This is my epic Old Gregg doll complete with his own bottle of Bailey's. He's a character from The Mighty Boosh, a British comedy show that just got popular here in America recently. It is a birthday gift for a friend who just got heavily into British comedy, hooray! He stands a huge 21" tall and is made of worsted weight acrylic yarn, polyfill, plus a tiny bit of felt for his tie. I hope you enjoy!


"Did ya ever drink Bailey's out of a shoe?" p.s. he isn't actually crooked, he just looks that way because he can't stand up straight from drinking all that Bailey's


This is the back of his jacket, embroidered with "I'M OLD GREGG" - his favorite thing to say.


This is his hair detail. I used scraps of every green yarn I could find to make it look more like a seaweed mishmash.

and here he is with a cat for scale and hilarity

Thanks for looking!

Mm... creamy... bailey's. lol
This was WAAAAAAAAY big with the Coast Guard station where I grew up, someone found it on Youtube, and the guys just went nuts over it.
I think my favorite quote is either, "this is as close as you can get to bailey's without getting your eyes wet" OR "I've got the funk, no really, it's right here in this box"
haha British humor is so out there, I literally had to watch it twice, the first time I was thinking, this is the dumbest thing I've ever watched, and the second I was in stitches.
So! Anywho, KUDOS he's AWESOOOOOME!
