Dear Friends,

    A wedding is a beautiful relationship where two people are united . Wedding traditions and customs vary greatly between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes. I have taken wedding as my concept and made two wedding dolls ( Bride and Bridegroom ) using quilling .
Let me explain the steps.

Bride :

  • Head and Face :

        Make a tight coil using 6 skin color quilling strips (  5 mm ). Make another tight coil using 6 black colour  quilling strips (  5 mm ). Attach the two coils and draw the facial attributes. 


  • Hairs :
          Take black colour wool . Take a group of around 20 strands . Stick them to the black part of the head . Weave into plaits to the desired length. Attach a gold ribbon to the hairs .
  • Neck :
            Make a tight coil using 3 skin colour quilling strips ( 5 mm ) .
  • Body ( Upper part /Blouse  ) :
  • For the upper part of the dolls body I have used red color , 7 mm quilling strip.
  • First make a tight coil by attaching 20 quilling strips .
  • Make one more coil of the same dimension.
  • Make a small cone and attach both of them in the pattern shown in the picture.


  • Sleeve  :

                For the sleeve , I have used 5mm red color quilling strip. I have used two quilling strips for each sleeve. Make a small cone and attach it to the body.

  • Body Lower part :

                 For the lower part of the body , I have attached 40 quilling strips of 10 mm dimension. I have used red colour, You can use any color of your choice. Make a tight coil and and make a big cone .

Attach the upper part and the lower part of the doll . Then attach it to the head. 

  • Hands :
            Make a cone using 2 skin color quilling strips ( 5 mm ). Bend the cone to complete the hands. Make two such cones.
  • Saree :
                I have used a white and red border for the saree . Wrap the border in a beautiful fashion to give it a saree look . 
Once finished , decorate the doll with bangles and necklace. You can do this using stone line and gold chain. 
Draw the facial attributes to complete the doll . 


     Bridegroom :

  • Head and Face :

        Make a tight coil using 6 skin color quilling strips (  5 mm ). Make another tight coil using 6 black colour  quilling strips (  5 mm ). Attach the two coils and draw the facial attributes. 

       
  • Neck :
  •           Make a tight coil using 3 skin colour quilling strips ( 5 mm ) .
    • Body ( Upper Part ):

               For this I have used 10 mm quilling strips.  Make a a tight coil using 20 quilling strips of skincolor. Make three such coils. Attach the one above the other. Attach the neck to the body.
    • Body ( Lower Part) :
                       Take a 10 mm quilling strip of brown color. Attach two strips and  make a tight coil. Make a cone, make two such cones and attach them adjacent to each other. You can give a border to make it look attractive.


    • Feet :
              Take a 5 mm skin color quilling strip. Roll it and make a triangle shape. Make two such coils .

    Attach  all the body parts to complete the doll.
    • Mysore Peta :
               Take a piece of crepe paper ( 6 * 8 cm dimension ) and fold it Accordion Fold ( Z Fold ) as shown below :

    Stick a plane gold strip border on one side. Wrap the paper completely around the doll's  head to cover it. Please refer for the picture for further details.

    • Dhoti:
                Take a crepe paper ( 8 * 10 cm dimension ) . Stick  a gold border  on one end of the crepe paper.  Wrap the Paper (dhoti ) around the doll. Wrap it in a fashion to cover the legs.
    • Shalya:
                 Take a rectangular crepe paper ( 8 * 10 cm dimension) , fold it lengthwise . Attach the gold border and put it onto the body of the doll . It can be put on either side of the body.
    • Hands :
                  Make a cone using 2 skin color quilling strips ( 5 mm ). Bend the cone to complete the hands. Make two such cones.

    Hi friends,

        All children likes dolls . Lets make a cute doll using quilling. How about a Teddy bear !!
    I have made a teddy bear using quilling.
    All the parts of the teddy bear are made using fringe flowers. I have mainly used 5 mm light pink colour quilling strips.

    • For the face and body , cut fringes and roll the paper using the quilling needle to make a circle. For the face I have rolled 5 fringe strips and for the body I have rolled 10 fringe strips.
    • For the hands and legs , cut fringes , take the desired dimension of the hand and legs. Start rolling the strip without using the quilling needle. For the hands and legs I have used two fringe strips each.
    • For the hat , make two tight coils and stick them together as shown in the picture.
    • For the ears , make two tight coils of desired size.
    Stick the eyes , bow and other accessories to complete your Teddy Bear.
    Your cute quilling Teddy Bear is ready .
    Please give your suggestions.
    Happy Quilling....

    Hi friends,

    This is a unique type of silk thread jhumka which is very easy to make. For this you need a silk thread dori which you get in different shades. I have used red colour for my jhumka.

    • Take a jhumka cone.
    • Apply fevicol all around the cone.
    • Start wrapping the silk dori around the cone in a circular manner.
    • Completely wrap the cone. 
    • Attach the jhumka with a peacock stud.
    Design your own jhumkas to match your outfit.
    Please leave your comments.
