I filled the arms and legs about 1/3 of the way with the glass bead sand, then used an ink pen to poke stuffing in the holes and since I forgot to get end plugs and I was afraid of the sand leaking, I cut circles from a water/ milk jug and glued them to the ends with e6000.
thanks everyone! Glad you liked her (I just keep thinking her instead of him). I was going to sell this one but after putting her together, it is getting harder to part with her so maybe I will keep one of the calebs. Having fun thinking of accessories that I could make for her.
Which reminds me - is it worthwhile to make a few things to go with a baby that you are going to sell or do you usually just go with the minimum to send out? Would people rather buy a doll mostly bare and get what they wanted or would they prefer to have one-stop shopping? And which makes your listing stand out from the others - low price with no accessories or higher price with custom accessories?
