You asked for it - now here he is. A boy doll! Meet Karl. Karl with a K. He's a cuddly, huggable doll - who's tough as nails when he slips on his cape and mask. My daughter pointed out that you could use the same pattern to make a companion Bad Guy - she suggested dressing him in black and white stripes, giving him a frown instead of a smile, adding stubble to his chin, and giving him a black mask and no cape. Brilliant! He's 16 inches tall from head to toe, and 8 inches across the widest part of his hips. A word about difficulty level. This pattern is more about patience than skill. If you just bought your first sewing machine and have never used it before - this isn't the pattern for you. Start with some simple straight line sewing and get a feel for your machine before you tackle this. If you feel comfortable with your machine, if you're able to smoothly control the speed and you've shed the fear of sewing over your own fingers - then you can sew this pattern. There are parts where you'll need to sew slowly - and I tell you in the pattern just where those tricky parts are and what to look out for to be successful. The pattern has links to video tutorials teaching you all the skills you'll need to make the doll. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY simple sewing basic embroidery stitches - nothing too fancy SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 16 inches tall from head to toe 8 inches across widest part of his hips
