So I made a Homer Simpson plushie, and his tummy is flat. I've tried stuffing him with  more stuffing than the rest of his body, but he still doesn't look right. His middle area starts to look oblong instead of round after a while.
I've tried tutorials,and looking at other plushies but the plushie tutorials are only for like, bears or skinnier plushie characters. I guess it would be called a 3d stomach(?) but I can't find anything that has helped me. Would anyone here happen to have advice?

To make a round shape, think about an umbrella - they have "sections" with one pointed end and one fat end. To make a completely round shape, you need two pointed ends and a fat middle.

Maybe if you added half of a ball pattern to a circular hole in the front half? Know what I mean? It may take some tweaking to get it to look like a chubby stomach and not a pregnant stomach.  Wink

Maybe try looking up patterns for Santa dolls? I saw a pattern a while ago for one and it had a very bell shaped torso, and you folded the bottom into a dart to make a "gut". I'll see if I can find a link.
