The instructions were so clear and easy to follow step by step that I really surprised myself with this little denim guy. As well as the easy instructions and pattern, thanks Maggie, I used the denim left over from an old pair of jeans I had already cut from a previous craft, stuffing, thread and needle. I don’t own a sewing machine (yet) so I hand stitched the whole thing…though I think it would be better to use a machine I am still quite pleased with my efforts.
