This is the Batman doll I made for my nephew's 1st birthday. It took me about three months between life, making it without a pattern and pulling parts of it appart and starting them again, but it was totally worth it! I am officially the coolest Auntie ever! Everything is my own work accept the bat on the bat signal. I have zero embroidery skills and my cousin in law did this in about 20 seconds for me after I had to cut apart my third attempt to make it. She also is the shiz. Here are some more photos:
Batman standing (well leaning) in front of two cases of Diet Coke just to give you a sense of scale.
Batman's Face (with a really cool shadow worthy of the dark knight)
and finally Batman's boots which I was ridiculously proud to get right the first time I planned it out.
