The Basic Conical Torso Block (Part 2)

Adding Straps

Extend the straight side of the back straps (closest to Center Back).  Go as far as you like - it's better it be too long than too short.

Extend the other side of the back strap as well.  A good rule of thumb, on a human, is a 1-2" strap.  I'm using a 1/4" strap for my doll.

      You can find larger poster board than that at most art stores – (including Hobby Lobby, Blick, Michaels, etc) and any place that caters to students (walgreens, target, kmart, walmart-even-thought-I’m-still-boycotting), and often also at JoAnn’s.

      Hope that helps….
