Clothes Pin Dolls

Recently, as I was browsing online for crafty things I bumped into some of the cutest, simplest dolls I've ever seen. I was also extra interested because I know my roommate was on the look out for a simple cake topper for her upcoming wedding. These work perfectly! They're made out of old-fashioned clothes pins and look great simply painted or fancier, by adding fabric, arms or different heads, too. I found two especially good tutorials showcasing both styles of clothes pin dolls:
