Pattern was very easy to follow and came out adorable! This was my second plushie ever to make and my first one looked a little cleaner, but that was on me, not the pattern. I used flannel, which I had never worked with before and came with a set of challenges I didn't know to expect. Ended up needing handsewing to fix some errors and the sewing looks a little clunkier than I'd like, but he's still incredibly cute and the person I made him for loves him.

Great pattern! Pretty easy to follow, this was my first attempt making plushies and it was really fun, I’d say it turned out quite well!

Thank you so much for making this pattern! It's so easy to follow, and I had a great time turning an old Pac-Man T-shirt into Pac-Manatee! (couldn't resist the pun)

I love this pattern! I’ve recently gotten into making plushies and this is such a nice pattern. I like that the only appliqué is the nose holes, it goes by so much quicker! I do wish the pattern had Arrow’s to indicate the fur direction, but it’s pretty easy to figure out and write it yourself. Definitely recommend!
