The Critter So Far

See, it's not Gumby. Gumby doesn't have a tail.

Kmkat was right, I am avoiding seams as much as possible. I did have to sew the tail on, though. Mind you, it's not that I couldn't think of a way to do that seamlessly ("afterthought" tail, anyone?) It's just that at some point, sewing a very small seam felt less awkward that fiddling around with seamless purity. There are also very small seams at the underarms. I could have grafted, but in slippery eyelash? Not me.

This is a slightly lumpy, slightly asymmetrical critter. But it's reasonably soft and squishy, and the arms, legs and tail all offer good places for little hands to grip. Once I get those slightly sinister looking needles out of it's head, and if I can embroider a face that doesn't look totally crazed, it might not be such a bad toy.
