crafting with grandma - Platypus in a Fedora Hat!

My grandsons are huge fans of a certain turquoise blue platypus in a brown fedora! Did I say, "huge"? I should have said, "HUGE!!!" :-) So, as I thought about the hats I wanted to make for them this year for Christmas, it was pretty obvious I needed to make them platypus in a fedora hats. I found a pattern on line which got me started, then "tweaked" it a bit, added a "bill" and changed the eyes from being angry - almost scary - to having a "classic" "Perry" look!

So, what do you think? I'm happy with it . . . now on to making one a bit bigger and one a bit smaller so all three of my grandsons will be able to wear their platypus in a fedora hats this winter!

(I'll post the pattern in a few days if anyone is interested in making one of their own!)
