Yay, I am finally allowed to post pictures:


===================================================
Ok here is my attempt to describing the patterns:

Materials:
For most of the colors, I have used Sugar'n Cream Lily cotton (www.sugarncream.com), except for the blue and grey which are Lion Brand Cotton Ease (www.lionbrand.com).
I used a 3.75 MM/US F5 crochet hook, and 12 mm solid black safety eyes. I used polyfill for stuffing.

You might want to add some more embroidering to the dolls, like white stripes on Raj's cardigan and a print on Leonard's and Penny's shirts.
NB: to change color use this technique: http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa072697.htm

OMG! Those are soooo cute! I was just thinking yesterday how I could make them for my parents as a Christmas present. Your interpretation is perfect! If you decide to post the patterns I am so all over them. Great job.

OMFG, those are too cute!  I LOVE the Big Bang Theory. 

Do you have a Twitter account?  Billy Prady (one of the creators) often responds to tweets, as do the fictitious character accounts run by the writers.  If you sent one of them a tweet with a link to the pic I'm sure you'd get a response (Bill & 'Sheldon' are the most responsive--the others are more sporadic).
