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:
