Finishing Using mattress stitch, sew Harvey’s feet and legs. Stuff the feet well but not tightly – if any filling pokes through the heel of his foot, gently darn over the holes with scraps of Entice and they will then be invisible. Keep sewing the legs, stuffing very lightly as you go. His legs should be filled but still floppy. At the top of the legs, sew a few sts to enclose the hole where the legs meet the body at the back seam. At this point the legs might want to turn to the other side, just keep twisting them gently back in the direction you want them to sit and the stuffing should hold them in place.
Sew up the body, stuffing as you go, being careful not to put too much stuffing into the neck. Again, if stuffing is showing through gently darn over any stretched sts with scraps of Entice. Harvey’s eyes are made from dolls eyes which usually have a clear backing. Add colour by cutting a scrap of felt the same shape as the backing, cut a small cross in the centre of the felt, and push the dolls eye barrel through this hole. Trim any excess felt. Push the barrel of the eye through the head and fix in place with the plastic backing piece. Keep sewing up the back of the head, pushing stuffing into Harvey’s nose, and forming the shape of his head as you go. Sew up the arms, starting from the bottom of the hands and stuff the hand once sewn. Leave the arms unstuffed as they should stay floppy. Attach the arms to the sides of the body from the shoulders. Attach the pointy end of the ears to the side of the head. Using scrap yarn, make a pom pom for Harvey’s tail and attach securely. Using scrap pink yarn, embroider his nose and mouth. Sew in all ends. If desired, tie ribbon around his neck. Don’t forget to give him a cuddle – it’s his first day in the world after all.
