Psychiatrist Doll

21 Jun

Here’s my first attempt at a Boyfriend Doll, trying to copy  Yermit’s wonderful series of animal/human cloth dolls.

The head starts with a stuffed animal I purchased at the thrift store.  I removed the head at the neckline, took out the stuffing.  Then I cut out a circle in the face, removing the nose and mouth.

Next, I cut a new face piece – a circle of felt – and sewed it on the fur head.  This was the hard part.  Then added a felt stuffed nose.  The eyes were a special purchase of 9 mm sew-in doll eyes from Sassybears & Fabrics.

For the body, I used a piece of corduroy fabric and a modified rag doll pattern for a boy doll from Simplicity 7247.

The doll is 20 inches tall.    We’ll call him “Shrink” since he reminds us of a psychiatrist.

Here he is with shirt, chino pants, vest and bolo tie.  I’ll soon be working on a pair of shoes.

And the final accessories are shoes and a prescription pad.



Here’s the prescription pad up close:

    Nicely done! Great use of a vintage pattern too. Love the prescription pad and the pants – better than I do. 🙂
