Well, my boyfriend likes to cuddle cushions. And gets a little grumpy if I'm not there to cuddle. So - to give me some free crafting time, I made him this doll! She's supposed to look like me (but definatly does not have my body or my face - I wouldn't want to be replaced...)



In the box - ready for my boyfriend to unwrap on christmas day!



No face for her. Partly because I don't trust my art skills, and partly because I think it looks cooler.



A slightly better view (or worse?). Her thighs aren't nearly as thick as I wanted them to be, but maybe I placed them wrong.

I got the tut from this website - http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/girldoll/ - with many, many thanks to beandip for finding it for me!


Maybe I'll make another one day.

neat!  I like the top picture the best, and I really like the hands.  Was it difficult?

I wouldn't say difficult - just time consuming. And, as soon as I got into any sort of "zone", I'd stuff something up, and have to do it again. Those hands took forever, so I redid them. And they still took a very long time. (Well, long for me is an hour or 2 - I'm not sure about you guys.)

 There's a few things I would have done differently, like put wire into the limbs, and prob some in the body and head too. Actually give her a frame.

My mother and I had so much fun making her breasts, they were absolutly perfect, I felt naughty touching them. Then, when I put the skin cover on, they got flattened so much that she is now almost pre-pubescent. So, I'd probably also stuff the breasts harder so they survive better, and increase the skin cover a little to compensate.


If you have patience, and a little knowledge on turning things inside out, and then stuffing them, I think anyone would be able to make her.

This is such a funny idea. I'm sure he'll love it. Make sure you spray some of your perfume on it. The hand turning thing is a pain, but, you did a great job.

Thanks beandip! If it weren't for you, I might never have found a pattern, and thus never made a doll!

Thats fabulous!
I'm doing almost the same thing for my boyfriend this christmas, although mine is a lot smaller and I modified a pattern out of a sewing toys magazine my mum had.. I also hand embroidered the eyes and lips on her face.. she's going to be so much cuter than me when she's finished hahah!

and eventually I'll get around to making one for myself that looks like him.  Cheesy

She is cool but a little scary... she looks like a child sitting in a box. It'd be kinda fun to see if you could trick people into thinking she's real Cheesy

tayrawr - I'd think it'd be adorable to have a little copy of your boyfriend with you at all times. I shall look into that... Cheesy

needlemonkey - I agree, leaving her in Perth or something (the city) and seeing who does what!
