Yep, the head is made with two Quaker Oat cardboard tubes. The bottom of his mouth is wear the tubes connect. The shirt is actually just some white fabric I had with a checked pattern drawn on with a fabric marker, as that's what was available. It's not an actual shirt. Just fabric wrapped around the tube and a collar and tie attached. TML's photos posted above show how he did his, and it's almost just like mine in that respect.

Hey TML, Did you ever go any further on your Miss Piggy head sculpture? Made a puppet of her? I love you work, great stuff!

Been working this summer on refining the sculpture with a friend and figuring out how to cast it and use cold foam. Anyone have any suggestions?

did you sew the fleece and mouth fabric together first, and then stretch it all over the cardboard tube? or did you use another method to putting on the fleece skin and red mouth fabric?
