And Danbo was born

I was curious about a little amazon box turned into a robot I was seeing popping up on camera blogs, until I googled him & fell in love! I wasn't willing to pay the stupid price they were asking and found a tutorial here:

and photo help from here:

This isn't a quick project, don't be fooled!! Took me about 6 hours all in all but I was so determined to have my own Danbo I didn't mind :) except maybe having brain freeze in the middle and reading the English like it was Japanese, I don't do well with instructions!
His legs, I inked up the edges with TH Burlap to give it more dimension

This is around about where I felt like throwing it in...but wanting to see his little head kept me going

Poor Danbo is shy, I'll have to introduce him to everyone
