Dora the Doorstop

So awhile ago I saw this I love it! I also needed a doorstop for my classroom door....However I do not have the skill to make that...Although I do have a sewing machine, I break it whenever I use it....so, I made Dora instead...

I had just started crocheting random leftover balls of pink yarn. Today I put the two together, they were blobs this morning...She doesn't have a mouth or nose, but I think that is fine.

I did have a frustrating moment. I knew I had some of those heavy beads you put in the bottom of shelf sitters to make them bottom heavy. Well I tore the room apart looking for the bag. Of course I couldn't find it, so I dumped what rice we had into a plastic bag and used that for the weight.

Then I went to get some yarn for the hair and of course found the bag with the beads! GRRRRRRR!!!!!!! But I think she is cute and I'm sure the kids will get a kick out of her...so she'll go to school with me on Monday...
