    I messed up the teeth a little bit but it was pretty tough (given it was my first attempt with a sewing machine).

    Anyway, GREAT tutorial, it was very instructive and I'm really happy with the result, so thanks !

    ur couch is awesome X3 and awesomeness I made this but I totally forgot about the zipper and sadly used it on somthing else XD he he but besides the fact I had to sew the top it turned out okay XD he he nice idea x3

    bravo! your ideas are so cool!

    Cutest thing ever! I love your couch btw, haha.

    Nice pillow tutorial, but I AM MADLY IN LOVE WITH YOUR COUCH. Did you DIY that, or buy it? Because it's friggin' awesome.

     domo has 4 teeth

    Very nice. I prefer your normal instructables but the video does make it easy to view quickly! Very simple to follow and nice out come. Well done, another great Instructable!

    ps. I bought a domo-kun shirt just the other day, maybe it's fate? I'll have to make one then!

    I reckon. Maybe you could add in a little mention about your latest video when you say "Now take all the pins out, put them safely away..."

    thanks! it was fun to make, im working on another one for this monday, but simpler and shorter this time :)

    I saw a domo kun gangsta hat. I laughed, and then pined because I have a large head and couldn't buy it. 

     Lovely!  The teeth looked a tad tedious though.  Have you thought about fabric glue?  Also, they have self adhesive felt sheets (about 4 times as expensive), but they eliminate complex sewing of small parts.

    It takes a bit of time but i think its worth it because it looks better, i also find that gluing layers together either makes the details crunchy/stiff, and bonding agents (the iron-on glue i find works best) is quick but the results aren't as hardwearing as sewing them on :)
