This is the blade of the sword.

IMG_0103

This is the hilt and the guard of the sword. These pieces are the same sizes so you’re pretty much making 4 of these.

Form a cross shape like what a sword would look like and sew the pieces together. You might have to add more wooden pieces if the sword isn’t sturdy enough.

IMG_0104 IMG_0105

Once the swords are done, connect them in this way with grey yarn so that they stay together. Attach this to the back of the doll with red yarn.
