You've Got to Try One!

"I made this horse from some of my dad’s clothes. I can’t say enough about how much I love this pattern! I think the addition of the eyelashes and the eyelids are brilliant and add so much character! I would never have thought to add those, but they give such a finished look."

"I wanted to share with you my completed project, just in time for my very preemie granddaughter's first birthday today. She spent 14 weeks in the giraffe pod of the NICU which is how the giraffe theme originated.  I appreciated all the photos and the very explicit instructions- I am fairly experienced but I learned some new tricks and it was rewarding to watch my "Lounging Leafer" evolve!  I gathered black lace for the eyelashes just to be very baby-safe and it worked well.  And, I think the blue eyes will match hers- The nail polish hint was great!"

"The instructions are very clear for a beginner, each diagram making it easy to see the process.  The pattern outlines are clear and at 100% so you can start as soon as you print the packet out.  I highly recommend this pattern to beginners like me. Knowing the designer is very approachable helps."
