Dean Brody

Not long ago I made a mini Dean Brody Doll! 
And I just had to make him a mini Alien....
Well look who got their doll! Dean made a stop here at the Encana Events Centre, and they presented him with his dolls!
I love the smile on his face :)

The Cove

A while back I made this little guy for the wonderful people over at The Cove/OPS. 
And they sent me back this amazing photo of the dolphin that I made for them, next to their Oscar win!
This Documentary was hard for me to watch, but I am glad I did. It shines a light on the Annual Dolphin Drive Hunts in Taiji. 

And now I am working on a few more projects for OPS, so check back because I'll be sharing these patterns too!

The Goldbergs!

I am a big fan of The Goldbergs....they totally remind me of my family! And I absolutely adore the Mother Beverly Goldberg, she is hilarious! So I had to make a mini Beverly....you can see my original post here!
Well I also made a few mini Beverly dolls for the wonderful folks from The Goldbergs! Here is the amazing Wendi McLendon Covey with her mini Beverly Doll!
And I made one for the real Adam Goldberg. And he sent me these really cool photos, he took his mini Beverly to the final table reading!
Here's Sean Giambrone with mini Beverly!
And he sent me this amazing gift!!
I love this show so much, everyone in my family watches it together! I think I might need to create a few more mini Goldberg family members in the future :)

Take long strips of black yarn and embroider on your hair and eyebrows. And I took a few short pieces of yarn and used the loop method to give him some spiked hair at the front. Use thread to sew thin blue and burgundy stripes on the shirt. Then sew on your mouth.
