1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Oswald, the blue octopus, for my son. on: November 22, 2008 09:20:31 AM
I love it.  I had a lot of trouble sewing the tentacles onto my octopus.  Did you come up with any easy tricks when you came to that part?

Those are so much cuter than my pumpkins turned out last yr.  I should try making them w/ 6 pieces instead of 4 : (

Here is my first, and still favorite, stuffed creature:

I saw this in a very small form on a site for sale somewhere and just made a really big version of it.

I haven't tried it yet, but I have a 2D I'm working on and was thinking of trying that batting stuff to stuff my 2D guy.  Do you think that would work?

I don't know if this is what you're looking for....
I just made a round creature (leaving a small opening at the bottome to stuff) and then sewed on some separate tentacles before sewing him up.  I don't have an exact pattern.  I did get frustrated making this guy and am looking for something better to work with myself.  But I still love him.

A-dori-ble - perhaps give him some dentures that taste like old man's mouth...

I think a 2-D horse would be good.  You might have to break up the work for this girl, but the end result could be great.
Here is something similar that I did - I made this giraffe for my sister by cutting out a profile of the giraffe, sewing it together, and sewing on legs.  This took me a long time, but I sewed on all the spots and had to sew the outline 2 or 3 times to make sure it was closed tight.  I think it would be easy to make a much simpler version for your horse idea.  And paiting spots would probably be easier and more fun.
