Basic module for a sitting doll

 

 

1.gif

                                                            
You'll need 5-7 squares for the doll IMPORTANT: the order of the layers: hair than body, than all the next for cloths - prepare it carefully.

2.gif

Fold all the squares together In half - mountain fold (coloured side up)

3.gif

Again fold in half - mountain fold

4.gif

Unfold and fold the diagonal

5.gif

And again the other diagonal 

6.gif

Unfold. You'll get this pattern of creases (coloured side up view)

7.gif

Take all the layers and fold using existing crease than make a cut L-shaped as shown on the diagram

8.gif

Unfold and fold the other diagonal

9.gif 

Make a cut basing on existing crease, 3/4 deep, cut all the layers. The thickness of the multiple layers might make it hard but try to make it very precise cut. 

10.gif

Unfold. Now, to make head take two internal squares and separate it from the rest

11.gif

Take both squares coloured side down and fold the bottom part in half and 1/4

12.gif

Now, fold the bottom part in "three"to (view the next diagram)

13.gif 

To shape the face separate the "body" coloured square turn it up side down. 

14.gif

Put the paper coloured side up, (view on the bottom part from the previous diagram) shape the head - to make the cuts symmetric fold on existing crease.

15.gif

Now fold the side pieces of paper down. Do not cut them out!

16.gif

The hair, take the second of the squares (last separated),coloured side up fold in diagonal, in 1/4 of the part previously folded in three make a cut (it'll be forehead line of hair.). Watch not to make the cut too deep.

17.gif 

Unfold the "hair" square coloured side up.

18.gif

Take the square with the head (coloured side up and put the top part of the head through the cut in the hair layer) just to reach the shape of the head
See the diagram below

19.gif

Now fold the side parts of the hair part back using the creases already there.

20.gif

Make cuts to shape the lower part of the face. Fold the small wings You'll get down.

21.gif 

Turn the model white side up 

22.gif

Now the most difficult part:
Take the part with the head and put it through the cou in the middle of the square. You have to put through the whole head to the narrow part. The problem is the size of the cut in the middle - it should be a bit smaller than the head and making it wider would make the doll look not as good as it should be. A little training and You'll find your own way to do it..

23.gif

Good luck with it !!!

24.gif

This is how the model should look after the battle. It has no full layer on the back so...

25.gif 

Put another layer on 

26.gif

That's what we get . This module is a beginning for all the dolls that will be shown in this technique. Sitting dolls.
Good LUCK
