She is adorable.  Mini's take quite a bit of patience and "gentle persuasion" in the turning.   The results are certainly worth it though.  Those tiny little bundles you can hold in your hand - I just love them.  The trick is, if you are totally frustrated, put it down and go back to it later, if you pull or push too hard, you may rip a seam.  Sometimes also, if it just won't turn through, push it back to where you started and start again.  Sometime the seam might position itself slightly differently this time and it will come through easier.  A pair of hemostats for turning is a must for mini makers.  You can get them through any bear supplier and they really grip the fabric to help turning.  Make sure you grip the fabric though and not just the fur.  Keep at it, they are such fun.
