This is the third incarnation of John Watson from the BBC's Sherlock that I've made to date, and all three have been different designs... I think this little guy is my favourite so far.


He stands about 13" tall and is made out of deer suede, felt, denim and 4 ply off-white wool.


The eyebrows are a new thing -- I like that they match the hair colour perfectly and add dimension to the face but ... I don't know. I'm not 100% sold yet. Possibly because it's the first time I've done them this way and my brain isn't used to it yet? I tried painting them on but it looked strange in a light colour, and black was too harsh for a blonde plushie. I think it's just the colouring. Sherlock's eyebrows seem to fit a lot better, given their dark colouring against the pink skintone fabric. If I do another John I might give  him a very light brown hair / brow treatment and see how that works since Martin's hair doesn't seem truly blond to me anyway. *shrug*


He can't quite stand on his own; he likes to be propped again something. Wink


And his eyes are painted on with acrylic paint.


..and in a couple of days he'll have his very own plush consulting detective to follow around! Smiley

No no - the eyebrows are perfect!

I'll tell you a tale of the bottomless blue
And it's hey to the starboard, heave ho
Look out, lad, a mermaid be waiting for you
In mysterious fathoms below

Aw, he's amazing! Very cute. You're really talented!
Did you make the pattern yourself or is it one you found? It looks fantastic!

No, I didn't find it ... wish I could have, would have been easier! lol. I've looked but the only humanoid patterns I can ever find are ragdoll types. I think my google-fu must be broken.

Thank you for the lovely feedback! Smiley
