I made two Elmos as gift last year and made one the usual red and the other one green so they could be easily told apart. I dubbed the green one "Melo."
I didn't post them here because I didn't take pics before giving them, and no sense getting the PBS goons on me for copyright infringement!  Tongue
Recently, I was watching Sesame Street videos on Youtube and saw this

Elmo really is green! So I had to post and show how the "stole" my idea.  Grin



And here's a slightly more recent Spiderman toy. I wasn't totally thrilled with how he came out, but was all out of time. He was/is quite a hit, though.


And a group shot, just for fun. The kids love to see their toys on Craftster.


They are all pretty worn out, after being heavily played with by 3 year olds. I used fabric paint on wooden beads for the eyes for the Elmos. Which doesn't really work all that well as you can see. On the latest repaint, I gave Melo green eyes, as a change.

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.

Sometimes you discover that your good idea have already been done Tongue annoying.
I love the design of your first elmo

Thanks! I had given up on getting any responses to this thread. I agree, I need a tin foil hat to keep my ideas from escaping and getting stolen.
