I made two Elmos as gift last year and made one the usual red and the other one green so they could be easily told apart. I dubbed the green one "Melo."
I didn't post them here because I didn't take pics before giving them, and no sense getting the PBS goons on me for copyright infringement!
Recently, I was watching Sesame Street videos on Youtube and saw this
Elmo really is green! So I had to post and show how the "stole" my idea.
And here's a slightly more recent Spiderman toy. I wasn't totally thrilled with how he came out, but was all out of time. He was/is quite a hit, though.
And a group shot, just for fun. The kids love to see their toys on Craftster.
They are all pretty worn out, after being heavily played with by 3 year olds. I used fabric paint on wooden beads for the eyes for the Elmos. Which doesn't really work all that well as you can see. On the latest repaint, I gave Melo green eyes, as a change.
