I made these two dolls for some friends who had to undergo surgery recently. They’re little sympathetic healers, bringing love and “get well soon” energy to the recipients.

Popdoll for Oliver
The first one I made for Oliver, a 3 month old baby who had to undergo heart surgery.

Popdoll for Elias
The second one I made for Elias, who had surgery to remove thyroid cancer.

Each doll is about 10″ tall, made of muslin, with yarn hair and a felt appliqued heart, a bandage around the affected area, and a handknit sweater. Elias’s doll also got a scarf, because I figured after throat surgery he could use it.
