So a solution was reached - we make a Furby stuffies! I based the pattern on the electronic Furby toy, draping fake fur directly on the toy then drawing seamlines. I traced the ears, feet, faceplate, eyes and beak then had them cut out come of the pieces. I sewed bits of felt on in layers to create the face, stuffing the beak with a bit of fiberfill. Once the face was made I sewed the body together and stuffed it with more fiberfill. While it's the 1.0 version and there is one thing my very particular customers are asking I change (the eyes) I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
