The only other thing I can think of is, maybe some little pieces of cardboard on the inside to give it some shape?
Great minds think alike! I tried that too... and it did hold the shape of the smile better.
I'm just obsessed with the version I posted and I'm dying to know how she did it. The edge is so subtle I'm not sure if it's a bind-off/cast-on or just a pocket with cardboards inside. I stared at it for weeks and couldn't figure it out lol!
Here's a close shot. What do you think? Sometimes I swear there's an edge but sometimes I'm not so sure.
