One of the parents at my son's school wanted a Tashi doll for a Christmas present for her daughter and asked me to make one for her. I love the doll that I made, so I thought I'd share.
Tashi is a young boy who tells his friend Jack about all the crazy adventures that he has had. Here is a link to what he looks like http://www.tashibooks.com/home.html
I made my version of Tashi with cotton interlock and stuffed him with sheep fleece. His jacket is red corduroy that is lined with cotton and trimmed with gold bias binding.
He is wearing blue pants and the Wishing Shoes. His hair was more tricky - I crochet a cap with a pointy end and stitched it so the hair curled down a bit.
I gave him earings by firmly stitching small golden safety pins to the side of his head.

I love Tashi's hair, it's perfect. Did it take long to figure it out?

Not too long - crochet is quite forgiving!
