Here he is. It is a very wet weekend here so the photos are not great but you can get the gist.
I started with a pattern for a knitted snake found in this old book that my Dad used, to make me a dolls house *!? years ago. The book is coming appart at the seams, but I did a search on Amazon and you can still get it!
I used the pattern piece for the head enlarged 200%. I then cut out various pieces of
6.5 inch width rectangles from my stash and sewed them together, shaping the tail end.
The stuffing of the long body was a bit tricky but after a bit of help from a garden cane I managed.
And Sidwell Snake was born..
I think he may need to get out in the garden when the rain stops.
