Materials needed to make the Hope doll:
- Scheepjes Catona (100% mercerized cotton – 50g / 130m) 1 ball of 50g of Nude (255), Icy pink (238), Poppy Rose red (390), Apple Green (389), Snow white (106) brown Root Bear (157) – a bit of Jet Black (110) and Lemon Yellow (280).
- Scheepjes Maxi Sugar Rush (100% cotton – 50g / 260m), a little bit of English Tea (404)
- Hooks: 2.5mm (US B / 1 or C / 2) and 1.5mm (US 8 steel)
- Stitch markers, needle, pins and scissors
- Safety eyes: 2 x 10mm
- Fabric glue
- Optional: Wire / metal cable * of 2.5mm diameter to cut into 2 x 37cm (14.5in) and 1 x 25cm (9.8in), cutting pliers, duct tape **.
* Regarding the metal wire, I take plastic-sheathed copper wire, which can be found in all DIY stores in the electricity department, it exists in different colors and it is not expensive. The good thing about copper is that it won’t rust and it won’t break either.
** It’s the same for adhesive tape (scotch), in the same department you will find electrician’s duct tape, it is not expensive either and it is great.
