Good Grief

Over the last few weeks, I've seen many crafty bloggers out there posting their new Halloween and Christmas projects. Already?! I felt so far behind, and it's only August. So, after browsing the interwebs for pics of old cartoons I used to watch, I came across this:

...and it hit me - my Christmas project this year will be the Peanuts gang.

After scribbling out a rough pattern, cutting and sewing some felt, after a few hours, Chuck was born.

Going through my stash, I have enough felt to make a Linus next. Then a trip to the store for Lucy, Sally, Snoopy, and whoever is left that I have time for.

Might have to make the tree too. Those store-bought Charlie Brown trees they have every year are about twice the size of the doll, so that won't work. Gotta start brainstorming.


  1. I adore Charlie Brown!
    I wish I had the skill to draw a pattern.
    Great job!

  2. Oh my gosh, that is ADORABLE! I can't believe you just free-handed that! Bravo. :)

  3. aww this is absolutely adorable! thanks so much for linking up to Handmade Tuesdays @ Ladybug Blessings!

  4. Love this post! Hope you'll link it and any other kid or teen related posts that you have to our "Crafts for Under Twenty Somethings" party tomorrow!


  5. So much love! I come from a very Peanuts-lovin' family, so this makes me grin ear to ear. His face is perfect, and all of the colours and shapes you've combined---the hat, the shoes, the very cool collar on the jacket---are fantastic.

  6. Hi!
    Awesome Chuck, looks just like him. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought
