A portrait Doll of my little Bro.
A long while ago I designed and sewed up some soft dolls for children’s toys. The original pattern for the body was from an early issue of Mollie Makes magazine. The name Portrait Doll stuck as they all looked like someone I knew.
I recently found them whilst sorting fabric piles and noticed one looked very much like my brother. I carefully wrapped the doll and sent it to him in time for his daughters 4th birthday
He has a ‘man bag’ with his daily copy of the telegraph newspaper. He has a watch, a tattoo, an unshaved beard and suitably distressed jeans. In short he looks very much like my little Bro!
His astute 4 year old, after opening the parcel announced “its just like you daddy!” High praise indeed?
Have you made anything for children lately?
