Homeschooling explains a lot of my crafts!

We have a thing for Thor around here. You know, he's so strong and mighty. My son, probably like much of the 4 yr olds, loves him as well, and it so happens that he sports blue eyes and long blond hair just like him!

I was planning making him a real life size Mjolnir for his bday this weekend, but k_michele_craftyfae took care of that. I had to find something else... And if you do not know it already, I DO love to make dolls, so I decided that a posable dollhouse Thor dolly would be the perfect thing for my son.


He has a wire skeleton wrapped in clean carded wool and I ever so patiently wrapped everything in organic skin tone cotton. He is fully undressable.


For Asgard!!!
I tried very hard to keep a good balance and proportion and make his feet big enough so he can stand on it's own, with or without his boots, even with that big cloak of his and Mjolnir in his hand.


(chilling out at the Avenger's Mansion)
He is fully potionable, thus he can bend knees, arms, ankle and tilt his head (a little). I didn't bother trying to make him hands, he's so tiny!
His hair is a mohair crochet cap sewn onto his head. I used a lice comb to free all the mohair hairs. I used the european (waldorf) doll technique for his head.
His clothing is made of wool felt, black jersy knit, a tiny blue curtain leftover, and tiny pieces of leather scraps. And love. Lots and lots of love.

Can't wait to see my son's face when he open his gifts.
(and now I'm off to make a Captain America Tee)

Little Thor turned out great! I love how you put so much detail into such a little thing. I'm so glad he loves his hammer! It makes the headache of trying to draft a pattern (let alone my first structured pattern) for it all worth it!

Wow, this little guy is EPIC. I just love him to pieces. All that detail and making him poseable - brilliant job!

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.
