Description

My husband Carl has loved Muppets since he was a small child and I always wanted to make him one so this week when I needed something fun to keep me busy this is what I did for him. It took me two days and was the funnest thing I have made in some time! I tried to show the steps in making “him” to help anyone that may want to make a Muppet. If you have any questions feel free to ask I love to help :)

I made temporary paper eyes and brows and stuck them on with foam risers to see if I liked the face before making it and attaching I strongly recommend this if you try to make one. The eyes were the worst part to make :(

Hope you like mini Carl the real Carl was speechless :)

    Do you have your steps on a blog? It is so cool and my son would like to make one. He went online and was going to buy one but they are so expensive! Please let me know what if any pattern you used.

      I made my own quick pattern which I could try to make a picture of and have all the steps in pictures but it’s not letting me upload them. I will write you as soon as I get them up and will try to make a picture of the pattern as well :)
      Thanks!
