Made for PerfectlyBohemian in the dotee 14 swap https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451470.msg5428305#msg5428305

A little forest dude based loosely on a few of her lovely pins.


He's got a cap of teeny mushrooms.


And more growing around his belly.


And a nod to classic dotees, a little dangly.


The face was absolutely inspired by this little guy.

I used a bit of thrift store score fur coat for his beard.

I wrote a little tutorial for his mushroom crown, it's here:
