I also decided to stuff her with llama fiber. Poly-fil is great, you can needle felt into it but it's squishy. Fine wood shavings are great (excelsior) but it's hard. I wanted something that would give an old fashioned feel, be easily needle felted and have a wonderful musty smell. Sheep wool or llama is perfect for this. I had a large amount of llama, in fact just enough!
I was able to machine sew everything but I always hand sew the foot pads.
Here's the llama fiber, I got it from my friend Londa at http://www.etsy.com/shop/4hornsheep we're Trade-A-Holics buddies!
