What was your inspiration?
I had this fantastic reclaimed yarn from Pirate Cat, and finally saw the pattern from Hook Hound that made me say, Oh! Oh! The pattern has tortoise shell eyes but she suggested glow in the dark pony beads, which I found on Etsy too. I would like to find glow in the dark buttons but could not, at least not online. Anybody have any suggestions?
What are you most proud of?
Being able to master the post stitches, and attaching the eyes.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Go for it! This only took 3 hours or so.
