The Frog Prince

Lately, Strapping Young Lad has been seeing things and requesting that we make something like it... My Idea Notebook is chock full of these inspirational findings, and I have informed Strapping Young Lad that I am no longer taking requests at this time...until we get caught up.

Meanwhile, this is the latest piece of inspiration that caught Strapping Young Lad's fancy.

The French Porcelain-Style Frog

This is actually one of those subscribe-for-a-year and get-a-different-frog-every-month for one giant frog collection.  (No, we are not subscribing.  We need a frog collection like we need another hole in the head.)

So, no frog collection, but I thought we could put a frog in the "french porcelain-style" on a shirt for Strapping Young Lad.  I asked, "Does it have to have a crown?" "Yes!" he said.  Apparently that is one of its more important features...

At any rate, I sized down and modified this adult-sized hoodie for Strapping Young Lad. 

I had to use a different fabric for the back of it, because I got confused (distracted, is more like it) during the cutting process and did too much chopping on the large pieces to have enough for the back of the shirt.

I did make absolutely sure there was enough green fabric for a pocket, which the frog is on.

My froggy-admirer is very content with it.
