He is actually made from a fashion fabric I got at Joanne's Fabrics. I think it is the 'mole skin' one. I like it because it doesn't fray. Ahhh synthetics, the miracle of science. They come in browns white & black.

He's very cute... I would have bought him.  Awesome job.  Did you sew him by hand?  I don't think I'd be able to do that.

I sew most of the parts on my trusty sewing machine. Then after turning the parts inside out and stuffing them I hand sew them closed with a hidden stitch. On Mr. Bones his arms, and legs are attached with the button jointing method so they can move. I hand sewed his head and neck onto his torso.

After writing that all out it seems like sooo much work, but times flies when you are having fun!

I'm shocked he didn't sell on ebay!  What keywords were you using?  Perhaps if you market it more towards the goth crowd...you may get some good bids?

If I actually had the room in this shoebox of an apartment to collect dolls...I'd be sorely tempted to say GIMME!

Very good job. This is the first time I see a bendable stuffed doll, I guess it's innovative!

   How much were you hoping to get for him? (What would you sell him for?)

On Ebay I had a starting bid of $45, and a buy now for $50. I actually sold him for $50 to a guy I work with.

I think it is a fair price, and realize that maybe I didn't list him very well. Like
puccimaiko suggested I should have listed him for the goth crowd. I listed him in the dolls and bears sections under Artist Offerings. Oh well. I will try the Ebay thing again someday. (Right now I am freaking out because I have to move!)
