Nancy's reaction made it all worth while!!
A friend of mine suspects that most knitted toy patterns are adapted from sewing patterns, and that's why all the sewing. I did find some (after the fact) that don't (appear to) involve as MUCH sewing, so I'll likely explore those before doing anything like this again unless I have a definite design in mind.

But for all that, the response she got was all that really mattered.
