Millions of Americans are sold on Bernie Sanders, but one Bernie Sanders doll is sold out. Professional seamstress Emily Engel is feeling the #bern. She's been offered contracts and toy deal, but she's happy to keep sewing the doll, one stitch at a time, Emily is the creator of the popular handmade doll “Lil Bernie.” First shared on facebook and instagram, the doll went viral. Emily, who had vowed to donate $25 per doll to the Vermont Senator's campaign, soon met the donation cap.
