What are you most proud of? How well I was able to capture the facial expression just like the photo. Easy to do following the detailed step-by-step instructions and photos. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to tackle this project! It's just BIG, that's all! Advice: Do not skip any step, do not try to 'second guess' pattern instructions when making the trunk (it is supposed to curve!), stop and be sure stitch count is correct & use stitch markers.
