Hand vs Machine for Larger Plushie

I know that it's a lot easier to hand sew than machine sew for smaller plushies, but when it comes to larger plushies (in this case Usa-chan from Ouran High School Host Club), would it be easier to machine sew?

Machine sewing (assuming you know how to do that) ='s love and time saving

It's a judgment call. People have different tolerances for the unique irritations of each method. In general, for sections with long, fairly straight seams machine sewing is the way to go. Small oddly shaped pieces, lots of curves, tight angles you're probably better off hand sewing. In such cases a curved needle (like for upholstery) can be helpful. For a large plushie, you may want to use both machine and hand sewing on different parts.

For big plushies, I say machine. For small, hand sew. I accidently made the mistake of machine sewing a small plushie. It went quick, but the arms were sewed to close together and I couldn't get it turned rightside out so that I could stuff him.
