Illustrated Craft Tutorial - Making Easy Chenille People

Kids can make all sorts of characters with these basic chenille bodies.



Chenille 1

1. To make the basic figure, you will need a 17mm paper or styrofoam ball for the head. For the body, cut 2 chenille pieces 19 and 13 cm long.

2. Fold the longer piece in half and insert the shorter piece through leaving about 6 mm at the top for the neck.

3. Twist the inserted piece around the longer chenille to secure it. Set the head aside until you have dressed the figure.

4. To create a simple cape or dress, use a larger lid and trace a circle and cut it out. You may also make a larger circle if you want the top to be longer.

Chenille 7

5. Fold the cut circle in half and cut a small slit in the middle of the folded edge.

You may cut out a piece of rectangle instead of a circle. The procedure is the same. There are many possibilities for making simple clothes for the figures.

6. Slip the slit over the neck of the body. Use the arms to secure the “top”. If desired, tie off the circle with a piece of yarn at the waist to hold it down. Once dressed, you can glue the head to the body.
