I have several people call me and ask how to the do the pinch stitch on the nose. I find it hard to describe how to do some of the techniques over the phone. So hoping this will help.
I drew the lines on this doll, with a black marker, as I going to paint her black. But knot your needle and insert needle in back of head, coming out where you want to start your stitch.
Take your hand and kind of pinch it together and insert your needle under the mark and picking up a little stuffing come out on other side of line.
You can see in the pictures the finished eyebrows, just run your needle down to the starting point at top of the nose and start pinching your nose and do the same, picking up alittle more stuffing to make is stand out more.
Just continue on the mouth and when you are finished stitching, just knot off.
All done and now ready to paint. This was the doll from my newest pattern at the Olde Country Cupboard.
This is her face painted.
