This was my entry for a contest, sadly I didn't win. BUt I know a few people said they were happy to see him.
He was a pain in the butt to make. I bought the pattern but omg his head was not working out, and if I stuffed his body too much it would have been bigger than his head and look so funny. I had to alter the head a lot, to get it to look like this, which meant that a lot of it was hand sewn. My husband s=made the nose and we both worked on the eyes. I used fake eyelashes meant for people and added some iridescent plastic circles for his back. He is very big!
I a going to rework the pattern a bit more and have a friend help me make a better head, once that is done, this one will be for sale and I'll make a few to sell, but not so detailed to make it more affordable.
