March has been a very wolfy month for me. No sooner had I finished the Fruit Brute mask Sackboy then yet another wolf-themed doll order came in from a co-worker. He wanted a Sackboy doll based on the Teen Wolf character played by Michael J. Fox in the 1980’s. He even provided some nifty screen shots of Teen Wolf in his basketball outfit for reference.
The base head and body were crocheted as usual from Red Heart Soft and Bernat Satin yarns, but once the main doll was finished, stuffed and assembled, I crocheted some furry overlay pieces using Lion Brand Fun Fur in Chocolate using a large size K hook and big, loose stitches. The overlays went on the legs, outer surfaces of the arms, and the head and chin. I finished the head by adding an extra row of regular yarn around the edge of his face. The uniform was crocheted with yellow Peaches & Creme cotton yarn with numbers made from chains of black crochet thread. The basketball was also made from Peaches & Creme cotton.
