My Coraline Swap Box

The box I sent out in the Coraline Swap arrived about a week ago, and since the recipient has blogged it up, I can share it here, too.
From the moment I heard about the swap, I knew what I wanted to put in it. On the very same day that I saw the movie, I picked up a book called Creepy Cute Crochet, so I made a Coraline doll in the same style. I also knew I wanted to make a mouse, but since I didn't think I would have time to experiment on a circus outfit (as it was, most of my time was taken up with making and remaking the raincoat, and figuring out the directions for making the hair), I made one of the real Mr. B's mice, even though they never actually make an appearance in the movie (which is why it has safety eyes instead of button eyes). Unfortunately, some of the red velvet residue got on the dolls, but otherwise, they came out rather nicely, I think.
