When I told John I wanted to make a squirrel for the Brooklyn General contest over the weekend, I could tell he was skeptical. He knows how much time it takes to make a new pattern, because he does plenty to help me by taking care of the girls and weighing in on my fabric and design choices. But I was confident I could throw together a patchwork squirrel on the first try.
Once again, my husband's cautious nature was right. The picture is a little blurry, but perhaps that actually helps make this squirrel look a little less like roadkill? Thought maybe you'd enjoy seeing this craft fail.
