These are not really playthings, but made these for bambam91 for her first swap. I stalked and saw she liked Nightmare Before Christmas, so I dediced I wanted to do the  Jack Skellington. My nephew put on the movie for me so I could get a sense of the feel of the movie.

Inspiration


I hand sewed all the pieces and dyed with acrylic paint. Used pipe cleaners for the limbs and melted the felty part for Jacks hands and toes. I twisted yarn around Sally's limbs and went to town on colors.



Here is the happy couple.



And a close up of Jack's bat tie. The sparkly eyes are just straight pins I had holding it in place and decided I liked the look.  Wink



Here is a group shot.



OK, so I've never done arigarumi but decided with a very thin thread I may be able to pull off zero.



and the trial doll I sent to AuntiKar for the BBW swap as an extra.



I had so much fun with this swap, but it took FFOOORRRREEEVVER to get to its destination.

Sally was holding a rose but didn't get a pic I guess.

ETA: Here is a link to bambam's post with her pics.
