Pattern Description:

Here'a a jaunty Space Boy to travel with your child to the farthest reaches of the galaxy! Inspired by a mid-century illustration of a space boy and space girl, this doll is made of the right stuff to fly into outer space with your imaginative child.

This easy to make doll can be made from new or repurposed fabrics with some stretch to them. Although you may machine sew the doll, hand sewing is required to attach arms, cuffs and helmet rim, hair and eyes.

The SpaceBoy shown was made from all repurposed materials: black wool skirt, cream felted wool blanket, stretch velvet jacket, stretch velvet pullover, white wool sweater. He was stuffed with wool fleece.
