How could it not be what she wanted?! It's adorable! I wish I knew if this new little bean was a boy cause I would totally buy it from you!

The only feedback I would offer is to maybe drop the nose a little lower. It seems kind of high and close to the eyes, but that is my purely uneducated opinion since I have no crafting skills at all

I could always make a newborn one in a gn colors. I have plenty of yarn. Suprisingly, it didn't take me that long. I think I agree on the beak. My DH and I are thinking the same thing when I finished it.

Very cute. This is why I always accept payment prior to Commencing work.

For what it's worth I always do the eyes touching each other and the beak touching the eyes. I find that in my eyes it looks disproportionate when there is space between it all. That is just my personal choice though. I know many who do leave spaces.

Really, I can spell. It's my phone that can'tSent from my iPhone using DS Forum

Thanks for the tip. I was thinking that, but said no, stick to the pattern.

I always put the beak very close to the bottom of the hat with the eyes just above, and the eyes touching one another also. It's super cute, I love the colors!
