Do you know what a Sack Boy is?
Neither do I.
But, that didn't keep me from making one today.....
Actually, I made two...a tan one and a green one.
You see, my grandchildren have me wrapped tightly around their little fingers.
And that means, that when Oliver and Ezra started
begging asking me to
go into the boy-doll making business
they pretty much knew that I would cave in and say "yes".
First, they had to get on the computer and show me what a Sack Boy looked like.
Then, they helped me find a free pattern. Oliver is 7. His brother is 4.
You can find the tutorial here that we decided on.
There sure were a bunch of little pieces!
I needed tweezers and cotton balls to stuff the silly things.
Truthfully, making dolls and stuffed animals has never been my favorite thing.
But, then, I'm wrapped around their little fingers. (Did I say that already?!)
I persevered. All. Day. Long. Pretty much.
In the end, these guys came out kinda cute.
(They remind me of The Gingerbread Man, but don't tell the boys that I said that.)
They both have birth defects: one a twisted belly and the other funky hands,
but, that just makes them even more special.
And, what's a doll without clothes?
Of course, they needed wardrobes.
I called Oliver to tell him the news that the Sack Boys were ready.
I'm sure if he could drive, he'd be here by now!
