Crafty: Sweater Animals

I really, really want to try making these sweater stuffed animals from Martha Stewart. It would be a great way to turn an accidentally shrunken sweater or thrift store find into a cute gift.

But I'm a little worried about how it would turn out. I'm not much of a seamstress. What does "pin wattle and comb" mean you are supposed to do? And wouldn't the sweater come unraveled during the process?

I think its referring to where to pin the chickens waddle and comb. In the 3rd diagram it looks like the comb and waddle are on the inside, but then when you turn the whole piece right-side-out, it will look right. Does that make sense? Cute idea...I bet you could find some great sweaters at the thrift store too!
Please post if you try it.

this sweater animal project may be a great idea for a LAC party in the future. it would be the perfect thing to accompany a baby gift.
