Steps:

  1. To make body, firmly twist together 1-1/2" foam-ball head and remaining foam shape; glue together with glue gun.
     
  2. Turn glove inside out. Refer to diagram to sew first and third fingers shut; trim seams to 1/8". Turn glove right side out.
     
  3. Fill thumb and little finger with small amount of fiberfil to create arms.
     
  4. Place foam body inside glove. Pull glove down until cuff is below bottom of body, and head is smooth. Note: Middle finger of glove becomes hat.
     
  5. Cut small oval mouth from craft foam; punch two holes from pink felt for cheeks. Use white glue to glue bead eyes, mouth, and cheeks to head.
     
  6. Glue white felt around head for hat cuff. Glue pom-pom to tip of hat. Note: To make hat shown on red caroler, omit pom-pom. Instead, tightly wrap sewing thread around hat close to head. Cut off tip of finger; make vertical cuts down finger to thread. Fabric will curl around itself to form pom-pom.
     
  7. Fringe ends of felt strip for scarf; tie around neck.
     
  8. Fold cardstock in half. Use marker to write, or computer to print, desired message on outside. Use glue gun to glue caroling book into hands.

Cute idea. Even though the directions are unclear they don't look that hard to make. Great way to use the single gloves I've collected over the past few years, since they never come home in pairs when my daughter wears them.

These are cute. The directons leave MUCH to be desired, like,step one and where are the diagrams?

I thought this was cute too, until I read about Step 1 and I agree. The directions are not clear.

Very cute idea and such a fun and easy project to do with the kids ) Tracey httpwww.bonanzle.cominspired

I think I've figures out some of the confusion in Step 1 The "remaining foam shape" refers to the foam egg shape, which are used for the body part of the caroler. "Twist together" refers to flattening one little side of the ball and doing the same to the narrow end of the egg shape. Guess you could cut off a little but as well off both ends so they match, and glue them together.

What an easy fun graft to do! Thank you and Bravo to the creater!!!

I can't figure out step 1. Any ideas?

 

Nov 9, 2009

Please clarify step 1 - what "remaining foam shape"? The way I read the materials list is that the small and medium carolers only call for one 1 12" foam ball.
