A few weeks ago when I was making Monkey and Crocodile finger puppet sets (get your template HERE), I also made this guy:
Anyway, I used Melanie's Oven Mitt Pattern from The Crafty Cupboard (a great pattern - I used it often this past Christmas for kitchen-themed gifts).
The green, brown, and orange-red fabrics are all jersey, and the teeth and eyes are made of white felt. I fused a layer of fusible fleece interfacing to the green jersey and brown to give the body a little more stability. And obviously, I cut the top pattern piece in half to add those pointy scales up the middle.
He is good for munching monkeys,
and little girls.
Hope you are all having a good week! We've been playing non-stop with visiting family recently, and I had the sudden realization that I am moving in like two weeks. Yikes. Better get to work! So if I am not around as much at the beginning of August, now you know why. :)
