My niece begged me to make her a Bernie doll, which I did…but, my brother said it would not be complete without a chair, so it took me longer since I had to use what I had on hand.
The doll was fairly easy, with the hard parts being the glasses and the frigging mittens.
I used metallic embroidery threads wrapped on the wires to make them look better and I just painted some scrap fleece to make the mittens.
The chair is cardboard from some packing in a Wayfair box that I covered with some soft suiting fabric. The legs are painted corks from wine bottles that were consumed during the last four years…I had lots of corks… .
I think Bernie would have looked less grumpy if he had a more comfy chair…
Anyway, it is done and on it’s way to her!
