One of the projects I picked up at the Hugathon was this, Grover! Isn't he amazing? There were a number of Sesame Street stuffies that were donated by a woman, who's mom had them in her basement from back in the 70s.
Despite all that, look at how CUTE he is!! I wish I had grabbed a couple more patterns, there was Big Bird and Cookie Monster too.
I had to get a close up of his big monster feet and hands.
I'll scan a copy of the pattern for the ladies at the society so they can use him again. I will certainly make Grover again, but with softer yarn. I love him and I'm so glad he'll go to a child in need.
And hey - did you know Grover's name in French is Gustave?? Adorable!
