Doug Number 2…..

Regular readers will remember when we first met Doug #2 he was all in pieces.  His new life had been laid out on the table and he just sitting there waiting for the right time for it to begin!

He sat there sulking for so long I had to take him in hand one afternoon and start looking at those lovely pins – his lovely legs that is 😊

Now, he was forever complaining about his thoughts not being recognised.  He had wanted me to begin at the top – with his head.  It’s a bit big and a little complicated I said, so for me the legs were the way to go.  That all very well,  he said, I really don’t have a leg to stand on as far as you’re concerned.


Of course you do – it is really lovely and soft and furry and look it has such a great colour coordinated foot pad that took quite a bit of fiddling to get right.

But that’s the problem, he retorted, I’ve no idea if it’s my left or my right one – AND – it’s so big.

That’s because one day soon (well sometime in the future) you are going to be a big boy – If you stand still you won’t keep falling over!

It’s over two weeks since I last saw Doug – he was so pleased when I told him he could now stand on his own two feet.

Oh they are lovely and soft and fluffy and – BIG.

Oops there he goes again.  Maybe I did make him two left feet after all 🙂 🙂

  1. My hat is off ot you, Doug Number 2 looks like he will be a beautiful specimen. On year, many decades ago, my Intermediate sewing class was commanded to sew about a hundred stuffed animals for a charity. The project was well beyond the skill level of most of the 12 year old students, who were learning introductory techniques in sewing. So the English teacher and I ended up sewing most of the stuffed animals ourselves… I wouldn’t tackle another in this lifetime! 🙂


    1. Maggie – Doug (2) is for a special child – Gt Grandson number 1. Hopefully he will look just like his older version sitting on the table who I made many years ago for a granddaughter.
      When you look back it’s amazing some of the things we were expected to do a school children – all in the name of charity.


  2. It will take him time to get his feet working properly, Cathy. You are a brave soul. I would never take on such a project.


    1. If I did it before Marie there no reason why I couldn’t do it again – well I’m hoping there isn’t. Even if it is a few years since I made the last one 😊
