Add a delightful look to stuffed animals with this tutorial on Needle Sculpting the Face on Plush Toys! The beginner sewing tutorial is easy to follow, too.

From the blogger: "Needle sculpting is hands down one of the most transformative techniques you can use for making plush toys. You can completely change the expression on the face of the toys you are making, or you can use it to transform your pieces into realistic works of art. This video tutorial shows how to create eye indentations on the face of a stuffed elephant, as well as how to embroider the eyes with a colonial knot."

I am loving this needle sculpting to put the faces on stuffed animals it makes them look so much more realistic. There is a video that shows you how to do this and makes it so easy to do. Looks so professional. I would like to try and do a nose too. Does anyone know of a video for that? Thank you for making me aware of how easy this is to do.
