Jungle Book's Mowgli Amigurumi Doll Assembly Pieces

Mowgli Assembly:

You should have:
– 1 head
– 1 body
– 2 legs
– 2 arms
– 1 bottoms piece
– 1 hairpiece

Check his body for stuffing level. If too floppy add a bit more. If hard, remove a bit or needle will not pass through easily.

First we will sew the bottoms on to body by using a yarn needle and yarn tail left on the bottoms. One secured, pull yarn tail to inside of body and cut.

Take one leg and check stuffing level, if good, use yarn needle and tail to attach to bottom of body in desired position. Once sewn in position, repeat with second leg. ( You can see my pictures for location I placed mine for better huggability.)

Next up are Mowgli’s arms. Check the amount of stuffing in arms. Once ready, take yarn tails and secure arm on side of doll until firmly in place. Fasten off. Repeat with second arm on other side.

Before you attach the head, make sure you have attached safety eyes (if you want them) or stitched on your facework. I just did a few stitches in and out over two round spaces to make the nose. *note I have no sewing talent*

Take the tail on your wig / hair piece and yarn needle to sew the hair piece on top of the head in place. This is what you will be attaching his yarn “hair” to. When securely in place, fasten off.

Once you have that ready, stuff the head to desired amount. Check it over and body again as this will be your last chance to stuff it. When all done, use yarn needle and yarn tail on head to sew securely in place on top of opening of body. Fasten off when done.

Sewing last round and next round out will make less wobbly at the neck area when you are working with lots of hair.

All that is left is the really fun part… I laugh. I find this oddly meditative at times watching tv. Basically you are going to make lengths of yarn and just keep cutting them to pull through stitches on your wig/ hair piece to lay the way you want to mimic hair. You will bend each strand in half, take your crochet hook, pull it through and then pull the ends through that loop you pulled through. For each strand of hair. It sounds uber complicated if you have no idea what I am talking about but it really is not. Here is a great tutorial on doing this by Vone Knits on Youtube. (I am working on adding a quick tutorial section once video is set up.) :)

Once you get all the hair in, just part down the middle, cut the bangs to a point in the middle. Then bingo. Mowgli. 😀

Okay this little guy was having some major hair cut hair shock going on. lol
