I've been feeling a bit... erm, craftipated, and decided on a simple & fun project that might help me get back on the crafty track.

I've seen Snape as a dammit doll before and decided to do one of my own.  I've left him with a, shall we say "blank" expression?   (Read: I suck at faces.)

One of my friends has suggested Voldie, Umbridge & the Malfoys as possible future candidates to be dammit dolled.  Now I need a Snaperific poem to go along with him.


For the pattern, I drew out the shape I wanted then cut the hands, feet & head away from the body, cut those out of muslin and the body out of black adding seam allowance to all the pieces.  I then attached hands, feet & head, then sewed front to back.  I stuffed it & stitched up the hole I'd left for stuffing.  For the hair... I wrapped black yarn around a 6" ruler, then stitched it down the middle, hand-stitched it to his head then gave it a trim so to achieve those "greasy black curtains" of hair.

I had some issues with the corners (under the arms, neck, etc).  I think it was more the fabric than the pattern.  The black fabric was a little too loosely woven, so the stitching was pulling out.  I think if I used a tighter fabric, I wouldn't have the same problems.

I'm may make some shoes and a cloak for him, but I haven't decided yet.  I kind of like him just the way he is.   Grin

A cloak would be awesome! Maybe not shoes, but I think a cloak would really look great. And a wand!! Ok, maybe I'm getting a bit carried away. Nice job!

Oh, and "craftipated" is so my new favorite word.  Grin

His hair is perfect - and I agree - "craftipated" is now in my vocabulary!

PS - what is a dammit doll?

Hehe, I've coined a new word. Cheesy

A dammit doll is to work out your pent up frustrations.  It has extra long legs so you can hold onto them while you beat it's head against whatever is convenient... wall, desk, etc and say "dammit, dammit, dammit."
