This is the first up-cycled doll I made after trying to de-clutter my two sons' closets.  He was once a size-medium boy's shirt. Most of his life was spent in the closet, and a few appearances in school pictures. He's made more appearances in this new form than he did in his previous life. I named him Che-kee, from the brand, Cherokee.  Che-kee can easily transform himself by unbuttoning and re-positioning his ears.  Part of his mystery is in figuring out what his parts used to be.



Now, off to find another shirt from the depths of a dark closet....

Oh, this is an adorable idea! How clever!! I have a grip of clothes I've saved because of memories or uniqueness. This is something even a teen would like. Thank you for sharing!

You're welcome... I made this doll after raiding my own closet.  I named her Slumber because she's so sleepy after a life of being an over-worn blouse.  A modern twist on a primitive doll:

OMG I love it! So cute! It would be neat to make one that has laces, zippers, snaps, etc.
for little kids to learn how to use. Or for someone in physical therapy!

Such a cute idea!  I was thinking the same thing.  Stimulating little kid's imaginations while working on their motor skills at the same time!
