MR Kermit pattern

    So, necessity is the mother of invention. And I needed a pattern. I, in no way, "invented" this pattern. But I did take the now infamous dissected picture of the Master Replicas Kermit poser, measured the eye indentation and scaled it up by 504% (the diameter measurement of a ping pong ball is 38-40mm) and then in photoshop traced each individual part and outlined them. They're not 100% perfect, being based off the poser, and I find myself tracing the printed pattern with a black sharpie to clean up the lines and make them smoother or more even. You'll also need to change the bottom of the torso pattern if you want a puppet. But these will at least hopefully give those wanting a Kermit replica a jumping off point towards an accurately scaled Kermit. I wasn't able to get the collar from the picture as it was too distorted and I'm not a photoshop genius. Hopefully someone with that pattern will feel generous and post theirs. Anyways, here we go.

    I did almost the same thing, not sure if the pic I had was larger, but I traced it first with a sharpie and then enlarged it. Personally, I only went as large as the poser, anything much larger than that I didn't feel the head would be the right shape without padding...
