Sssssso (Sew?) Much Better!

Poor Snake was doomed from the beginning - between some wonky tension and minimal allowances, the seams were bursting all over the place.

We opened a seam near Snake's throat, removed the stuffing, and used our trusty new Singer machine to restitch the entire length of Snake on both sides.

The fluff was in decent shape so we decided to reuse it, (also a good way to make sure Snake wasn't overstuffed!)  The question, of course, was how to re-stuff a 3 foot snake through a 2 inch hole?  Like a sausage!  Worked like a charm.  Not flattering, but it got the job done.

Snake is now back to his old ssssssself!
