Sally and Jack, together at last!

At last, the love of Jack Skellington’s life–or death–has arrived at PeculiarCrochet!

Sally’s pattern was a lot more work than Jack’s because

1) She has curves

2) She has hair

3) She has a dress made up of lots of little different colored pieces of fabric, none of which I could find exact matches for at the fabric store

4) I had to make her at the right proportions to Jack so that they would look right together. I didn’t have to worry about that with him since he was the first.

I have been writing Sally’s pattern down as I made the doll but it is currently disorganized and out-of-order, written in my messy writing in an old high school math notebook. If you give me a few days to make it presentable, you too will soon be able to make your very own Sally doll!

    I LOVE SALLY! I feel especially privileged since I got to see the work in progress, and she is currently sitting atop my piano with my Jack Skellington!

    I think you do amazing work Assunta, and you inspired me to create my own doll patterns! It’s so much fun I think I could keep doing it forever!

    Sally and Jack look great together, by the way. Maybe Sally shoud stay at my house…………

    Nunnalynn! Wonderful, ingenious creation — as usual! We are so relieved here that Jack is no longer alone – had concerns about the kinds of looks he was getting from the Oogie Boogie Man…

    Would this be a good time to order one for my Jack and one for Momo’s Jack? Name your price.

      Thanks, Aunt Lynni, I’m so glad you like her! Now that you’ve brought up Oogie Boogie I kind of want to make a doll of him too (although I may have to teach Sally how to beat him up first, if he is going to be going after her man, haha.) I would be happy to make dolls for you and Momo. It might be awhile due to school and the complexity of the doll but I will make them a priority. I will get back to you about the price.

      • Lynn Said:

        Thanks, Baby! Of course, there’s no hurry – just knowing we’ve got one coming will keep us excited until you can get to them. Oogie Boogie would make a good subject. I think Sally will know instinctively how to protect her man Jack from any threats…

      • Assunta Said:

        You’re right. Sally is smart, I’m sure she and Jack will be fine. I’ll just give her a couple of aikido lessons to be extra sure 🙂
