Bernard the Elf

I was asked to do a custom order for an acquaintance of mine last week and she asked me to do an elf plushie for her 2 yr old. His name is Bernard and he leaves her daughter letters everyday counting down to Christmas. This was such a cute idea, I just had to help and try to make the neatest little guy.

This is what I came up with...

My original sketch

Did the mouth, eyebrows, and cheeks with string.
This was after the felt was cut out.. 

And after..


I can't wait for the little girl to open it on Christmas. I hope she loves it. :)
