MAKE YOUR OWN KERMIT...Sort of

    Hey All,
    I don't know if this has been discussed yet...

    OK, so I won an auction on ebay not long ago of the Kermit Frogtographer from Macy's with the intent of turning it into a puppet. A friend already gave me one for my birthday back in December and ever since then, I've thought, "that would make a great puppet." So I went on ebay and found an excellent price for the plush and did it. I have to work on the body and the fingers yet, and the head definately needs foam work but it really looks like the real thing. I strongloy suggest you all go and do this. You won't be sorry.

    Plus if you want to make your own Kermit, this is a great way to examine the design.

    If you are heartless enough, you can take him totally apart at the seams and you have a Kermit the Frog pattern. I want to do that, but I haven't got the nerve.

    And he's happy about that!! --->:)

    Yes, yes, I'm cold and heartless...oh the burden of being evil...ho hum...none the less, my Kermit is so much happier now that he doesn't have to only speak 4 lines. I've given him a real voice. Its all for the better.

    I haven't taken it apart totaly, just enough for use as puppet. I actuall can't bring myself to pull it apart completely...Guess I'm not THAT evil after all.
