Earlier this month I advertised that I was taking commissions on Facebook, and I got two requests. One was for Alot, which I made over the weekend and blogged about yesterday, and the other was from my dad, who requested a doll of his favorite baseball player, the Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver. After brief discussion, he and I decided that I would make it for him as a Christmas gift instead of as a commission. Despite the amount of time I've got to do this one, I really felt like making it anyway, for a simple reason: the core of this doll would be a simple male body, which would have lots of uses, some related to upcoming holidays (for example, I could make a santa claus! or a Frankenstein! or a pilgrim) so I planned out a body, and here it is!
I'm very happy with it, it looks pretty much exactly how I imagined it in my head. My only concern is that the head might be a little too small. My mom thinks it is. What do ya'll think, are my proportions off? If so, how?
By tomorrow, I hope to have his hat and shirt done I've started both already, but I had to pause on the hat because it will be crocheted directly onto the head, whereas the shirt will be removable. And then he'll be finished! (no pants!) ;)
