Granny tried. She really did!
From The Nashua Telegraph:
Marian Fluet, 94, has been sewing for decades.
But the presidential inauguration inspired a unique project for Fluet: lifelike Barack and Michelle Obama dolls.
Day by day, from February to June, Fluet has crafted the president and first lady. With artificial fur hair and ears stitched to scale, Barack stands at 32 inches. Michelle, at his side, measures at 28 inches and sports a black wig.
