New Puppet Build ~ Gustavo

In all, I was very satisfied with this build. I think the character is adorable. He reminds me of a relative of The Muppet's Scooter which I love since Scooter was one of my favorites.

I'm always looking to improve my puppet building skills so, any advice is welcome. I machine sewed most of the pattern but, followed instructions to whip stitch the mouth which left very visible stitching. Maybe I should have machine sewed [?] maybe I need better skills [?]

Gustavo was made from the Project Puppet simple series melonhead pattern.
