cotton, iron on some interfacing (minus the seam allowances). If you
don't have heavy iron on, use 2 layers of medium. Stitch (remembering
to leave an opening someplace on the uppers so you can get his big feet
into the boots.
Once made you can coat in glue to make a bit shinny, or probably skip
the step if you find some polished cotton. Use at least two coats of
glue. Play w/ a sample, you may find it works better watered down.
For everyone else, who's not sure what we're talking about... The Think
Geek mascot needs clothing, and there's been a call put out.
Looking for some geek fame??? It's a place to play.
