The problems started early and a fair amount of cussing and stabbing with pins transpired as we assembled these little guys. I was a little behind at the start since almost everyone else had cut out their pieces before coming over but I caught up pretty quick when there were more than a few stumped faces on a couple of the steps. Now, if you've done stuffed animals before you won't have much of a problem, however if this is your first go around I would choose a more simple pattern. Unless of course you want to experience what we did with all the cussing and pin stabbing.
Crafters were dropping like flies. Katy had been awake since 3:30 that morning, Laura's frustration had manifested in multiple uses of the seem ripper and I'm not sure when we lost Sarah but she joined the other two in temporary defeat. Kelly and I had chosen to do the original size of the pattern as a pin cushion and we were determined to not be beaten by this pint sized pachyderm.
Lesson? Just because something is hard doesn't mean it won't be worth the process in the end.
The dogs were both in agreement and volunteered for a little photo op of the finished products.
