Meet Buster.  That would be Stash Buster.  



Here he is with his 'layette'.  Buster is another project from the past that has resurfaced from the depths of the stash.  All of the materials were just waiting for me to make a new friend.  



Here is Buster all wrapped up in his new blankie.  It is another stash buster, made from a free motion practice panel and some leftover binding.  

I made two of these for my oldest kids when they were small.  The youngest never got his.  At 13 he doesn't exactly appreciate finally getting his dolly, but it certainly brought back happy memories for dad!



He is made using an old McCall's  Butterick 4027 pattern.   The body is cotton.  The clothes are rib knit.  The diaper is made from muslin... I learned to use the rolled hem foot on my machine to do that.  The blanket is muslin and another old quilter's cotton fabric in a moon and stars pattern.  The doll is approximately 11 inches tall.

I want him I want him I want him!! lol.  But, seriously, I have been planning on making a doll or two since my kidlet was born 8 years ago.  The plan was to draft my own pattern but seeing as how that hasn't happened yet I may need to break down and buy one, especially after seeing how cute they are.  And the fact that he's all stash is even cooler!

Haha, that's adorable! He reminds of Calliou, the kids cartoon character. I know a few nieces who would love a little doll like that. (And I have a huge stash to bust too!)

Thanks.  The pattern is an old Butterick (not McCalls, sorry).  The number is 4027.  It looks like you can get copies on some old pattern sites and on ebay.

I think a lot of people appreciate the simplicity of a simple doll...and such a cute one!

Wouldn't he be great for Christmas gifts for young kids? (or even old ones! Wink )....I love that he and his stuff were all from stash!! Great idea and use of leftovers!
