Hi!

I made this quite some time ago, but I forgot to post it!
When I was in a sock monkey/critter swap, my partner had Brook of One Piece on her list. I had no idea what or who that was, but figured it out and decided to go for it!

For me quite the challenge, as I normally make cute things!
Here's a picture:


And a more detailed picture:


I had lots of fun making this! Even though not really my style, I think I got it right.
So here's a picture of the character, I used that a lot:


In most pictures I googled, Brook was wearing a jacket with black lace at the sleeves and a purple bow. So I made him a jacket with lace, purple bow, black pants and black shoes.

In this last picture you can see the shoes and his hands:



Thanks for looking!! Cheesy

Thanks, TroubleT, Momof2! and CMB!

How did you do the hair?

I cut threads of wool, a knot at the top, then (partly) unruffled the thread. I attached the knots to his head.
Maybe not the usual way of doing that, but I couldn't think of any other way, hahaha!  Smiley

Hope it made sense, I sometimes find it difficult to find the right words to describe it!
