Tutorial: Wire Skeleton For Amigurumi Dolls by janey-in-a-bottle Tutorial: Wire Skeleton For Amigurumi Dolls by janey-in-a-bottle
For those among you who might have wondered how I make my dolls posable and who might have thought that my WIP pics aren't enough to figure it out. ;)
Seriously though, I like to share and it's not like it's a state secret. So here you are. Hope it's helpful. :)

If something's not clear, feel free to ask.

Have fun. :D

I am curious though as to what kind of wire it is you used and where it can be bought so I know where to get some myself.

I use florist wire 0.65 mm. Something like this: img0.etsystatic.com/000/0/5394…
I've got it from craft stores and from mail-order companies that specialize in crafts. Haven't ordered any in online shops yet, but I bet there are many out there that have it. :)
Depending on how big your dolls are, that wire might not be thick enough, but it works well with my 7-8" dolls.

Hi! Haven't been on dA a lot lately, so I'm only answering now... :paranoid:

Glad you liked the tutorial. :)
Have you tried the method by now? If yes, how did it work for you?

I'm getting into crocheting and amigurumi, and as someone who's into wire jewelry and stuff I KNEW I couldn't have been the only one to think about this kind of idea! Thanks so much for the tutorial!!

Ooops, late reply. Unearthed this comment when tidying up my message center... ^^;

Glad to see that others have had similar ideas. :)
I've always preferred plain wire to the pipe cleaners other people use, simply because those are usually too thick for my dolls. Flower wires are a godsend for smaller dolls. :D

I've never thought of using wire before for this! I typically use pipe cleaners myself, but I'll remember this for in the future!
