What are you most proud of? That I made this! I learned a bunch of new techniques I had never tried before. If I didn't have the class to help me, he would not have come out looking very good. To have these processes shown to me made all the difference. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just keep trying! I had to retry several things (ok, I admit it, even i-cord took a few tries! lol I guess that makes me an "idiot"), but I kept going and it all worked out ok. My biggest bit of advice is to make sure to give an extra tug on the 1st and 2nd stitches of each needle. I was pretty good about it, but occasionally i would forget and now I have some spots with ladders that drive me crazy every time I look at it. This was a great learning experience and I can't wait to make the next 2 animals!
