Title: Captain Psychedelic Doll
Post by: Lionne on May 02, 2011 11:11:32 AM
Years ago I bought this neon colored yarn, which lay in my stash for quite a while. Later I bought a book about making dolls and stuffed animals, where I found a cute pattern for a sailor.

Put crazy yarn, sailor pattern and plastic flowers together and you'll get this:



I made a lot of stuff, but this doll is definitely one of my absolutely favourites. I'm so sorry I lost it.  :'(

I'm so happy how the face turned out. I've never embroidered anything before, and this smile looks just perfect to me.



I just love the Captain.

Very cute and colorful! Maybe you didn't lose him, maybe he was called to the sea and sailed away on a long voyage.  At least if that's the case you know he's happy :)

Thank you for your nice comments. ^^

striker, this is a cute idea. But in fact I had to leave him in Hamburg the last time I moved. Well, at least they have a big harbour there. So it's possible he left his box and now travels the seas. ^^
