This is a Beautiful Baby Shower Doll Decoration, Excellent Party Favor made with Foamy and the Wonderful KNK Cutting machines. KNK Cutters, can cut Foamy with ease. What I really love about using my KNK with foamy is that once you have the file, you do not need to re-measure or mark your foamy again to cut it. Just open the file, send the file to cut and you will have the exact same result as before. You can also cut more than one piece at a time, which makes you work faster, saving you not only time but material.

- First, I searched the internet for a picture of a short pant and I traced it in MTC, using the Draw Bézier.
- Then, I measured the Foam balls to know the size of the pieces that would be forming the face, the hair and the body. Including the legs.
- Then, I searched MTC for some arms.
- To form their heads, I preheat my iron and put it to the Foamy that would be forming the hair. When the foamy is manageable, I try to cover 1/2 of the foam ball. And I did the same with the other half of the Foam ball, with the foamy, that would be forming the face.
- After having both pieces covering the head, I trimmed the excess.
- Now, I heated the hair to make it curly or just heat half of them to make it straight. If you want the hair to look straight, do not heat too much and with the palm of your hand, you will form the ponytail. After the hair has the shape that you want it, glue it to the head. At this point, you can draw her face.
- To form the belly, I cut the medium Foamball NOT in half but a little bit more than a half. I could say one finger more than half.
- I then placed the baby foot that I cut and I glued five beads to make the toes. Then, I did the exact same process that I did with the head. Preheat the piece of Foamy that will be covering the belly and I covered the foam ball
Chest and Shoes: (The chest and shoes have the same process)
- Take a small foam ball and cut it in half. For shoes, cut each half foam ball in less than half again. For the chest, cut almost in half again or the size that you want.
- Then glue the Shoes to a piece of foamy to make the underneath of the shoes and trim it.
- Finally, put a border to the shoes and a piece to make the belt
- Then, glue the shoes to the legs, which were done just rolling the foamy to a wood stick.
- You need two pieces of the short pant. The first thing that you are going to do is to fold a little bit the end of the legs to make a the seam in the pants.
- Then, you are going to put the outside of the pant inside to glue it like shown in picture #1. Picture #2 is showing that you are going to glue just the right and left border of the pant. Picture #3 shows that you have to pull the inside of the pant out in order to glue between the legs to finish forming the pant.
- I heated the arms so they take that curve. Then, I glued a piece of fabric to make the sleeve and put them aside.
- Now is time to make her body. Take a foam ball exactly the same size that you did for her belly and cut it in half. Cover that half foam ball with the foamy cut for her body. You do not have to heat this foamy, Just glue it to the half foam ball.
- Now that you have the body, it is time to put everything together.
