    I wanted to make my18 month old grandson a doll. And thought this would be a good one to do. I did modify the pattern a little, just the face. The pattern is McCalls, and they said to just glue on felt eyes and nose. I thought that looked cheap and after all the work it took to make the rest I did not want that. There are 85 yo-yo's in him, and they took forever. I told my husband not to volunteer me to make one for anyone else, unless they want to pay about 300 bucks. You were also supposed to use nearly a yard of five different fabrics, but I had five yards of lightweight desert camo, so I used that. Now for the real test on the 26th, when Liam opens the present. Will he like it?

    He has such a sweet face, who wouldn't like him. Best use for yoyo's I've seen! What did you "string" them on?

    glad you didn't glue stuff on, that's not a good idea for a child

    That monkey is so cute and huggable. He will love it and no one else has one like it.

    He's very cute. Just consider it "labor", birthing a new gift.
