so we have this friend, kristy, who we love a crapton of a lot. and she loves my boyfriend and i just the same. she's now working on cruise lines in the carribean, making us jealous in our toronto snow storms.

nevertheless, she's leaving now for 5 months and that's a long time for us to go without seeing her, or her seeing us. so i made her some dolls of us so it's like we're there with her Smiley

so this is todd, the boy:


and his face and hair and shirt


and this is me:


and my curly hair:


yay!

i made these pretty quick, and just glue gunned the hair on. they were made pretty sloppily, to be honest, but she loved them. i didn't get a picture of them side by side, but they're proportionately the right height to each other (my bf's a giant at 6'5" and i come up to his chin)

if anyone wants to know how i did the curly hair: i had an unfinished crochet project sitting around for a year and when i frogged it, the yarn retained the curlies! yay

hope you like 'em! Cheesy

thanks guys!

And I especially love the shirt on your boyfriend!  Grin

that's my favourite part! among all his political shirts, he actually does have one in that colour (no blood for oil) so i really couldn't resist Cheesy
