I have been wanting to make Keenan a doll for a while now, but have simply not found the time, especially due to the fact that I have never yet completed a doll, something I plan to rectify in the future. So instead of making one myself I ordered from a sweet mama up in Canada who makes lovely dolls. Do check her dolls here, although I know she is taking a break until after Christmas.
Isn't he precious, I just love him, and really hope that Keenan will feel the same.
I wanted to make a bed/carrier for him, as we will be moving around in the near future, and I know Keenan will like to have a place where he belongs. I used, of course:), a felted sweater, cut three pieces and sewed the sides onto the the bottom piece.
The sides are a bit wobbly but hold up nicely when he is inside.
With a leftover piece of the felt which I used for Kaleena's crayon holder, I sewed up a little mattress to go inside, and stuffed it with lama wool. I used a piece of another sweater to make a little pillow, also stuffed with lovely lama wool gifted by the sweet Jenny.. Thanks Jenny!
Then made a matching blanket to which I added a little heart to tie in with the mattress.
All in all the effect is lovely, and I am really happy with how it turned out
I used an old onesie, and turned it into this jumpsuit for the doll as well. It fits him really well.
Finally I finished knitting this sweater and scarf for him as well, must make sure he will stay warm during the cold winter, wool baby, just like Keenan used to be...
Nice and cozy...
~with so much love~
