My newest addition to the CTM amigurumis is Nurse Franklin! The One Show revealed this Trixie doll to surprise Helen George in tonight’s episode (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b007tcw7). Watching the dolls being mentioned on TV was so surreal, “like dancing to the sound of the river and Ella Fitzgerald.” (Definitely “a pivotal moment”).
To make the dolls more varied I decided to give her a clinic outfit as well as the typical midwife get up. The best part of designing her was definitely the eyelashes and makeup, which I’ve never really attempted on an amigurumi before. It’s so fun to try and match the dolls as closely as possible to the character, and of course this crocheted midwife “operates strictly on telepathy!”
