Hair:

1.Follow the instructions for the hair as shown in my L sackboy video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32SINLoVhII
2.Try to cut the yarn longer than how you want the finished product to look. After you have attached all the hair, you can cut the yarn.
3.For my doll, I tried to give her a layered look for the front pieces of hair.
4.Try not to cut the yarn too short or else those pieces will stick out and will not look right.
5.Miki’s hair is long, but with yarn, it is hard to work with it when it is that short so I decided to make her hair longer. I also used a piece of yarn to keep her hair tied so it woudn’t be all over the place.

Red bow:

1.Use red or pink felt to make the bow.
2. Use fabric glue to glue the pieces together.

“Blushies”:

1.Use a pinkish/redish colored pencil of your choice.
2.Stain her cheeks just below her eyes with the color.

  1. Thank you! 🙂 I spent like a month making it. It was my first sackdoll, and I gave it away as a birthday gift. It was so hard to cut the bangs. I was just snipping randomly so I thought to just tie it. I think one of the more tricky steps for me was the blue handkerchief because of all the color switches and hiding the loose ends. The hands were probably the most difficult though. How did you get the thumb not to point so right-angled?

    • The loose end from the thumb can be pulled into the inner part of the arm. Kinda try to pull the yarn in the direction you want the thumb to be facing. For the loose ends of the yarn for the hand I pull them into the palm and secure them here. It helps me shape the fingers so that they are not all sticking out. Then I hide the loose ends after that. I hope this helps 🙂

  3. WOW! I can hardly wait to do your pattern for Miki Falls. And I can hardly wait to see your video when you get your new camera. I was notified thru another site that I watch too…amigurumi to go. She also does lovely work. I was wondering if you could tell me the weight of the yarn and what brand you used? That is always crucial to know. Thank you and many blessings to you.

  4. What kind of eyes did you use for this? The look flatter and bigger than the typical saftely eyes. Do you know if a hobby lobby would have these sort of eyes? I’m looking into making this, but it looks complicated from the pattern. I’ve been making amigurumi for almost a year now, but haven’t made any sackboys yet. They look so kawaii though. Thanks
