The person who made this is on craftster, but she hasn't been active for awhile. 


She explains (sorta) what she did when she made a crochet bender the same way. 

Aw, thanks for the compliments!
I was kind of worried that he was too goofy and sloppy looking, but now I am feeling more encouraged.  Smiley
Btw, I have only been crocheting for just less than a year, once you get the hang of single crochet, increasing, and decreasing (very simple), it is easy to start creating basic shapes.  It is almost like sculpting in way.
His compartment is actually a cut portion of a 2 litre pop bottle. I just crocheted a cover for it, really, and then lined the inside with felt.  I used a similar method, but with felt on the outside, for hubby's bday present last year - Gir toy with head compartment:
Important to know - pop bottle plastic (unlike bubble bath bottle plastic) shrinks and warps when in contact with hot glue.  I learned this the hard way... had to completely redo the door, and portions of the rest of the body compartment warped slightly too.  Eek!


Visit http://ghilie.wordpress.com/ for the poppet pattern.
