such a headache!

Here is the doll that has caused me such a headache these last few days. I've never made a doll before. I didn't use a pattern and it was very much a case of trial and error - quite a few errors in fact! The thing I found most difficult was making the doll look like the character it is supposed to look like. I'm worried that it looks a bit like a character from Coraline. In itself this would not be a problem (I'm itching to see this film) but it wasn't quite the look I was going for :o)
Anyone want to make a stab at the name of this character? at least this way I'll know if it does actually look like the character!

Oh what an adorable doll!!! I can't guess the name (but probably because I don't remember the programme - not because it doesn't look right!!!)


Really fantastic!!!
