I've meaning to post this for ages - I made this for the boyfriend's birthday a few months ago. Milky is based on the dancing, adventuring milk carton on the music video for Blur's 'Coffee and TV'. If you'd like to see the video it's on Youtube here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXRVX1AKAew.

Milky is made from felt and handsewn from my own pattern. His arms and legs have pipecleaners to make them posable though his legs aren't quite strong enough to hold him up, hopefully I'll get that right next time I make a toy. I hope you like him!

WOW YOU NAILED IT!  I saw the thumbnail and immediately thought of that Blur video (which we lovingly refer to as Strawberry Milk Death).  Excellent Job!

I'm glad he's recognisable. I plan to make a strawberry girlfriend for him some time in the future.

I never knew that guy was from a Blur video! I had seen him around before but didn't know what he was from. So so cute. If you do make his strawberry girlfriend I would love to see her too! Great job. Now I want one  Grin

This is great!
I never heard of Blur before today. I really like them. Would you please share your pattern ? What did you use to make the face? was it a fabric marker?
