I have been trapped in the house on bed rest since surgery #4 on my foot. Honestly this reminds me of people who are on house arrest. I am stuck at home with no car, not allowed to do much of anything and there is this big heavy cast attached to my leg and I spend much of my day fighting the urge to cut this damned thing off. BUT… it’s healing, all looks good, and I am almost halfway there.
That being said…. I am bored out of my skull. I have been playing around with amigurumi (fancy word for stuffed dolls) ideas. I suck at following patterns, I prefer to play around and figure it out on my own. I have had some cute little dolls, and by cute I mean evil octopus, a couple of grim reapers, and a skeleton bride and groom.
I got tired of fat dolls and decided to try my hand at coming up with an actual doll. Of course I am not a cute little girl doll kind of girl. So I started with a skull head and now it is looking like my take on Jack Skellington. I have been tracking my progress as I go and making adjustments as necessary. Right now I am not too happy with the hands and still need shoes and some more details but I wanted to share how he is coming along.
Still figuring out if I am going to change the hands. Of course he will need his white chest piece and I may attempt the bat collar. The hat was a random decision, resulting from discovering I made 3 leg pieces instead of 2. My youngest daughter wanted a rainbow scrunchie so I stuck it on his hat till she comes home.
I will post pics when I am done and try to translate my randomness into a pattern to share.
