Haven't posted a while cause some of the staff doesn't like me...but, oh well.

I came across a drawing of a Garrett plushie. Now Garrett is a master thief from the Thief video game series. I had to make myself one cuse I love the game. I only had made 2 rag dolls and wanted to make another one, just more with a limp feel to him.

What I did was to take a folded piece of clothe and cut out the frame in one piece. Basically, lacking a pic, the pattern is fairly simple. Just make the arms and legs in a wide triangle formation.

Keep the neck fairly short/non existant. Sew along the edges, of course, and sew along the "I---CUT---I" to give it some legs. Leave an opening and pull the material inside out; start filling in with stuffing. I stuffed mine with fabric scraps so the rag doll has some weight to it; I find cotton stuffing to be too light weight.
To close the open seam, I used a type of stitch, not sure what it's called, by which I stitched along the inside fold of the seam so when it's taunt, the stitch dissappears.
For the hair, I like yarn but it's hard to sew it. I basically lined up the pieces of yarn and sewn thru the yarn onto the head.
After I sewn the clothes, this is what I got

I also made the blue pearl camero necklace in this pic. I attached each pearl by putting a piece of wire (can get those at a craft store, where the earrings are) and, using pliers, created loops at each end of the wire for the next pearl to attach to. Enjoy!!!
