Instructions:

  1. Cut a 6 inch circle from fabric, gather in center so it fans out as a dress. You can glue half of a small doily to the front as an apron if you'd like as I did in picture.
  2. Hot glue a 5/8 inch spool to the underside of dress at center. Glue the large spool to this spool, off centered a bit. She will sit on this spool.
  3. Cut an 8 inch length of jute and fold to form legs. Glue to top of large spool at the fold.

  5. String 2 small spools and a 1/2 inch round wood bead on each piece of jute. Tie at ends as shown in picture.
  6. Cut another piece of jute 8 inches and glue to top of dress at center forming arms. String 1 small spool and a 3/8 inch wood bead to each side, tie the ends of the jute.
  7. Glue hair then the hat. Yarn can be used for hair if needed. Make a small bow and glue to her neck.
  8. Glue the animal to the tip of each of her hands. A small book can be used also. If you'd like you can add wings and make her an angel.

Check out craft stores like AC Moore or Michaels. I got mine from there to make Christmas trees in small and medium spools.
