TO MAKE UP GOLLY BOY

SHOES, TROUSERS, BODY & HEAD:


1) Position the shoes inside lower leg edge, pin and then sew into place.
Complete stuffing the shoes and continue approximately halfway up the
trouser legs.
2) With right sides tog, join row ends of Body and 4cm (1½”) of the head.
Turn right side out.
3) Mark centre front of body and match to centre trouser seam. Now align
body and trouser back seams. Sew tog (waist). This seam will eventually
be hidden by the belt.
4) Continue to stuff the trousers and body through the back of the head
opening.
5) Place the belt around the waist seam and sew into place.
6) To shape the neck run a length of Black wool around the first knitted row
of the head, pull up the gathers tightly, knot tog and secure.
7) Over sew the rest of the head seam (this will eventually be covered by the
hair). Continue stuffing through the top opening until you achieve the
shape that appeals (flatter rather than spherical). Finally pull up the thread
at the top of the head and secure.

FACE:
Mark centre of face and sew a French
knot in Black to form the nose.
Place the eyes either side and sew into
place, secure end through the top of
the head. With White chalk draw in a
smiley mouth. Using chain stitch and
Red wool sew 2 rows of graduated
chain stitch to form a crescent.
Close top of head by pulling up wool
tightly and secure.

HAIR:
Using Black wool double sew loops to
cover the head from the front hairline,
making them shorter nearer the neck.

SLEEVES (ARMS) & HANDS:


With right sides tog, over sew row ends of sleeves tog, leaving the shaped
portion open.
Turn right sides out. Place hands inside sleeves at wrist edge (make sure that
thumbs are in the correct position) and sew into place. Stuff the sleeves and
sew open edges to the sides of Golly, placing cast off edges 1cm (3/8”) down
from neck.

fronts to form lapels and catch into
place.
