Mr Marshmallow

I really enjoy making felt food and I also like the little faces and characters that you get in the world of plushies, especially the Japanese inspired ones.  So this in my little prototype, Mr Marshmallow!
What do you think?  He is a bit wonky looking but he is hand sewn and has a cute little face.  I was thinking of adding cardboard to his top and bottom to make him more flat but them he won't be totally squishy like he is now. 
You can see the wonky top better here.  Is wonky sewing just a statement of handmade or do you think it needs to be improved?  All comments welcome as I want to improve it and make it better.  I have plans for a whole host of different characters but want to perfect the basic first.
