Simple doll - motanka for fun kids
In the most ancient times, when there were no phones and computers, designer dolls and dresses, our great-grandmothers folded in chests and old clothes. Grandchildren in the evenings asked the grandmother to tell a fairy tale. It was successfully completed by the story of a hand-made motanka doll, without a needle. Many legends and beliefs are associated with it. Beautiful rags, ribbons and ribbons were specially laid for the manufacture of the doll. Since in ancient times the fabrics were not replete with such a variety as they are now, each piece was worth its weight in gold. A prerequisite was not to denote the face of the doll. It was believed that if you portray the eyes of a toy, then the spirit (good or bad) is infused into it. There is another important rule - winding threads must be counterclockwise. For the rest, the craftswomen fantasized as they wanted. Now let's try to make our unique doll - a motanka. We will need: pieces of fabric, cotton wool, bobbin threads, scissors, beads and ribbons for decoration.1.
