My little green character....

I needed a birthday gift for a two year old friend this weekend. I would prefer not to shop these days, but to use what I have to create gifts. I had Isaiah draw a picture of a creature that served as inspiration for this fellow. He's an alien, roughly. I used outgrown sweaters of the kids' that had been felted down and leftover quilt batting for the stuffing. An exercise in recycling! He was lots of fun to make up as I went along. He's actually version 2 because my first try didn't really work. Hope his two year old care giver enjoys him.
