Tips for head:
in Step 2 - Try cased or striped stringer for hair - it looks great!
Step 4 - Poke tilting upward in the corner of each mouth to create a cute, cheeky grin.
Step 6 - Poke downward with a tungsten pick and it will give the kidlet a nose, almost.
Step 7 - After adding black dots for eyes, slightly flatten with a tool
Tips for body:
Step 2 - alternately, you can squish it into a lentil shape or even a cube for more variety.
Step 4 - add one large dot for each hand and two smaller stacked dots for each foot
Step 5 - make sure everything is melted in sufficiently because there is nothing sadder than a kidlet with one foot missing. Trust me on this one. )
Congrats! You're done! You now have your very own kidlet! Wire them up on a headpin and you've got yourself a nifty little pendant!
Also Loribeads says: If you make them to sell, please be kind and let them know where you learned it! And don't forget to tip your waitress!
