Here is Boogalou Bob the Football Player Poppet. I had made him for myself but my 11yr old son stole him from me. He also named him. I have always called my son Boogalou and my kids have this thing with Bob lately so the name came about. My 9yr old daughter took Bob to cheerleading practice with her last night and he was a hit with the cheerleaders. He was made from tan flanel, his hair is brown wool felt sewn on in strips and then cut. His pants are the exact color as my sons football pants, the shirt is a little different. I am going to have to work on clothes for the poppets due to the size I just can't get them the way I want. But for him it is fine because I would like to make football pads for him anyways will get to it soon. Now all he needs is a cheerleader which he will soon have. Anyways here is Boogalou Bob.
First off sporting my real football players number
With Helmet on
Holding helmet in his lap (this is how he is sitting on my sons shelf)
Back view of shirt. It isn't actually folded like that I just didn't fix it for the pic.
Finally next to a picture of my real football player which is where I wanted to put Bob but of course anything mom wants gets vetoed in this house. Oh well at least he is loved.
