This was supposed to be an entry for the Threadknits contest, and is based on a T-shirt design that Threadless has.  Anyway, I was too late entering it, so I thought I'd present it here!



It's actually called "Quit Howling at Me", but I've been referring to it as Mr. Moon and Wolfie.



The arms are wired with coat hanger wires and took some fiddling to get right. The wolf was hard to get right too, and I'm still not completely satisfied with him.




Anyway, I'm really proud of it!  It measures about 9 inches wide without the arms. Mores photos available at my Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/cheewawamomma/

Thanks belruel and pixieval!  I just winged it from the t-shirt graphic.  The wolf is based on a conglomeration of pictures of wolves I've seen online, both plush and real.  I made 3 versions of it actually, one entirely black, one like this grey one (without the white snout), and then this one.  The first two looked more like mice so I gave them to my daughter! LOL!

This is absolutely charming! Mr. Moon's hands and expression are fantastic--I'm so impressed with his hands--I'm crazy about those fingers!

I've never seen the shirt before, but now I'm thinking I want one, lol

OMG, I love this.  It is so cute.  Before I opened the post, I thought it was one of the ghosts from SMB.  It's absolutely adorable.   Grin
