Assembly:

  1. Sew the head to the body
  2. Sew the legs to the bottom of the body
  3. Sew the arms to the body, I placed them between rows 13 and 14
  4. Sew the button eyes to the head,I placed them between rows 11 and 12 with about 9 stitches between them
  5. Embroider some stitches wherever you want and as many as you want
  6. Place some pins anywhere you desire, I used five pins spread out but you can use as many or as little as you please

There you have it, your very own voodoo doll! This doll makes for great Halloween decor or all year round if you like to keep things a little spooky. This is also a great gift for someone who loves creepy or interesting things. I encourage you to experiment with different colors, yarns, and hook sizes to make this project your own.
