Big Agriculture, Big Soybean Mascot

There have been many generations of Bennie the Bean, the soybean mascot for the Indiana Soybean Alliance. This is the latest one. Soybeans are big agriculture in Indiana and Bennie the Bean is a BIG Bean

The curve of the smile on the Bean has been perfected.  The big, big hat is finished.

The Bean’s shoes are finished and they are very stylish shoes Soybean shoes!

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.

…and here’s Bennie the Bean
