preposterous. Until I went to make one.

材料成本快速安装。如果你只是为自己或朋友制作一个单娃娃,你想要一个完全像你见过的那样,你可能能够比买一个更便宜。假设您已经有一台缝纫机和热胶枪和胶棒和螺纹(你知道螺纹的单个线轴是多少?),你甚至没有在你的时间内远程考虑因素。

Time generally can't be a factor when crafting. You have to be doing it for the love of the craft or as a challenge or as an expression of creativity. I make more than $20.00 an hour at my job and I value my free time more. Even if you calculated the time spent crafting at minimum wage levels it would be far cheaper for you to ultimately just buy the item.

但!如果您将在批量生产上为儿童制作这些,以便为图书馆装饰,或幼童童易智或布朗尼计划,那么这将是相当成本效益和比购买它们便宜得多。孩子们将享受装饰和创造自己令人毛骨悚然的丑陋娃娃的乐趣。

第1步:收集材料

我试图让国家链的所有物品与区域工艺商店相反。我开始在美元的树上,然后向沃尔玛工作。我最初将尽可能地尝试重新创建一个Fuggler娃娃,但模压的塑料眼睛是2.49美元的一对,他们没有我想要的颜色。我决定尽可能廉价地制造它们。

这是我用的:

缝纫机

剪刀

热胶枪

Glue sticks

Stapler

One piece of felt for body (23 cents from Walmart)

Additional felt for mouth, decorations, etc. (Free scarps or 23 cents per color)

Wiggly eyes - $1.00 from Dollar Tree. 125 various sized eyes for a buck. Walmart charges twice as much for the same amount.

Piece of white foam for the teeth - Got it at Walmart but can't remember the price. Let's call it a buck.

Fiber fill - this is what jacks the price up. A 20 ounce bag is $5.00. The brand I always used is now up to $9.00 a a bag!

我想是的。

Step 2: Doll Template

我根据Fuggler设计创建了各种模板。我去了亚马逊,下载了各种Fugglers的清晰镜头,然后根据图像轮廓创建了一种模式。

I scaled the image down in Publisher and created a template that would fit on half of a felt square. I actually made it an inch smaller for an overlap concept hat I used in the creation of this doll.

我印刷了卡片上的图案,然后剪掉了。

步骤3:褶皱

带上你的感觉方形并将它折叠成两半。

Step 4: Cut

Cut the square in half

Step 5: Trace

跟踪the pattern you created or draw free hand you monster body design on one of the half pieces of the felt square..

第六步:行

在身体件旁边的另一个毛毡线。

Step 7: More Cutting

在娃娃头部的中间切割毛毡。

第8步:然后......

You will then take the pieces you cut, and unless you them with utter straight edge perfection, flip each piece so that the factory cut edge faces each other. Then overlap the pieces by about an inch. This is why I scaled the body slightly smaller. you can see that when I put the pieces side by side, that if the body took up the whole half sheet, then I couldn't try out my little overlap concept. The idea is that once everything is sewed together, you can turn the body inside out and then easily stuff the body from the slot opening. I was hoping that you wouldn't even have to sew it closed, but the overlap area isn't large enough to keep the stuffing in place and be hidden. It's still nice to have the overlap to glue or sew it shut.

第9步:订书机

I then attached the front piece to the back piece just using a stapler since I didn't have any straight pins with me.

Step 10: Sewing

I then sewed the outline of the monster body, using a fairly tight stitch. Not necessarily for durability, but to make tighter turns when sewing such a small pattern.

Also, this is one of my little tricks. With most sewing projects the pattern has seam allowance, or you have to add seam allowance, and then you cut out both pieces and pinn them together and then you have to sew a quarter of an inch in, following the presser foot...

WHY?!!

LOL.

只需具备所需方式的模式,您就不必剪掉任何一块,你完全遵循追溯到面料上的线路,然后将其切出,在事实之后创建接缝津贴边缘。这比所有切割和钉扎和慢慢缝制更快。

After you've sewn all the way around you cut off the excess, turn it inside out and...

Step 11: Voilà

你的未填充娃娃体。

步骤12:戳It

使用触控笔,铅笔或销钉杆,通过背面的开口戳穿娃娃的内部,并确保一切都转向真实的好,接缝真的很紧张。

Step 13: Stuff It

Then stuff the body, getting into the tight little spaces of the arms and legs. It is not pictured but once stuffed I sealed the overlap area in the back of the with a bead of hot glue. It has a nice brain surgery look to it.

第14步:装饰

I then used different colored felt to make eye highlights and a mouth.

I attached everything with hot glue set to the low heat temperature.

我从泡沫中切出牙齿并将它们粘在口中。

I cut additional strips of purple felt to make eye lids to give it a slightly more sinister look.

第15步:结束

And that's my take on the Creepy Ugly Doll fad. Well. My take on making them as quickly and cheaply as possible for children to decorate.

I've already come up with ideas to make them creepier.

但这将是另一个指导。
