Grell's Sebastian Doll by PJpup Grell's Sebastian Doll by PJpup
This is a late Christmas present for :iconnefairyious: It's Grellís Sebastian doll! I hope you like him.

He turned out to be much more of a task than I anticipated. I used white cotton fabric that I dyed brown with coffee.(It took 2 days!) The colorís rather inconsistent but I think it worked out okay considering he's supposed to look old. Then I machine stitched all the pieces together and stuffed them before using embroidery floss to hand stitch around all the seams to make it look like he was stitched with that, then I attached his limbs using the same floss. I was using two reference pics one had a gimpy leg while the other had a gimpy arm so I combined them. His hair is made of yarn, I tried to style it but that didnít go so well. Last was to sew the blobs of polyfil onto him since heís supposed to be falling apart, that was so difficult. Polyfil does not like to be stitched.

The hardest part for me was making it look bad. I mean heís supposed to look old, tattered, badly stitched and falling apart and thatís just not how I like my things to look!
All in all Iím happy with how he turned out, though if I were to do it again(which I really donít want to) thereís a lot Iíd change.

...I love using coffee to stain things... 83

...things that I actually WANT stained, of course.

It is fun, but also time consuming and inconsistent. I hate staining things that shouldn't be stained though.

If he is we will find him! Even though you already did. I'm still upset about that secret signing thing they did. I can't believe they did that.

I wouldn't have known if it weren't for my veteran con-goer contact! I got lucky because she called me about it!
