Wow, that's reall creative! How did you form the mouth?

It takes some steps but it is easy, I hope I explain it right. First I dediced in which round I wanted to start the mouth and on that round I crocheted a chain. That chain will be the depth of the mouth. I tried to make a box, with 5 sides. Sides 1, 2 and 3 were formed by the chain (and the next single crochet rounds).

On the next round I started (and kept going) with sc st. (for 14 or 15 rounds). On round 16 let's say, I crocheted a chain again skipping some stitches (see last photo of this proyect) and on round 17 all single crochet again. This way you will have a strip or band that you can put inside of the body.

Now for the 3rd step you have to work on that strip. I'm gonna give an example cause I can't remember (don't have the written pattern) how many stitches has in total. Lets say you have 18 stitches (wide), you have to start crocheting on the middle (6 stitches) , 1 chain, turn, 6 sc st, 1 chain, turn. for in this case 14 rounds. Cut the yarn and do the same on the opposite side. the final result is like a cross. Then sew the sides to form a box. I'm gonna try to upload some more photos so you can understand (unfortunately can upload only 6). Let me know if you have more questions :)

ok, I uploaded a photo with some of the steps. I'm not too familiar with the photo editor on this computer so I'm sorry for that. I hope you are not too confused!

Thanks so much! That's really amazing that you could design something like that. I think I understand the instructions you gave. I'll have to give it a try.
