I’m creating a stuffed animal for my nephew. I’m modeling it off of a doll from a video game. The doll has ropes for arms and legs, and I’m not sure how to attach the arms and legs to the fabric. The images I’ve seen online of dolls that others have made are knitted, rather than being solid fabric with ropes attached. The best idea I’ve come up with is cutting a small hole in the fabric and threading the rope through, and anchoring it on the inside somehow.
Here are some images for reference:

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
