Because i had sewing lessons at scool, i just know that's way not that easy as it looks.
Number four is a good advice. Do you have a unfinished plushie just for looking how the eyes are on the body or do you use just every unfinished body that's in reach? And are those eyes already embroyed? They look so.

yes I have an unfinished plushie just for tests... because the eyes are embroidered directly onto the fabric in every of my finish plushs.. in number 5 is how they look in the fabric ^^

This is looks easy , but i'm really bad at making the hair pattern , especially if the hair was tall with a lot of layers , so what is the easy way to make the hair pattern ?
i did the same that you did but its always end messy and awful ><

That stone wave microwave cooker is actually pretty awesome with that. ^^

Most definitely! :nod: Though If you're like me, (or most anyone else), you'll always be fine tuning things. :iconrarityawkwardplz:

Microwave cooker you say? I'll have to look into that :p 

Yeah, Fine Tuning... 
I don't like him. Always taking up a lot of my time without asking for permission. Kind of a jerk, that Fine Tuning guy.

ps: Your pattern is awesome! I can tell you've been hanging out with Fine Tuning a lot.  ;p
