custom pokemon doll…

here’s a quicky-

my son had a friend sleepover not too long ago and he really wanted to “knit” something with his friend.  what he meant was “sew” a doll like his sister had done a few days before.  he specifically wanted to make his own pokemon doll AND they wanted them done that night so they could sleep with them.

okay….how can we do this fast in a simple fun way so the boys get what they want? i thought of an easy peasy approach and the boys were thrilled with the results.

first, i asked them each to draw up a pokemon character of their choice.

second, i then scanned their drawing to size it to their liking.

third, the images were printed out onto inkjet cotton sheets made for quilting projects.  i had a few left over from a previous project, a baby quilt i made for my nephew.

fourth, the boys each sewed their pokemon to a piece of organic cotton muslin.  they used my machine very very slowly with my supervision.

fifth, they stuffed their dolls with batting and then i hand-sewed them closed.

TA-DA!!! CUSTOM POKEMON DOLLS, and i had 2 very very happy little boys that night.
