"Just wanted to let you know I purchased the Hadley the Horse pattern a while ago in order to make a specific stuffie. I just finally got around to making him this past weekend and was thrilled with how easily he went together. I literally finished all but the minor details within a few hours and believe me, that's a BIG deal for me, as I'm not all that patient a sewer. The pattern was SUPER easy to follow and my stuffie turned out great!" -Kim H.
