at last!

Here he is!

My patient little Finny would point at him while I was finishing up and all he'd get from me was, "Not quite yet!" And you know, I never did find that fourth missing wheel. And wouldn't you guess, Michaels didn't have any more wheels. So I ended up making my own and I actually like them better - they're oversized and I think it adds to the whimsy of the toy.

I really loved the technique for making this guy. Again, here's the link to the Martha appearance by Katie Steuernagle: Pull Toys. I wish I knew more kids young enough to want one. Trying to think of other ways to use my huge bag of paper mache. Maybe some mobiles.
