This is something I made a couple of years ago, but haven't ever shown to anyone outside of my family and a couple of coworkers.

He is completely hand sewn.  Yes, he is completely jointed, so he can move his arm, legs and head.  That is a standard spool of thread, and the squares underneath are 1 inch.



He can sit.


He can make speeches.



He likes to draw too!



Oops!



I wasn't sure whether to call this the "obligatory cat picture", or just "the explanation of that last picture"



He is made from upholstery fabric.  Each piece is cut out, sewn and turned right side out.  His eyes are seed beads.  His bow is silk ribbon.

Very impressive.  I guess he would have to be hand-stitched as he is so small.  You have given him a very sweet face too.

Hurray!  Someone responded to a post of mine!

Thanks mousenet and elderflower!

The joints were a little strange, but really simple.  It involves jewelery headpins, a hole punch and a coffee can lid!  They work pretty well too.

Yes, I don't think I could have stitched him any other way.  Turning the pieces right-side out was a pain in the @#$$%# too!
