These dolls were a fun challenge since they were made in the likeness of descriptions of characters from a book.

They are Vlad, Otis, Meredith, and Snow from the book series The Chronicles Of Vladimir Tod.  All 22 inches tall and completely hand stitched.

I've never read or heard of the books, but those are super cute! I love how you stylized them. What materials were used? Smiley

Thank you! Their bodies are made with a soft flannel fabric, they have vintage buttons eyes and yarn hair.  I used various fabrics for the clothes such as crushed velvet, cotton, vinyl, rubber, felt, leather, denim, and suede.

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.
