Ok, first of all: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!! Have a good 2008! Wink

Second: for Christmas I had no ideas for the presents for my boyfriend and my best friend, or, better, i had some ideas but too little time to realize them soooo... I decided to create two dolls that would be identical to them! (yep.. good intentions, bad sewing skills... in fact the similarity with the guys is only into my mind... Tongue)
I bought felt (big mistake... now I HATE felt, it gets dirty so easly), wool, cotton, plastic eyes, some old stuff and did these!

1) Alessio: my boyfriend. Astronomy expert (NASA t-shirt), sporty (sporting pants and hooded sweatshirt) and mountain lover (inevitable backpack and a detachable sleeping bag)
front

back


2) Nicola: my best friend. More stylish and fashion addicted. Jeans, shirt, sweater and dark velvet jacket with scarf! Impeccable, as always (if he could read this, he would kill me!!)

back
nothing special

hope you like them! Tell me what you think... be ruthless! Wink
thank for looking!

How could anybody be ruthless when talking about such an awesome project?

I love how you picked accessories that help define your boyfriend. I think that it makes the doll so much more personal and magnificent.
And felt drives me insane. I once tried to help a younger cousin with a school project involving puppets, and every time I'd pass the felt section at my local craft store, I'd glare  Roll Eyes

They're both adorable. You did a great job. Not too bad on the sewing skills. I'm sure they loved them.
