LOL, Acherontia!  Thanks to everyone for your compliments!  Now I need to get busy and finish my Barbossa.   Smiley

If you made one of these for your boyfriend, he'd better love you more!  He would soooo owe you!    Grin

I used the Pam Gross basic man pattern for the body and face.  The basic doll has an inner body of stuffed muslin which is them covered with a skin of cotton lycra.  You sculpt the face with rolls of stuffing that you place between the two layers to make cheekbones, brows, ets.  So you can shape the face pretty much however you want.

I attached the hair with a felting needle.  It took a while, and you have to jab around in different directions to get the hair to hold, but the end result was pretty good.  If you go this route, just be careful with the felting needle.  It REALLY hurts when you stab yourself with one of those!  (I'm speaking from experience here.   Shocked)

I'd be happy to share the clothes patterns with anyone who wants them.

His face, like the rest of his body, is fabric painted with gesso that was then lightly sanded.

He's 2 feet tall with his hat on.  You have no idea how much I studied those pictures!   I worked on him during spare time at work, and people in the office were starting to say that I was obsessed.  Which I was, but they didn't have to say so.   Roll Eyes   ha!

I forgot to say in my original post, his pockets are all real, functional welt flap pockets, his pants are drop front trousers with functional pockets, and his compass opens and has a dial that turns.  It seems like it took me almost as long to figure out how to make things as it did to actually make them.   Smiley

That is sooo cute!  But it would be a bit startling to find something like that growing in my garden.   Cheesy

Great owl, especially the eyes.  Don't you love experimenting and getting results like that?   Smiley
