This is one of my absolute favorite parts!
This is where we find out if my pattern was any good - where we see if my careful placement and re-placement of limbs and stitches ended up where I actually intended them to be.
It never fails - I get the same feeling every time. :) Once I'm all done stitching.....I give myself a moment......allow the tiny butterflies to form......then slowly turn my work inside out......carefully pulling and squeezing......my excitement building.....
And then! Sweet relief! And everytime - a small amount of disbelief. Like a mini-miracle has just occurred. I don't think I'm actually doubting myself, really. It's more a fascination with the process I think. I never get over it that if I think up A, and I draw out B, and I do some cutting and sewing of C & D, that I will inevitably end up with beautiful alphabet soup. And in this case - a cute little Eustace body!
What do you think?! *Sigh* I really do love plushie making.
Ooooo! I know what he needs!! Can you guess what it is? I'll give you a hint.....it begins with "b" and ends with "elly button".
