This was fun. More fun than I thought it would be.
Look at the cute little legs! It stands all by itself. It's about 6 inches tall.
Before it had ears it looked like a camel.
I followed the directions in the book by Winsome Douglass, though I enlarged the pattern a little bit because I had no idea how you would turn something so small. I later read that she recommends using cartridge paper(?) templates and folding over the seam allowances so that you can stitch it together with the right sides facing out. Kind of applique it together I guess. Which means you could probably use fusible or foundation paper or similar nowadays. Maybe next time.
My hand piecing is going very well. Perhaps you'll see something about that tomorrow.
