Amelia 'Amy' Pond is one of my favourite companions from Doctor Who and I knew, after I made a little 11th Doctor plush, I needed to make her, too.  



Oh! And her hair is NOT that fluro/eye-blinding orange colour. :/ I have photographed her twice but whenever I put any kind of lighting on her, I can't get a good picture. I may have to have yet another go tomorrow. It is actually a really nice orange like this (work in progress pic):



I've been working to try and add in more details to my plushies -- since most of my plushies are one of a kind dolls, I figure I might as well make them the very best, with as many details, as I can. Wink  I used silver metallic thread for her 'zipper' which I loveeeee. And bonus, I even got to use some of those "fancy" stitches on my machine that I never thought I'd use. Cheesy



And while I had both Amy and the Doctor, I knew I had to get a "permission to hug' photo.


Thanks for looking! (And if anyone has any tips on photographing orange, feel free to leave them! Wink)

WOW WOW WOW! I can't believe I haven't seen your work before, these are TOO CUTE!

If you don't mind my asking, how did you make her hair? I've only put yarn hair on dolls before!

Thank you for all the wonderful feedback guys!  Kiss

Ah! Permission to hug! Haha. Love, love. Is Rory next? Wink

You're amazing! Love the details. Smiley

I don't have plans to make Rory yet - I'd want to make him in his Last Centurion outfit and I'm not sure I could pull it off successfully. Wink

WOW WOW WOW! I can't believe I haven't seen your work before, these are TOO CUTE!

If you don't mind my asking, how did you make her hair? I've only put yarn hair on dolls before!

Thanks so much!  The hair is just fake fur sewn in place. Smiley I have used yarn for hair before (where the style couldn't be achieved with fur) and I find it much easier & quicker to work with. And definitely less messy, haha. Cheesy

you again!
you really are  after my heart Smiley

Aw, you're so sweet. And Yep, me again! I have a lot more little guys coming up so I hope you're not sick of me yet. Wink

I love your dolls so much!!!! I had to add this one over to Geek Crafts too. Smiley

Ahh! I LOVE GeekCrafts! Cheesy Thank you so much, I'm honoured!  Kiss
