Whooves in progress by Voodoo-Tiki Whooves in progress by Voodoo-Tiki
Dr. Whooves in progress (I just happened to have fabric that matched the character).

I made this guy partly to test my pattern for a male face, and partly because I wanted to take advantage of the interesting properties of cuddle fleece to do something a little different. He doesn’t have double-ended darts under the legs like the usual pattern; they’re used to draw the legs under the body. As you can see, he can stand firmly because I’ve weighted the legs with beads, but where the limbs join the body he’s understuffed so he’s actually floppy and poseable, not stiff. Cuddle fleece is perfect for this - it’s much more flexible than faux fur, but the dense pile hides unattractive wrinkles that would be very visible in a plush made from minky, velboa, velour, or regular fleece. The combination of heavy hooves and a body stuffed with squishy high loft fiberfill gives him a very appealing feeling when he’s held, and that’s what I was going for, a plushie that was designed to be cuddled, not just put on a shelf and looked at like a vinyl figure.
