I first heard the story told on Reading Rainbow, a show that was on PBS. I fell in love with it and went to the library to check out the book for my youngsters to read it to them. It has some really fun illustrations. I usually give my dolls more realistic features, but stayed true to the original illustrations while making this doll. The character in the book is a bit stouter than my Joseph, but I like the way he turned out.
Thanks for the "Rocks!"

That's utterly fabulous - thrift, storytelling, imaginative play, craft... the list is endless! I love his face, so expressive. Have you ever made any puppets? You would make fabulous hand puppets!

Thank you. I've only made puppets by up-cycling stuffed animals for my kids. I have thought about making marionettes.

You should definitely give it a try, the skills are very similar, from what little I know. And your expressive needle-sculpted faces and hands would be perfect for puppets.

I love the story, it reminds me of my dad who is always reusing things my mom would rather toss out.
