Uncle Sam Project

I know another project, so soon? Well, I knew I wanted to try my hand at an Uncle Sam Doll, but realized that I better get crackin, cuz by the time an auction ends and ships to his new owner the 4th will be over! So, I stopped working on my cute little strawberry doll and started this guy, this morning.

I was kinda nervous about how the heck I was gonna make it since I do not have a pattern....and to my surprise, I actually learned more than I thought in sewing and pattern drafting class. He is not put together at all. I have to sew him all together and grung him with coffee (his hair isn't even attached yet) but I was so happy about him, I had to share!

I hope I can get him finished by Monday or Tuesday. He is another one I would rather keep!! I do not have an Uncle Sam and I know if someone else had one out, I would probably bid on him...LOL Man, I do not know if being a collector is a conflict in this doll making or not....LMAO
It is hard to part with such fine cuties!! But, if I can get big bids on my art, then I guess it is worth it.
