      What's there to laugh at? I think you did a great job! It's very rewarding to complete a project you designed from start to finish.

        Capturing so much personality in a first project shows burgeoning talent . It's a nice piece and I'm looking forward to seeing how you develop your skills.

        What lessons have you learnt from your first project?

          Congratulations on your first pattern! I'm sure it is the first of many to come!

          I had done one of a Missouri mule quite some time ago for a friend, I had looked for a good picture of one with a harness but had no luck. So I settled for just a profile.

                    I find making my own patterns as much fun and challenging as cutting them.

                      Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

                      The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.
