What was your inspiration?
I was looking for something speical for my 6 year old goddaughter for Christmas. But didn't get her finished her finished in time. Just as well I had a back up plan :)
The pattern is by Missaine (Aine Marriot)
What are you most proud of?
The way she turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
1. If giving this toy to a very young child, make sure that the eyes are embroidered.
2. If putting a wooden skewer inside the drinking straw for the wand like I did, make sure you remove the sharp end of the skewer. Before sewing the ends of the wand handle, add a little bit stuffing into the base
If she is for a very young child, don't put a wooden skewer in the drinking straw.
