Sewing a Doll Nose

Instructions on sewing a doll nose


Making a nose is easy and quick. First, mark the nose location on the face in the center, below the eye line, with a pin.

Using craft thread, make a small stitch from south to north about 1/4-3/8 inch left of the pin. Do not knot the thread end, leave 6-8 inches of 'tail' loose. Dig a little ikto the stuffing below the head tubing to get a bit of the stuffing caught into the stitch.

(Please note, contrasting thread is shown in the pictures for better viewing, the thread you will use will be matching.) Make a second stitch from east to west over the nose, as shown in picture. Then make a third stitch from north to south on the left side of the pin. Make a fourth stitch from west to east underneath the pin.

Now, pull gently on both 'tail' ends of the thread.

The center will pull in, and raise into a bump that becomes the nose. Knot tail ends together to hold in place.

Sew a second ring of stitches around the nose to even it out and make it sturdy.

Knot the tails together a second time.

Remove the pin, you now have a nose.

If you want your nose to be bigger, make the initial circle of stitches larger, and as it pulls in, the nose will be larger.
