Would you like to see what nearly made me both scream and cry at about 11:30 on Sunday night?

See inside those red circles above?  The backing for the fur has completely disintegrated in a couple of places on the left hand side, and one big bit on the right hand side during the stuffing process.  That would be the stuffing that took me the best part of 2 1/2 hours to do…  Now I have to un-stuff it all, replace the entire head gusset (which is a challenge now that all the curves have been clipped on the side pieces) and start again.  In fact, in thinking about it, I might need to start again with a whole new head.  Thankfully I have enough fabric for that, but it is SO frustrating!  I’ve never had this happen to me before, so I’m not sure what happened, but the fray check will be out in force this time round…
