Foam pencil topper: Mary Help of Christians
This time we present a tutorial to make a foam pencil topper. We chose the Mary Help of Christians of which we already had a tutorial.
As you can see the hair is made of wool, it is more natural.
It can be adapted to any character you can imagine.

The materials needed are:

We cut all the pattern pieces. We mark the body part in flesh-colored EVA Foam. We roll up the cut piece into a pencil loosely so that you can put on and remove the pencil. We paste on itself.

First we glue the bodice around the body in the previous step. Then adjust the dress skirt body. When we have stuck skirt sleeves. We stick arms sleeves and roll up the sleeves around. We stick arms with sleeves dress.

We strands of brown wool double the desired length, they are grouped in threes with a knot in half. Let strands sticking by the brown knot of the head starting from the middle towards the front.
