Making Sad Sack

I'm taking a break today from my CBT series to share one of my recent crafty creations.

My son used to have a very mangy, dare I say feral, soft toy dog called "Sad Sack".  It used to be his father's as a baby, and was passed on to GeekV1R1 when he was a baby.

Sadly, Sad Sack got lost some months ago on an outing.  Impulsively, I promised to try to recreate Sad Sack from the one clear photograph we could find of him!

Last weekend, I finally got around to fulfilling that promise and this photograph is the result.  Whilst his head is not totally true to my memory of the original (it was the one unclear portion in the photograph), his owner is clearly pretty chuffed and they've been inseparable all week!

I'm pretty proud that I managed to make him a new soft toy with absolutely no pattern to work from!
