This is a little guy that has rested in a yarn bucket for more than ten years. My puppy had been chewing on him, and I just couldn't throw him away, but I couldn't decide on repairing him either.
I am still proud of his face, first stitching some profile in the skin color, then giving him features. The ears were supposed to be pointed, but didn't cooperate in that. There are lots of things I would do different with his body and especially his uniform today, but I love the face.
The doll was made from a pattern that belongs to the zoo pattern set that was also used in this post:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303293.0
I will look up the book from which I took the pattern, I might just take me some time as it came from a series of twelve books that have identical names, just different numbers, and I just don't remember which one I used (yes, I still have all these books, no, I don't really use them a lot... why do you ask
who needs a practical reason for hoarding craft books, and after all, I didn't have craftster then.
At that time, I made many of these dolls, I remember giving several away as presents. I also have kept those that were still in the making, so this count as a sort of progress picture I guess
Also there hadn't been some progress for a while.
The TOS uniform was made in two pieces, the TNG uniform was supposed to have separate shoes, but that led to people taking them on and off and easily losing them, so I gave the DS9 guy an outfit that was made in one part. The outfit is knit around the dolls, and sewn shut in the back.
With all the Trek crafts that are now on craftster, I felt motivated to rescue those lovely guys displaying Star Trek pyjamas from of their yarny exile planet and finish them. So far, I have patched up the TOS guy, and closed the seams of the DS9 guy.
I am not yet certain if I want to see the new movie, but I want to see my little yarn Fedies finished!

Joyriding a Borg cube? OK, so pointy ears wouldn't be justified on this guy anyway
