Everyone say say hi to Lovesick Larry. He’s a sympathy doll made by Flickr user “brooklyn sunset”:

We were inspired by Bre’s Sympathy Doll project in his Weekend Projects podcast. We got out our 40 yr old Singer sewing machine and used my grandpa’s old Pendleton robe for sentimental value and we now have Lovesick Larry.

Truly heartwarming – makes us appreciate red flannel a whole lot more.
