Not every pattern works . . .
This poor little thing is a plushie I made to test the sitting pattern. As you can see, a lot of things went wrong. For example, the picture on the upper left is how he "sits" - the hind legs weren't positioned correctly. And that white patch on the back of his head is because the back part of the head pattern wasn't wide enough, that was required to close the gap. He also ended up with a hunched back.
Sometimes I look at him and think about fixing him up, because the face is kind of cute and it feels a little mean to leave him all messed-up and incomplete. I'm the sort of person who, if you give me a litter of kittens to pick from, I'll pick the runt with one eye, a missing tail, its leg in a cast and wobbling around in circles because the weird ones need the most love.
