Notes

Making six (!) of these to give out to the animators that help out Lucas on his Why Obama Now project. Hope they turn out cute!

The main colors used are Black, White and Doe Heather. Accent colors are Whirlpool for the tie, Pumice Heather for grey hairs, Hazelnut for nose, and Garnet Heather and Currant for the mouth. They are about 3 inches tall.

They are not “cute” cute. I am pretty happy with how they turned out though. I was taking notes while I made them (and kind of tested them through 4 more…) and will probably write up a pattern. Don’t know if it’ll be free, or for a donation to the cause. Let me know if there’s any interest! If you do colorwork for the shirt, it is a little more difficult, but otherwise it is a light intermediate pattern.

9/3: Made my last one while taking more notes and pictures. I will work on getting this pattern up in the next week or two.
