 Shocked  OMG!!!!  I told my husband when this game came out that I wanted this little guy!!!  He nonchalantly said "Then crochet one".  I've been too preoccupied with my other projects to start one as I knew I'd have to start from scratch and make him up as I went.  But - - - THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU!   Kiss  You've made my day!  I'm now confident I can do this as I've seen the project come to life!   Cheesy

how exactly did you do the mouth?  I read that you used a c.d., but how did you make it pop open? (if that makes any sense)

It makes perfect sense! In order to have the mouth fit, you obviously need to skip a bunch of stitches in the crochet work to leave room to sew in the mouth piece. You need to make sure you have a place to put it!

Anywho, I broke a CD in half and then laid it on a piece of the black canvas. I made sure that there was at least half an inch of fabric showing around the CD. This fabric was used to sew the mouth piece to the head. The CD pieces were placed so that the broken sides are almost touching, so it almost looked like the CD was whole. I left a little less than 1/16in in between the pieces going all the way across. I then taped both pieces to the canvas so they wouldn't move. After that I laid another piece of fabric (the same size) on top of the CD pieces. I then sewed around the inside of the little circle. Once that was done I outlined the round edges of the CD so that I could easily see where the CD was. That made it much easier when I stitched all around the CD. I removed the tape as I got to it during the sewing.

Once the stitching was done, you could see the outline of the CD and the hole in the middle. I then stitched across the CD through the space I had left between the pieces. Because the CD was sewn in between the fabric while laying flat, there is some resistance when it's folded in half. That's what keeps the mouth open. I then sewed the mouth to the inside of the head. 

**I guess it would be the time to say that I crocheted the head from the bottom of the neck up. I inserted the mouth piece once I crocheted a few rows above the mouth space.

The crocheted head keeps the mouth from opening too far.

That maybe more than you were looking for! Sorry if it was. I wanted to be as thorough as possible. Let me know if I left you with more questions! Cheesy
