  1. You are truely remarkable. You have a pile of sewing to do and choose to make a dog for a panto. True to form you’ve put your heart and sewl (sic) into it. Toto looks amazing. People in the show will be over the rainbow. Congratulations. I’m not a soft toy person, but love it, love it, love it. I hope your hands recover soon.

  2. I think he looks excellent Fairy. The cat is right, and he will be perfect for the production. Just imagine the comparison with papier mache.
    Hope your hands recover quickly.

  3. He looks fantastic and great for the production. Fur sewing is interesting. I made a soft toy tiger that sort of works last year, no patterns, inventing the pattern design from the fur squares in the local handicraft shop. It’s very squidgy, but it’s a cuddly sort toy

  4. Why yes, I have made a few teddy bears. With splints in the joints, not nuts and bolts. If I were to use that I’d add some locktite to the nut just to be sure it won’t loosen over time. A trick to make the sewing easier is to trim away the fur in the seam allowance before sewing. I use a wooden spoon to push the filling in place, as it has a nice “handle” to hold so you don’t strain your hand as much. But well done you!

    1. lol I’ve been sewing for so long now it’s getting harder to find interesting challenges- which is why I love costume and bridal stuff so much! With age comes deterioration unfortunately, and I am pretty ancient now
