Derek 1.0 with thrift store fleece and hot glue instead of sewing (foam everything though)
Not the best pic of him but
Version 2.1. Done with high end fleece, the special puppet stitch, etc. I redid the head once. I can't get the shape right. The first head was better overall shape but some imperfections in the mouth area (mostly inside where I put in a foam strap to hold my hand closer to the mouth plate). This head is better up front but the profile and overall look has a lot to be desired. Hence the interest in your head pattern.
2.1 got roughed up since the main places I brought him to was a gay bar in Chicago and one guy decided to try to break my hand while it was inside the puppet. Yeah. He also has his own Facebook page and has had long discussions with people on a city bus.
