This was the first doll I made. The head reminded me of a seahorse, so I decided to make "fins" instead of arms.
Here's what he looks like laying down. I was designing these dolls as I went along, so I'd modify things in later dolls if I wasn't totally pleased with something. In this case, I thought the feet were too big, as well as too curvy.
The hair is silver yarn. I ran a long running stitch along the top and back of the head. I crocheted the hair, catching my crochet work on the running stitches, as I progressed. In other words, the hair is firmly attached!
The polka dot fabric is from a thrift shop t-shirt, and the blue stripe fabric was from my stash. I liked the way the stripes met at his tummy seam.
