Step 8: Time to Close It Up...

We are now ready to stuff the Domo.

Turn everything inside out.

Stuff the tail with fiberfill.

Wrap some fiberfill around the arms. Place some padding on the back.

Like putting on a T-shirt, raise the arms pointed up and guide into the armholes.

Work the rest of the foam body form into its shell.

Wrap some fiberfill around the legs. Adjust fill or padding around any of the other parts of the Domo.

With hand sewing, it is easier to connect the crotch point first to gather the front and back fabric at a central point. Folding the raw edges together, stitch and sew to close up the rest of the inseam to the footpad.

You may also want to put a stitch in to tie the tail closer to its bottom if it sticks out too much.

Final details are to adjust the placement of the LEDs.

For the eyes, I marked around the LEDs with a magic marker and went around it with a ring of hot glue. This serves to reinforce the fabric when I make a hole for the LED to peep out.

Fluff up the dorsal tips on the tail and separate the two sets.

Oops, I didn't think about needing to change the batteries. A flap with velcro or zipper would allow access to the battery compartment. Oh well, these are LEDs so it should last long enough before they need to be changed.

Hola! Now go out and have a Keith-Ki-Domo day!
Nice! I wish I could sew that well.......
If you can blindly push a needle with a string attached going through several layers of fabric and know where to place your thumb on the other side without getting poked, that is sewing well.
ohkayyyyy I'll try it.... but if I end up make a domo-arm, I'm blaming you!
me too. ive already gotten injuries from sewing. *holds up shoe-arm*
I'm permanently wearing these pants.....
We need a GorillazMiko one. :o
Dude, we all thought you retired the bucket. I think they even rented out your room.
I got the room back. (They wanted double the price!)
Man, things happen when you are gone. Seems like someone kicked the fun out of this place.
Once there is a GorillazMiko plushie created, the fun will be back. Or an Instructable dedicated to GorillazMiko.
It seems as if someone has found the love of sewing (referring to the past few instructables of yours). Congratulations. Your life is one step closer to being complete!
I've been able to use a sewing machine since I was a kid. Mom worked as a sweatshop seamstress and if I ripped my clothes, I could fix it myself. If I had a MIG welder, or any welder, that would be nice.
yah, except if you accidentallly put your thumb on the back of metal while mig welding, you will get much worse than a poke ;)
You could also take an eye out if you stare at it without a mask.
I. Am. Honored. Although its about time.....Thank you. As with the ro-domo-kun, well done.
OK, now go out and play in the street or sumthin.
Sumthing I shall!
