I was looking for something different for this challenge and came up with two little construction projects of my own.
I bought this golliwog in kit form at the Hobart Doll Show a couple of years ago and made it up as a present for Naomi. I had decided for some reason to document the making of it although I don’t think I took one of the finished golly.
By the way I hope that nobody is offended by golliwogs, they are very contentious these days but to me they were always just toys and I didn’t relate them to people in any way.
Naomi bought a teddy bear who was in need of repairs. I had to reattach his head and make him new ears and replace an eye. These photos are from the reconstruction process. I used the cyan filter feature to make the details stand out a bit more clearly. You will be happy to know that Teddy made a good recovery after surgery.
