The Kidnapper from Cute Dolls by Aranzi Aronzo
Tuesday, 1 June 2010
I’ve never really been a fan of the cutey dolls often seen in craft books, they’re fun to make and look at… but in the end I want something interesting that’ll take a place of pride on my cupboard.
I recently borrowed ‘Cute Dolls’ by Aranzi Aronzo and was immediately blown away by how… cute everything was! There’s a smorgasboard of cute yet strangely alluring dolls to be made, but when I turned the page and saw The Kidnapper, I knew I had my man.
It’s my first time making a sewn toy, I’ve been a little enthusiastic about the stuffing and my kidnapper is looking a little more bulked up than you’d expect a person his nefarious nature to be. My ladder stitch is atrocious and right now is definitely one of those things better left hidden away.
My only complaint? He seems a little lonely now… maybe he needs a friend?
