Wow! Looking forward to the tutorial. Even if I hold a grudge against octopi for the actions of the one that attacked my foot last summer

Sometimes I use potpourri and place some of it within the stuffing. Or I drop scented oils or perfume on the filling, but have no clue how long this method lasts.

From my experimenting, scented oils don't last too much longer then a month.

Scented beads might work, I think. You could fill a netting bag or pouch with them and place it in the stomach of the plush. They can be brought on ebay.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A couple of dolls on: June 25, 2011 06:16:10 AM
I felt like showing a couple more of the dolls I make.





Bastet (who calls her self Bas for short and is only called Bastet when she's in trouble) is the dark skinned, dark haired little cat-girl. She has some skill at picking pockets, she tells me, but wants to grow up to be a famous swordswoman and hero like her uncle is.



Flame is my red-haired, blue-eyed desert princess. She's mute, I'm told, but likes horses and cats and dreams of one day being a proud, respected queen like her mother - if she can ever stop making mistakes and getting into trouble for her wild ways.

Bas was my first cloth doll and Flame is number eight, made only last week. I like seeing the two of them together because it shows me how much I've improved over the last year.

Both dolls are made of craft velour (cocoa coloured for Bas and honey for Flame) and are adapted from a pattern by Judi Ward. Bas has jointed arms, while Flame has jointed arms and a jointed neck that's my own design.

Both dolls are completely hand sewn and have wool roving for hair. Bas' hair however is sewn onto her head while Flame's hair and eyebrows are my second attempt at needle felting. Flame also has real eyelashes. Both dolls have hand painted faces, sealed with clear nail polish to make them water proof.

I hope you all like Bas and Flame as much as I do. Feedback and discussion are hugely welcomed.

Craft Velour is wonderful for dolls and I suspect would make for a nice plushie too.

Oh wow. He's amazing. Let him know that if he wants a change of scene, there's plenty of corners to lurk in at my place.

I recomend checking out Judi Ward's BIA doll pattern. One of those dolls is your semi basic rag doll but does have a rounded head and a slight belly and bottom.

Fabric eyes! If you use him as a pillow, hard store brought eyes will quickly become a pain. *speaks from the experience of owning a plushie/pillow with glass eyes as a child*

This gives instructions for a very easy and pretty shirt that can also be adapted to make a dress or skirt. http://dorriebelle.tripod.com/id30.html I love it.

I used the above link to sew the little girl's white shirt.
