Very educational. Highly recommend!
Brilliant pattern. Highly detailed, loads of can't go wrong! One of my favourite patterns :)
This pattern isn't hard, but you have to pay attention to what you're doing. It's a little bit bulky with all of the layers of foam and fleece, but it turns out pretty darned cute.
Great tote to make. Good, clear instructions. Great to embroider on.
