Last summer I bought a doll panel called Lil Superheroes. I bought it for Super Girl, but it came with a Super Boy and today was Finn's first birthday. You may remember he was the little boy, the son of Michael's cousin, who had to have open heart surgery aged 4 months to fix multiple holes in his heart. Well he's a little super hero so I decided to make it for his birthday.
Well, it will be something of a miracle if Super Girl ever gets made. This was not an enjoyable make and I have not inherited my Grandmother's doll-making abilities. Firstly the fabric was more like a tea-towel than quilting cotton, and it frayed a lot. And it was stiffer. And it was an absolute pig to turn the limbs through.
But it is done, and it was gifted and well-recieved today - Finn's Mum wanted to know where I'd bought it - I take that as a compliment (especially given the rather dodgy final seam thanks to the fraying I encountered).
This is a quarter 4 Finish Along finish - squeaking in before the deadline! You can find my original list here.
