With the right sides together, begin to sew about an inch down from the top of Wacky's head. Plain straight stitches are fine for this. I did my seam about a quarter-inch from the edge, but if you feel more comfortable with more or less space, go for it. (:
Keep sewing around Wacky until you end an inch from his head on the other side. (So if wacky was a banana he'd be sewn on all sides except an inch from the stem.) Tie a knot, and cut your thread.
Now turn Wacky inside out. He's starting to look like a zingoz, doesn't he?
The arms and legs are exactly the same to sew, so refer to this info for sewing both.
With the right sides together, begin sewing on one side of Wacky's arm. Whichever side you choose, leave the flat part (that would attach to Wacky's body) open. Sew around the hand/foot, and up to the other side. Tie a knot and cut your thread.
To stuff the arms and legs, just take a bit of stuffing, and, well.....Stuff them! It's your choice how firm or soft you want his arms and legs, so experiment. (: Put his limbs aside.
For Wacky's body, we're going to put some beans in him so he'll be a beanbag through the hole you left in his head. This is easier with a funnel. Take your beans, and pour them into Wacky until he's filled about halfway. Then fill the rest of him with stuffing. Again, how soft and firm you want him is your choice, but I find beanbags are best if they're not packed so the beans can move around. I just filled mine loosely up to the top.
Wacky's head is open! O_o We're going to fix this. (:
Start sewing where you left off sewing his body. I just used whip stitch so it's harder to see my stitches.
As you get closer to the top of his head, stop when you reach the flat part. (where his stem would be if he was a banana) Take his hair and sandwich the bottom of it between the two sides of his body. Using straight stitches, (not whip stitch) continue sewing through all three layers so the hair gets sewn into him. (:
Once the hair is totally sewn on, continue whip stitching until the gap is closed. Tie a small knot and cut your thread as closely as possible.
This is probably the hardest part to sew, and it only gets better with practice.
To sew on the arms, position them on Wacky's body, and start sewing. I used whip stitch to sort of sew 'around' his arms and legs. You might have an easier way to do this, and it might just be a matter of fooling around with it for a while. (:
