BATMAN!


This is the Batman doll I made for my nephew's 1st birthday. It took me about three months between life, making it without a pattern and pulling parts of it appart and starting them again, but it was totally worth it! I am officially the coolest Auntie ever! Everything is my own work accept the bat on the bat signal. I have zero embroidery skills and my cousin in law did this in about 20 seconds for me after I had to cut apart my third attempt to make it. She also is the shiz. Here are some more photos:


Batman standing (well leaning) in front of two cases of Diet Coke just to give you a sense of scale.


Batman's cape


Batman's Face (with a really cool shadow worthy of the dark knight)


and finally Batman's boots which I was ridiculously proud to get right the first time I planned it out.

I have very sketchy notes on part of it -like the inc pattern for the cape and the boots but other than that he is really just a series of tubes that start with 6sc in a magic ring and then spiral up to my desired width and length. The ears are squares folded on the diagonal, stuffed and the sides sown together then attached to the head. The bat-signal is a yellow oval with an embroidered bat then attached to the body. I changed colors mid row to make the mouth area of the head then embroidered the mouth and eyes.
