Yeeeee I'm so excited about how this guy came out!  I made up the pattern.  The yarn is red heart super saver in "carrot" and some random off-yellow from my g-ma's yarn stash (which I was lucky enough to inherit when she passed).  I crocheted the eyes as well.





Well, what do you think?  If y'all want a pattern, let me know.

All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

OMG as SOON as I saw that thumbnail I was like, "!!!That's the Lorax!!!"  I love him!  Turned out awesome, grats on making the pattern yourself  Grin  Does he walk around your house telling you he speaks for the trees?  Ah, memories of the VHS version...

((edit: lol, I just realized that the topic has "I speak for the trees!" in the heading, didn't even notice I was so eager to comment!))
