Sew & Sew #004: The Alan Dart Desperate Dan


Desperate Dan was very easy to make up.  the only taxing thing about him was the embroidery of the face.

You can tell that this was one of Alan’s earlier designs, the doll itself is very basic, to be honest, I found that it was like making up an old 80’s Jill Gammon toy.

As there is no shaping in the back seam.  This make up showed a great example of how mattress  stitch is a wonder when achieving an invisible seam.

For those of you who would like to use mattress stitch on your next project I have found this fantastic demonstration on YouTube:

So Desperate Dan is now finished, Daddy Rivett has his camera at the ready, pictures will be on there way soon.

Happy Knitting,
