Bennie the Bean!
The curve of the smile on the Bean has been perfected. The big, big hat is finished. Here’s a photo of Annie in the hat:
The Bean’s shoes are finished and they are the most stylish shoes ever seen on a Soy Bean!
We make patterns for every single part of a mascot in our studio. The pattern for Bennie’s shoes is one of the most interesting patterns I’ve ever seen – it’s one piece and it works because of the curves and darts – only 2 darts! Matt is our mascot shoe guy – he’s also one of the mascot milliners (hat-makers).
Rob and Gabe, of Alley Woodworks in Texas, have sent the eyes and they have been painted. The eyelid is secured and stitched.
