22nd June 2011: Like two ping pong balls floating in a pool of green algae Ok, so they may sound simple enough, but getting the right look to Kermit's eyes is really tricky. You don't just cut a ping pong ball in half and sharpie on the pupil. You have to trim, sand and paint the eyeball before you even start to add the pupil. My Kermit's pupils were drawn onto sticker paper, trimmed carefully, and attached very delicately. I've then added a clear coat of varnish to both eyes, to protect it from lil bumps here and there. :)
Now to work on the sewn patterns.
