After sewing the first one, I was good to go. I found the pattern easy to follow. Working on something so small was a bit challenging. I also found that ***** fur is much to slick to control under the sewing machine foot, way to slippery. I would suggest a fabric/fur that is easier to work with. Overall, great little pattern.
My puppy turned out beautifully, I made it in fleece. I thought it was going to be a bit tricky but after reading the pattern through a couple of times, everything became clear. The directions were well written. Also made the dog bed, very cute.
Loved this pattern. The puppy was a little tricky, but I ended up making 5. The dog bed was equally cute and easy.
This is a cute pattern! I used brown fleece. I used 6 strands of DMC floss for nose, but it was tough getting the needle through. Perhaps I should try the nose pattern. Also, I think it would be easier to apply nose before stuffing. I'm thinking that I'll try to have the opening underneath, so no hand stitches would be visible. I have 3 more ready to stuff! So fun!
