I made a little stuffie for a little boy. Grin I made a cloth body, each hair is stitched on separately, face is painted, the lei and jewellery are embroidered, the dhoti and sash are hand stitched, and I embroidered all around the border in an insanely time consuming stitch...dumb idea. Tongue

I used a pattern out of a book I got at Vinnie's for a buck...um...lemme look which one..shoot, can't find it. If anyone actually cares, I can hunt it up. It was some vintage one, though.

All this cause I got a yen to try out embroidering on a stuffie body. Tongue

Wicked embroidery skills on a 3D object and great idea!  How did you like embroidering on the sculpted doll?

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

I really liked it, actually! It was easy to keep the thread tails hidden, and I loved shaping the stitching around the body. Smiley

The hair is awesome!
You did such a wonderful job.
Your embroidery is gorgeous too. Love the chain stitch for the necklace, bracelets and anklets!! I know how hard sewing with metallic gold thread can be Wink.
