Seam Strengthening Technique Taught by Judy Skeel and Gloria “Mimi” Winer
Because Grrrip Glue is a little stretchier than other white glues when dry, it is the perfect substance for strengthening any seam in a doll body, particularly those subject to extra stress and blowouts such as the fingers and the center seam of the face.
Transfer the Grrrip Glue into the applicator bottle.
Apply a tiny line of glue directly onto the thread line. Don’t use a lot, but be sure it is a continuous line from wrist to wrist going along all the fingers. This is also how you repair a clipped a thread from trimming the fingers.
With your thumb lightly apply pressure on the thread line and pull away to the edge of the seam allowance to spread the glue. This will make a thin coating of glue embedded into the fibers to strengthen the seam allowance that will still have a little “give” when turning and stuffing. Repeat for the second side.
Allow the fingers to dry before trying to turn them so you don’t glue them closed!
Follow the same steps for the center seam of the face and you’ll be amazed at the difference this makes in strengthening the seams and helping the center face seam to be less obvious.

Aluminum Sculpting Wire - 11.5 Gauge
Angelina® Heatbondable Fiber
This unique, new, very fine fiber is light reflective as well as light refractive. Angelina is incredibly luminescent, while it has an extremely soft hand. All of the colors below can be bonded together with the application of heat to form a remarkable cloth.
Simply place a small amount of fiber between two sheets of tissue paper. Heat iron to silk temperature setting. Gently, with little pressure, move the iron back and forth, checking frequently on the bonding progress. Be careful not to "fry" the Angelina fiber with too much heat or pressure and a too long dwell time.
Generally, Angelina heat bondable fiber will only adhere to itself and not to other fibers, tissue paper or fabrics, but you can sandwich some other materials between them such as glitter. You can also take tufts of the fiber and fuse just the ends together to use the fiber for hair and other costuming applications.
