Wow that was really rude of the cashier! I'm 20 and have been sewing for a few years, and when I go to Spotlight (which is about an hrs drive away) I've noticed that a lot of the time the cashier will serve someone else ahead of me while I'm standing there laden down with bolts of fabric. They look at you then just move on to the next person. Makes it worse when I have my 15 month old daughter in the pram kicking up a fuss coz we're not moving anywhere (although she sometimes helps get the point across that I've been standing there awhile lol)
She is gorgeous!! I love her goggles and boots. I am all set to start making my first poppet but just have a few questions. Did you use the original size pattern? And what size are her eyes? I can't wait to make one for my daughter!
I'd like to start this by saying I have never made a "stuffie", but it looks to me that it's a simple pattern. I would just draw out a side view of the kangaroo, cut two and then make an insert for the tummy. That's just an idea I found this link - it isn't for a kangaroo but it has the general idea. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=252083.0
