This was initially going to be my entry into the current tiny thing challenge but the neck seems to have stretched a little beyond 2 inches. It bums me out a little but I don't want to enter it if it's above the size limit.

My wonderful feller recently picked up the banjo and I made this itty bitty banjo in honor of him. <3






I even made a mini-hard shell case to protect it.


...and of course it's lined with grey "fur" (felt...)


Secret compartment for extra fingerpicks/strings/what have you.



Hope you like it!

So adorable! Great detail. It's a pity you couldn't enter it to the contest.

oh man, that is so fantastic Smiley too bad it's a little over the size limit though - i'd say you'd have a pretty good shot.

That is all kinds of awesome Smiley The detail is insane and the "fur" lining in the case is so clever! I love it!
