I am making some progress on the mayor and now have some body parts to stuff tonight while I watch TV. I have sewn his body, his head, his arms, and the tall part of his hat. Once I have them stuffed I will sew his arms to his body and then make his jacket and white collar for his shirt. I think making the clothing will be a lot easier than making his head was.
He has two different faces on his head so I have to attach his head so that it can rotate around to show the other face. I am thinking of using a snap for that. I hope that works because I do not have another idea.
Making the tall part of his hat was really difficult because it is so skinny. I tried to make it in cotton, but I could not turn it. I did not have any knit black fabric so I used a pair of sweat pants that had gotten too short after they were washed. I hate when that happens, but at least I found another use for the fabric.
