Group shot

Now the background....
My son at 5 years old (almost) has just discovered Moshi Monsters.  He wanted a soft play one.  So yesterday DS and I made our interpretation of one.  My son did everything except cutting out, pinning and the hand sewing of the head onto the neck.  Yes he used the sewing machine.  For the first time too.  Moshi is made from blue fleece and Felt.  He was a quick make as Ross made him yesterday afternoon.  Though I think my son is very talented.
Here is Moshi

without jacket & his back

A few years ago Ghillie kindly gave me the poppet pattern.  I made Deema the Poppet first.  But DS wanted a boy one.  He was 2 1/2 at the time.  So one Christmas i made Jake, the Giant Poppet.  Jake's hair wasa strip of white faux fur I had lying around.  He is about 2 foot tall!  His clothes are 3 month old baby clothes my son once wore!  Yep he is THAT Big.  He's here now because I forgot to post him a few years ago.
Here is Jake front and back

Cute. Your son really loves them too.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo

These are awesome!  Really love Moshi.  My daughter is a huge fan and I have been planning to make her a katsuma (bunny) based on the one she designed.  I feel very inspired now!!  Smiley

Wow!  You're right, your son is very talented.  Beautiful job on that doll (although I'm not familiar with the character).

I also love Jake the giant poppet.  One of these days I'll make me a poppet...

thank you.  Ross is very proud of moshi and himself.  He wants to take it for show and tell on Wednesday and can't wait.

DHubby frowned at me when I said I was going to teach Ross to sew and use a machine.  DH is a bloke, so sewing machines are for girls!  He's now convinced otherwise and is very proud of our little boy.

Ross wants to make himself a fishing vest next.
