What are you most proud of? Getting it done in one crafternoon, and I think the embroidery turned out ok.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When doing the joins at the top and bottom of each pea, use the manual dial (not the pedal) to bring the stitching up to the other edge's line of stitching - right at the 1/4" junction. Gaps and overlaps can be tricky to organise when it's turned inside out. Marking a dot to aim for, on the ends of each piece, would probably help manage this. I used knots, rather than backstitching, to secure these points once I had checked it was all aligned.

Very cute! I actually had one of these when I was a kid but it wasn't handmade. Great job!

Thank you! It's very promising that you remember it as an adult - here's hoping my friend's baby love it too!
