At first I thought it was a creepy worm... with hair on the top... So I was creeped out at first. XD
I make small felt animals occasionally, and I was just using a pre-made pattern (which I modified a bit to fit my preferences), but are those lines at the end what they call darts? And what does it look like un-sewn? And what is the benefit of them vs just cutting it out curved? Strength? Shape? Both?
