I consider this pattern a solidly intermediate pattern. There are 2 areas with extreme opposing curves that may be difficult to those unfamiliar with the techniques used. Careful sewing will be needed to keep all seams aligned where the colors change and hand sewing is used to attach the tail.

Clear instructions and good advice
This was such a cute pattern! The instructions are very easy to follow as well, so I highly recommend this! It can be somewhat difficult though if you’re new to sewing so I recommend visiting their YouTube channel to get a feel for the process.
I reduced mine by 15% and it was a real challenge for the toes and the tail, but I was always pleasantly surprised how well the handful I made turned out. Especially since I used recycled materials from a thrift store! Towards the end I combined the neck and belly as one piece from the template and I didn't see much difference compared to sewing them together from two pieces. This was my first time following a template so the accompanying video was a real help! Thoroughly pleased!
I had to use patterned lines as it was the only fabric I had. But it turned out great. I did the entire thing in hand stitch since my sewing machine skills are not there yet. Still very good pattern and video tutorial. Very easy to gollow. The endproduct is beautiful look at my handsome boi
