Here's a stuffie I made for a friend:


It's supposed to be Hedwig, of Harry Potter fame, with her wee money pouch and all Smiley

I made the beak and eyes from Fimo, and then covered them in glaze.

ps:  Has anyone ever found a black or other coloured stuffing for these guys? I was thinking of making animals that are other colours than white!

Totally adorable!!  Great job.

About the stuffing--I've never seen any other color than white, but a trick you can use is to put the stuffing inside the leg or foot of a nylon and tie it off.  Cheap nylons can be found in lots of different colors, and then not only is it the color of your yarn, but the stuffing won't poke out the holes.

Great job!


About the colored stuffing: I've never seen colored stuffing, but that doesn't mean that they don't have it. If you can't find it, crocheting more tightly will make it where you can't see the stuffing through the stitches. Just an idea. ^_^

Also, I know this is a bit unrelated, but your necklace is BEAUTIFUL!!

I kinda know of colored stuffing...
Atleast there's this kind of cotton-y stuff that' you can put in your hamsters cage, this comes in colors such as yellow green and red. (I've worked at a petshop, this is in Norway, but it was a foreign brand)
