We have deviated from the original design, but only on Smurf's request e.g. the claws were not part of the original design, and he decided on just 2 arms as six arms would have been very crowded. The monster's face emerged as Smurf played with my button collection so the original zig-zag mouth became a row of square button 'teeth'. Altering a design to fit the designer is ok by me.
I was up till 1am on Saturday night finishing all the sewing-up, then I popped him into Smurf's room to be discovered in the morning. There was some happiness went on :]
Smurf has named him Phil (which was the same name as his snowman back in February!) I was hoping for 'Tripod' as he stands up on 3 legs...
So, full name "Phill Green" is a hit. Yay. ;}
