A doll for my nephew

My nephew Henrik is beyond beautiful, amazing and all that. I adore him. He has a lovely, inquisitive, sensitive soul.

I gave him one of my children’s favorite baby books- the Swedish book Alfons Pekbok. Just like my kids, Henrik’s cousins, Henrik loves the book’s simplicity. His parents told me he particularly loves the page with Lisa, the doll.

They asked if I could make a version out of socks.

I witnessed Henrik’s first viewing of the doll today when his Dad, Fredrik (my wonderful little brother), read the book and unveiled Lisa when he got to Henrik’s favorite page. I’m glad to say, Henrik smiled!

Recall my giant custom order!

All the sock monkeys are now shipped to Australia (the ones that went by air are shipping quick.  Two large boxes via surface are SLOWWWWWW. Hopefully they will arrive to their new home soon!)

Here are the last 4:

Charlie Chaplin

Dorian Gray:

Jedi Knight:

Mona Lisa:

What does “circe” “beetle” and the letter “V” have in common? A fabulous customer in Australia!
