For mouth, nose and also the pink and orange nose of Tigger I used embroidery.  Arms and legs are sewn to the body. The tail and hair of Eeyore is inserted with a crochet hook and then split. The first Pooh Bear had a round head and although he had the colors and everything of Pooh Bear he looked like an ordinary bear: Pooh Bear is not Pooh without this egg-head shape. So I redid the head and now he looks like Pooh. Tigger looks actually a bit sad! More sad than Eeyore. Next time I will try to catch his happy spirit. The most proud I am of Eeyore. He is really adorable.

I used the following materials:

1) 3.00 mm hook
2) 4 ply yarns (cream, yellow, red, light pink, pink, orange, black and blue)  
3) Black embroidery floss
4) Polyester fiberfill
5) Two 4 mm black beads for eyes (for bear)
6) Six 2 mm black beads for eyes (for piggie, tiger and donkey)
7) Tapestry needle
8) Sewing needle and thread for attaching eyes

These dolls are about 3" (7.5 cm) tall

Below are some pictures of making the dolls:

My goodness!  Those are just adoreable!  They would make super cute keychains for little kids to clip onto their bookbags. Smiley

Aw! These are so cute. I'v alway loved Eeyore and yours is too darling. How big are they?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I agree with missmoppet, those would make fantastic key chains!  Well done!

These are just so sweet! You're embroidery on the faces is perfect!
I love that they are so small - that adds to the cuteness, I think Wink

Tigger is so cute!! I have to make sure my mom doesn't see the tigger one or she will try to force me to make her a tigger! Great job on all of them!
