I had the pleasure of doing my first test pattern for a wonderful designer a couple of months ago. When Debbie put up a call out for a Ernie ami pattern to be tested I could not resist. Watching him come alive was comical.
My kids were fascinated with the process and were not shy in telling me what their thoughts on him were during his progression.
Creepy was the main word that appeared...
There was even talk of zombies.
Even so, the kids (and I) were happy to see him come together.
And come together he did!
Ernie resides in my lounge room at home, hanging around my book shelves and holding up photo frames. He does a splendid job of it too.
