Meet Harry! the hammerhead shark doll I recently made. Guess why I’m so excited about him? He has a pocket mouth.

As with most other dolls and plushies I create, Harry was made from all recycled fabric.

The front of his body is made from white tee shirt; the back—recycled denim from old jeans.

He wears either a pair of legging pants or an apron, also from reclaimed denim. I’m using so much denim because I seam-ripped a few pairs of jeans quickly.

And here, a strange pose with the arm, but you can see the pink lining of the mouth clearly.

He believes he can fly. A pocket mouth and a pocket apron!

Plushie Pocket Mouth

This is my second attempt at making an opened mouth for my doll. I chose hammerhead shark because I think it is most appropriate for a predator class animal. And why not a normal shark? Because Hammerhead is just really cute.

Because Hammerhead is just really cute. And, I get to play with needle sculpting the nostril (later) for the first time.

The pink lining of the mouth bulges when I pressed the area what we human call the chin.

The pocket mouth, as you can see from the photo, is quite roomy. I can imagine making fishes just to fill up the mouth. Or I can always take the spare leg from Simon the cat but that’s another kind of fun…

His eyes are made intentionally uneven like he doesn’t quite know where to look.

I have been told that my dolls always look expressively weird? I think they might just be expressing different crystallised moments of my emotions.

Harry’s doll-eyes are made from hand embroidery, using three different colour threads, in 1 to 3 plies.

The 2 dimples on top of the head between the eyes are actually nostrils.

This is my first attempt at needle-sculpting. There is much more to learn. For now, Harry can breathe above water.

And that’s all for now.

Say bye to Harry!
