name :: Lead Balloon

completed :: January 2012

size :: ~10" tall, 14" wingspan (spread out)

materials :: anti-pill fleece, hand-painted safety eyes, acrylic felt, tubing, wire

notes :: "It went over like a lead balloon"... Apparently the choice of "over" vs. "down" is regional and mostly US vs. UK. Who knew. The pattern needs some tweaking because I wanted to only have a 4-piece instead of 5-piece, but it still amuses me immensely. I have a weird sense of humor.
