That's what my mother said as I was making mine! But I kinda liked hand stitching his face.  ^_^

Yeah... me too. I think it's the best part! Can't wait to see your pictures!

Hi all!

it's so nice to hear from so many of you trying your hands on stuffed critters! Glad to be of inspiration!
For those of you that are unsure of their embroidering techniques.. it would definitely be easier to sew the face and everything on first, then sew the body parts with the machine. You could risk the face being a little of center, but it may be worth it anyway.

- Shirley Ujest : yeah I know the ugly dolls! Wonder if I could sell mine for that amount of money.. without all the marketing hype... Wink

Good job everyone, please keep sending pictures, I'd love to see them!!
I have myself a new batch in progress, I'll show you when I'm done!

I was wondering if there's any particular reason you don't put the face on first- say after you've drawn the template, allowing you more maneuvering, rather than restricting it to the opening once you've sewn?

Hi!
The first reason is... I'm not too good at the sewing machine (I'm getting much better with practice, but still...). When I started doing these creatures I figured out that if I was going to mess it up, it would probably happen while machine sewing. So if I do that first, then I don't have to worry about it anymore. And if I DO mess it up, I haven't lost too much work on it! Smiley

The second reason is.. I  always get something slightly wrong anyway (not following the line too well..), I think that if I did the face first it would very much risk to be off center.. and I'm still able to embroider wherever I want on the body even coming in through the opening.. with a little practice..

And the third reason is.. it's just more fun for me to add the face later on! Wink

Great job! And thanks for sharing with a very nice tutorial. I really like your designs, the combination of simple black lines and spots of color!

Thanks to all for all the kind words!
And for the links to all those other creatures around the web.. I found so many!

I have to admit I was afraid to see other creatures and in my mind they would all be so much totally better than mine in every way that I would get depressed and not make mine anymore. Instead, and this was the great surprise, I loved each site I visited, and I had so much fun! And not in spite of the fact that they were better than mine (and they totally were) but just because of that!! And the creatures were all different, with a different style, attitude, materials.. This exploration spurred so much inspiration, colors, and ideas in my mind last night that I almost could not sleep.

Ok.. gotta go draw that new template that has been in my mind all day or it won't let me do work stuff ! Smiley

Thanks everyone, again!
