Arms And Legs

It looks a bit like I’ve replaced my sewing room for a slaughterhouse as there are sheep appendages everywhere.

Although this part of the pattern is straightforward, here’s a few suggestions to make arms and legs construction go a bit smoother:
If you have an open toeapplique foot, this is a good time to use it. Since your sewing on a line you traced from a template, it’s easier to see the hoof curves this way.
I found that using a turning tool helps flip the arms and legs right side out.
Stuffing is always a tedious process, long skinny arm and leg tubes make it even worse! Using a stuffing tool (even a chopstick would work) helps push the fiberfill into all the nooks and crannies and pack everything tight.

    Okay, I have to admit you have me a bit worried now. I made the “coat” a couple of days ago and it went quickly. I haven’t even started on the body and it’s looking like a lot of pieces. Eek! Now I’m glad my son passed on getting one of these. I just have one to make. I better get a move on it! =)
