UPDATE 01/27/21: The eBay auction has ended and this Bernie Sanders crochet doll has raised over $40,000 for Meals on Wheels – Sander’s favorite charity. the winning bid was $20,300 which will be doubled by eBay who comments was inspired by tobey time crochet’s decision to donate the proceeds, CNN reported.
‘i was talking with another craftsman friend who told me that bernie had just sold hoodies and donated all the proceeds to meals on wheels vermont, and i knew that was what i wanted to do with the doll that I had made said tobey hook time. “With the attention it was getting, I was hoping Meals on Wheels would get a good donation.”
the american inauguration took place last week and while it was filled with tension, the internet gave us a good laugh, especially with the viral photo of bernie sanders. we first reported a meme generator that lets you place bernie anywhere in the world and we’re back with a collectible crochet figure of the senator being auctioned. the current auction?

Created by Tobey Time Crochet, the Bernie Sanders crochet doll has been meticulously crafted, leaving no detail to chance. it includes hair, goggles, a blue surgical mask and mittens. measuring approximately 9”, it was created to sit on, exactly as it did at the inauguration. ‘so i already had a bernie sanders pattern that i wrote a year ago and now i’m modifying it to include the jacket and mittens!’ tobey time crochet said on the facebook post. “I saw a reporter on the news asking him about his mittens and you know what he said?” fashion?? every American needs his $2,000 check!
Like us, Bernie Sanders has fun with the influx of creativity generated around his photo, but he also uses it to raise money for charity, turning fun events into good ones. “we are going to sell sweaters and t-shirts all over the country”, the sanders told CNN. “And all the money that will be raised, which I think will be a few million dollars, will go to programs like Meals on Wheels that feeds low-income seniors.”
For those interested in creating their own crochet Bernie Sanders doll, Tobey Time Crochet has made the patterns available – just note that they are not intended for beginners.
