Thank you both.  I'm very pleased with how he turned out.
Sitting on his folding stool he is about 20 to 23 cm tall (about 8 or 9 inches). The fishing rod is 28 cm long.

What a wonderful box of toys. Christmas in July. You have so much experience of fixing toys and dolls - even the repairs that look rather tricky.  I'm sure you could set up a toy hospital if you ever wanted to, with yourself as senior consultant surgeon of course. Does Rainbow Dash ever fancy herself in a nurse's uniform?

Our Needlecraft Guild competition theme this year was Around the Pond.

This was my entry in the Miscellaneous Category.
He is a soft bodied doll with button jointed arms and legs.
His fishing rod is a bamboo skewer and the fishing reel is a press stud - the kind with a hole through the middle so it can be held on with a pin and with a beading pin cut and bent to shape and glued on with super glue to form a handle. So it does actually turn - a little Wink
His fold-up seat was made from ice lolly sticks (Ours have Childline numbers stamped into them which took me  long time to sand off) and bamboo skewers cut to size.
He has one fish on his line and one in the catch net in his pocket. I filled their bodies with fine sand to weigh them down a bit.
The frog trying to escape from a pocket is made from beads and is a little two dimensional.
The jersey is knitted from the top down more or less from the pattern I posted here
and the hat is a circle cut from the woven raffia you sometimes get wrapped around a bunch of flowers, stiffened with diluted PVA glue and shaped over a ball in a cup.
The judge liked the piece and gave him a first.

Wonderful. I never would have guessed. Your colour catcher sheets are beautiful. Of course you can't throw them away. Love that you made such pretty jewellery with them.

What a fabulous legacy from a much loved grandmother. So glad you took the time to finish the afghan she started.

What a lovely use for left over yarn. You could also make head bands for little girls from these flowers and pretty garlands. Thank you for the link.
