We got Diddly’s “Body” made. Now, threading blunt needle with first tail you left, begin to sew the sides closed even as you stuff along, fasten off and weave end at the end of each color. Continue this way until you have a tube. Do not cut off your yarn just yet, sew together both ends until you have a closed circle. Now, twist your closed circle to form the figure of an 8. Insert the blunt needle into the crocheted fabric, and pass it underneath the fabric while you hold together the shape of your 8 with the opposite hand, make small stitches around that area to secure the shape, so that it won’t fall apart. If you have to,  insert the needle deep into the stuffing and bring it up on the opposite side and then, with tiny stitches, join the pieces together, work for heavy use. Fasten off, weave in ends.

Now comes the real fun! Let’s give a personality to our little Oodle!

Let’s put our little baby together. First, stuff Legs and sew them in place as seen in photos. Fasten off and weave in tails. Now, do the same with the Arms. Fasten off and weave in ends. Now sew Nose to center of Muzzle. Fasten off and weave in tails inside Muzzle. With Baby Pink, embroider Mouth as seen in photos, fasten off and weave in ends. Center the Cauliflower semi-circle that will form our little rascal’s “wrinkles” and pin it in place. Sew all around, as you sew, make sure the “wrinkles concentrate in the middle, leaving the sides flat so that you can place the Eyes there. Don’t worry about how it looks, it will make sense later. When you reach the first “wrinkle” do the following: Stuff ever so slightly, then, with the thumb and index finger of your opposite hand, “pinch” into form while you sew the edge of the stitches in place. Sew the next few stitches flat (in between the two “wrinkles”) and then stuff and “pinch” the next wrinkle into shape. Finish the rest by sewing it flat. Fasten off, weave in tail.
Stuff the Muzzle and sew into place above the bottom of our cauliflower semi-cirle. Fasten off, weave in tails. Sew Eyes in place. With Wite, Make one dot of light in each Eyes. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Stuff Body well, leaving no empty pockets. Sew top closed. Attach Ears to sides of Head and weave in tails.
Done!
