Hey all, here is where I am at with my quest to build my own Kermit. After lots of test puppets this was the last one I put together. Lightly based on the version of the puppet that I remember as a child with the longer head and double neck and tried to get the older look with the cloth. I am reasonably happy with this one...still want one that looks like the current TV used puppet so if anyone wants to trade patterns..i would be up for that. This guy has looped inner mouth plates, inner lining and a black sleeve cover stitched inside that pulls out and over green arm if required. He has arm rods that can be removed or swivelled around to the back for a seated version, he also has plated feet with eyelets for attaching feet rods, his eyes are glossed (just felt pupils atm drilling failed...will try next time) I think I may have placed the eyes too far forward...not sure.
