More pics of Miss Bojangles

Miss Bojangles is a sweet knitted tap dancer doll that I designed, which is part of the Summer 2011 issue of Petite Purls.  If you are a knitter (or into sewing or crochet) you must check out this adorable all-toys issue.  There are loads of cute patterns in it, all available for free!  Here's the link to Petite Purls.

The pictures that appeared in the issue were all taken by Brandy Fortune of Petite Purls.  I love that this makes them all part of a cohesive whole.  But I have lots more pictures of Miss Bojangles that I took before I sent her off for her official photoshoot, and I thought I'd share them here on the blog (my projects page is updated too, on

Here is a shot of her shoes - I think the shoes are one of the most interesting things about her & I think they turned out pretty cute:


Here's a side shot, which shows her ponytail and shirt pretty well:

The next two are on my ravelry projects page - a sitting shot & a close-up of her face:

Here's a standing up shot - she's being held in place with a heavy flashlight, if I remember right.  Don't actually knit the big bulge on to her left side!

Here's another face close-up.  I love how the easy step of pulling a little bit of yarn through the French knot really adds so much twinkle and life to her face!

I love having  lots and lots of pictures of any knitting project I'm working on, so I'm hoping that these additional pictures may be helpful to anyone making Miss Bojangles.  And if you do knit her, please send me pictures - I'd love to see them!
