What to do if your dolls hand has come off and the loop on the hand is gone.

Tools needed;
needlenose pliers,
round nose pliers,
hardend wire, (sewing pin or paperclips work nicely. beading wire is too soft and will pull out under the tension of the elastic
ribbon (8 to 12 inches will do)
small screwdriver,
bowl of very hot water,


101
. make sure that you have the wrist ball and that the s-hook is still on the elastic in her arm.

.the loop the hook was attached to in her hand was a pin that went through the center of a pearl bead which is in her hand, you need to get the bead out of the hand to fix it.
