Now we're in Gumby; I'm gonna walk through a book.

I made this doll as a joke for my husband's coworker quite some time ago (like almost 2 years ago).  It was some inside joke they had - I think that his coworker had bought an Elmo doll for his niece and got some weird looks in the elevator at work while he was holding it - and that transpired into a big joke around the office of him carrying around a little doll of himself.  So, as a gift, I made this.  Of course, it took me a while, so I think he was weirded out at first when my husband gave it to him.  His coworker didn't really remember the joke (and he didn't really know me at the time) - but once he was reminded, he was pretty happy.

He keeps it on his desk, and I have to admit, that makes me very proud. Smiley  I think it's a pretty decent copy! ;-)


The hat is removeable, and the dinosaur is his pet. Smiley  The hardest part was not tossing the doll across the room in boredom while stitching the plaid on his shirt.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
