- Body part assemblage - You will need to assemble the limbs of the dolls in advance of class time. Make sure all the pieces are connected to form complete arms and legs, etc. Do not assemble a complete doll--just the individual body parts. You can used copper brads to or small binder rings to connect each piece.
