What are you most proud of? I forgot to take a photo but I embroidered her name (Zoe) on the base using the O formed by the closed up cast-on edge. This personalization really made it special for her and for me. I am going to try to incorporate something like this in all of my toys in the future.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As always I would say to close up the body and the back of the head (the cast-on edges) last or as close to the end as you can that way you can add stuffing easily as it settles and squishes down a bit from its original stuffing. I always find that I stuff it good and full at first then after squeezing it and playing with it a bit to add the arms and legs, the body needs just a bit more stuffing.

Thanks Sheila! The sunglasses are actually a "sticker" from the photo app I used to combine them but I couldn't help myself, they were too cute!
