My partner in the Jim Henson swap has received so I can share. I used NyteFryres crochet poppet pattern

He is 22 inches tail. I didn't measure Kermit. Kermit was made using crystal crochet thread and a 7 steel hook. His buddy was made with F hook and good old Red Heart super saver
Comments, suggestions and criticism always welcome.

And a close up to show his teeth. I web searched and used caricature
drawings of Jim Henson as models. Most of them showed him with a grin showing only the upper teeth.

The teeth are from a doll parts supplier and called "Shirley" teeth. I'm glad I bought a few of them...I see all kinds of uses for them.

Thank you! I didn't want to cover up his feet. They tickle me for some reason!LOL I thought of making some sandals. For some reason I could only see them made out of hemp...you know how it is when you get a certain idea in your head..it gets stuck and nothing else will do....but my partner doesnt like anything made out of hemp so barefoot he goes!  Tongue
