How long does it take to make a plushie doll and/or a beanie baby doll by hand?
My character has all the time, money, and materials he needed, but I wonder how long does it take by using hands in average? I imagined it only takes 1-3 days for 1-3 dolls.
But for realism and accuracy sakes, what say you? My character is making little dragon dolls, if you're wondering and he's an amateur, so he uses his own imagination. He knows how to sew by hand though, but not the sewing machine.
ETA: I really appreciate your feedback on such a short notice everyone! Thanks for sharing your own experiences of doll-making with me, I'll be sure to base my character's doll-making experience on what you all had told me. :D
Yes, I forgotten to be specific about the 3 little dragon dolls he'll make. They're small and about 4-6 inches in length, slightly than his own hands. In my story, I tried to calculate how much time he could make 3 dolls just in time for Christmas and he only has 10 days. However, he has an advantage of time and money to make it before the date is due since he's really an old man long retired from work.
