The Sailor Prince Who Was Stranded on the Shores of Corona Del Mar
“Shipwrecked! Not even a shred of my ship or crew in sight!” The sailor prince exclaimed to himself.
This sailor prince doll was made in a day, when all of a sudden I had a vision and a compelling need to sew him. His boots are made with leather. It was so much fun to sew in the details. He used to have a sword, but the sword led to less than gentle play, so I had to hide it from little hands. It is personally meaningful to me that the sailor’s weather worn coat was made with a pair of nicely ripped pants that my firstborn had outgrown. I remember I used to worry if he will ever grow big enough to outgrow those pants. Well, now he has. And the pants are on my sailor prince (and Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights). Ah! The secret joys of mothering and dollmaking combo.
