I started it yesterday morning but my parents came home early from their trip to Buffalo so I had to stash it away until my dad went to bed and attached a few pieces than worked on it in the morning since he had to leave a 4am for a tree delivery to Hamilton so...lol.  I had plenty of time to finish it.

The fabric for the background is actually a man's t-shirt that my dad grabbed for me in early 2011 at a Goodwill store in new market [He finds me clothing that aren't too bad so I can seam rip them for fabric projects Wink ].  I just realized that as I finished it off, lol.

My dad grew up with Gumby and a few years ago I made him a gumby birthday cake so for father's day [I finished testing an Eeyore amigurumi for a fellow craftster a few days ago so I thought of this hoop for my dad].

My dad was so giddy and couldn't stop smiling [first time for everything.. I swear his face may break soon if he doesn't stop, lol].

EDIT:  I kept thinking there was something missing for days after I made this and I clued in yesterday as to what it was... Gumby was missing his eyebrows, pokey's hair started a little too low and was missing a small clump between his ears.. so it's fixed now [yesterday morning and this morning i fixed 'em.. lol]

Here's the original photo I found online:

Here's a close up of mine.... a very good lesson I learned doing this as I plan on making more hoopla fun... always cut the felt a touch bigger than needed.

And up on the wall with the woodcarving my late grandfather made and the painting my mum bought a few years ago

I thought they looked weird witht he background but ma thought they were in the water so ......suuuuuuure.... Gumby and Pokey wish dad was in some tropical local with them, lmao.  [running joke in the family my dad never gets his second trip to cuba it's been 10 years ..everytime he saves up for it something goes wrong and he has to spend them money elsewhere.. next jan is take 8 at his trip, lmao].

Thanks for looking! Grin

What a kind thing to do for your dad.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

It's the least I could do what with being a brat for the last 15 years, lmao.

Everyone that's seen the pictures I took of it, or seen it in person loves it.  Hehe makes me feel all warm and fuzzy Wink  ♥
