He sits on the low cabinet in our living room but my partner says we might find him in another place the following morning as he’s sure he’ll come to life at night! Creepy!

He involved a lot of counting, so not one to do when holding a conversation.
The stripes and the bobbles helped find my place each time I picked him back up.

Filling the toes with tiny amounts of stuffing was very fiddly and I wasn’t expecting to have to sew the feet together but it didn’t take too long.

He is rather larger than i was expecting but I love him just the same.

    1. Hello there! I found I had the same problem. I think you’ll be finding the popcorns tend to twist around?
      I placed my popcorns where I though best. Because of the increases and decreases they will never align perfectly so a stitch in front or a stitch behind the previous one.
      It was a long time ago since I made this chap so I can’t be entirely precise but I remember adjusting the popcorns a little.
