I just love the weird little pictures we doodle in school. I'm glad you found an application to bring him into the dimensional world. He's really got good design in my opinion, despite starting out as a distraction from school!

Yayy for male craftsters!  Super cute little whaley guy-does he have any other friends?

Anyway a super secret stuffing tip (don't remember where I got this one, maybe a doll book?) is to actually add the stuffing BEFORE flipping right side out....

Tack a little nob of stuffing to the thumb, tips of toes, etc. on the wrong side of the fabric, and when you turn it right side out-it'll be perfectly stuck in place!  You can also sew it into the seam in the same manner, if it's not too thick. I often times do that with quilting-where I actually sew the batting in with the backing and the quilt top-then flip them all at once.  It works great!

Chopsticks are also a good cheap tool-either wax it with a candle or lightly sand it so any little bamboo bits don't catch on your fabric.

On the doll torso I made for the Exquisite Corpse swap ( you can see photos in the swap gallery, also at www.eoinadesigns.com/swap.html) I made the bosoms by rolling fiberfill into little balls and sticking them on top of the other filling, so they wouldn't 'melt' back in, it's a great way to add depth to one area versus another....

won't you brighten a wee cat's day?
