Notes

About 2 or 3 yards each (estimated) of Dream in Color Smooshy and Lion Brand Fun Fur. The sunglasses came from Michael’s and I had to shorten the arms. The Gibson guitar is a Christmas ornament that I ordered from Christmas In Prescott. The hat is an original design meant to replicate Billy Gibbons’ Bamileke hat. I didn’t have brown yarn in my stash so I knit it in black. All yarn came from my stash.

I gave Little Billy to Billy Gibbons back stage after the ZZ Top concert, which was fantastic, at the Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary, Monday, March 17th, 2014. He liked it! :-) Third picture. Right to left: Billy Gibbons and Little Billy (lead guitar), Frank Beard (drums), me, Dusty Hill (bass guitar).

The others are some pictures that I took at the concert. I also saw Billy Bob Thornton backstage. He’s in Calgary filming the new TV show “Fargo”.
