My latest creation. Made this for my son's friend. His mom had mentioned wanting Perry for him and when she invited us for his birthday party I knew what to make him. The body has two 1" thick rectangle foam pieces. To make the tail not fall down I inserted a 6" piece of 1/4" dowel half into the body and the other half into his tail. Used RedHeart Super Saver. Here are the pics, enjoy.









the body is 5" x 9" overall from bill to tail he's 18" long and stands 5" tall.

Great job! I recognized him right away.

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Thanks. It took several tries to get it just right. I am very picky.

I am trying to turn all of my non crafty friends and relatives into crafters. It's like a cult. I want everyone to become addicted to my obsessions!
