You can also joint them from the outside using regular buttons. I've done it for my prim dolls. Look up button jointing on google and you'll find several nice tutes.

I so want to make one of these, but I get so little time to sit at the sewing machine. Has anyone made one of these by hand sewing (which I could do at work at quiet times) and do you think it'd hold up well enough to stuffing? I love everyones stuff, the patterns for clothing are awesome.
It's totally possible to make them by hand, just make your stitches nice and small and I recommend sewing all your seems twice. There have been a few people who've made them by hand and they work out just fine. Smiley Many more hours of sewing but I totally get you with the time issue.
good luck!

Well, craftewoman has posted a tutorial about how she hads sculpted her dolls before and I found this awesome site a couple of months ago that you can take a look at, it has more than just sculpting though so take a look around the site!

This site makes pretty good sense with the button jointing, and it even has pictures!!

Yep that's how I learned. Also don't skip the part where she tells you to squeeze and tug the the thread. I skipped the first few times I made poppets and they all need re-jointed. So Follow the directions exactly and you should be fine!
