What was your inspiration?
What says springtime more than darling little lambs? And Sweet Cheeks, Fuzzy Wuzzy, and Itty Bitty, with their adorable faces, chubby cheeks and soft, fluffy fuzziness are a perfect Spring trio! And theyd be a welcomed guest come Easter, as well.
What are you most proud of?
They come in three sizes, (sitting) approx. 11, 8, and 6, all in one pattern, so theres a lamb size for everyone, and no need to purchase multiple patterns to get different sizes.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
