I made this for the FOC raffle at the start of the year.  He's made from two fulled sweaters.  I designed him myself.

How sweet!  Is he handsewn?

I have a stack of felted sweaters I want to start using up -- these is a great jumping off point.

Thanks!

Thank you!  He's actually machine stitched together.  I originally intended to then turn him inside out and stuff him, but that didn't look right, so I did a running stitch to cover the machine stitches.  The ears are hand-stiched with blanket stitch and the heart on his bum is done in backstitch.

I would love to offer constructive criticism but all I can think to say is "Awww, how sweet!". He is gorgeous Smiley

Is he double sided?
