For my boy

Two weeks ago I was stressing about what I was going to get Will for his birthday. Then I had a light bulb moment, make him a DOLL!

I've made him two outfits. One is a red t-shirt with pants out of Japanese fabric with robots. I used some Farbenmix robot ribbon on the t-shirt.

The other outfit is a green shirt with a bit of the gnome ribbon and red corduroy pants.

I am so glad that I've made this doll. I went old school with the doll. The doll has been completely hand-sewn. It's really not bad sewing the doll body by hand. It's the hair which is a killer. I had sore fingers from stitching it!

Will saw the doll while I was working on his hair and was really excited about having a little friend. I think he's going to be thrilled when he receives him on Saturday with his outfits.

The little t-shirts make me smile. Three years ago when I made Moo's doll, I couldn't have made little shirts like that.

ahh, so cute! I have done dolls similar to this, and the hair is by far the hardest bit. I am sure he will make a great companion- Happy Birthday Will!!
