|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? Lion Brand's "Fun Fur" & "Vanna's Choice," plus DMC Perle Cotton (No. 5), and a set of safety eyes and safety nose because this item might be mine! (and not for a child).
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Definitely try this pattern or any other created by this designer. Also note her additional PDFs with assembly instructions. There are a load of tips that will help the most advanced knitter to the beginner. If you're a beginner, be comfortable with your cast-on, cast-off, knit, purl, and basic increase skills. Follow the designer's skill recommendations, too. If you're comfortable with the mattress stitch skill for seaming, give it a go. As Pat suggests, don't overstuff the item, and also, most importantly, as she stresses, enjoy the project! Take your time. Knitting isn't a race. The time you spend will reward you in many ways.
