I made this little dolly as a Christmas present for Jude...he is a little black apple doll. This is the second black apple doll I've made, and I actually started this little guy back in June when I made the first one for a Craft Hope project. Dolly number 1, who I named Gabriel, is in an orphanage in Nicaragua hopefully snuggled in some little ones arms...or let's make that an even better image...Gabriel travelled to a new home with some little one who once lived in an orphanage in Nicaragua but now has a very loving family to care for him. I like that one much better.
Jude's doll, who does not have a name yet, ended up looking like a little gnome. I made him a pair of overalls out of a super soft cotton velour type material and his sweater and hat is from a green felted sweater that I made a purse out of a couple of years ago. Nothing gets wasted around here. After I got all the clothes sewed up, I realized Jude has a favorite outfit in just these same colors....his carhartt overalls and a green hooded sweater.
Yesterday, we tried to make the doll some pajama pants, and I had so many problems I just had to walk away from it. Bad timing I guess.
I have a couple of more handmade Christmas presents that I made to share over the next couple of weeks...but if you would like to take a peek at the handmade Christmas presents I received pop over here.
