What are you most proud of? My Westie Puppy looks like my sister's dog, Duffy! My goal was to make it look as real as possible, and I think I've accomplished that.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Working with eyelash yarn can be challenging. Take your time and enjoy the learning process. It takes time to create a work of art!
