|Trying on a pipe cleaner moustache|
I used his Superman guy as the basis to design and make a pattern for Black Adam.
Using black, yellow, and cream colours of fleece, I cut out all my pieces.
The fleece was very thick, and I had a hard time seeing through it to trace the face for embroidery. But I had a brainstorm to take it to work and use one of our old xray viewers as a light box, and it worked great! The face I embroidered is very similar to Superman's face. The eyebrows are more evil though.
I put everything all together in a similar fashion to how I made my other dolls, which was a mistake in hindsight. After I had constructed the arms and legs separately, I realized that the Superman guy was made by making a front and a back and sewing them together. Ah well, it just meant a little more handsewing than I was hoping to do, but in the end, I think he turned out great!

So Happy Birthday to a great little guy! Let's hope this year brings as much fun and laughs as the last two did!
