Ok, last Christmas present related post (for now  Wink
my friends asked me to make her a bantha for christmas. This was my attempt. I'm not 100 percent happy with the face, but I think it looks cute, despite not being totally Bantha-like...for those of you who don't know, Banthas are from star wars  Grin

this last picture is him without his fur on yet. He has a full wire skeleton, including a kind of rib cage, to give him a stable form. I filled him with polyfill and then wrapped him with thread to keep it all inside the skeleton. Then, I wrapped with white wool batting before putting on the higher quality brown roving for fur.
