Step 11: Yoshi Head (Eyes, Cheeks, and Nose)

The rest was hand sewn on, this includes the white cheeks over top of the green, the eyes with their pupils and highlights, and finally the nose.

For the nose, use an oversized baseball pattern, just cut an opening on one of the narrow parts of fabric leaving enough loose material to attach it to the head.  Make sure there is a good layer of batting then stuff the nose with filler.  The nostrils are black felts (as are the eye pupils).

Which pretty much finished the yoshi head build.  I did end up putting some foam padding inside the helmet area to get a little tighter and more comfortable fit for my son.

I also thought about adding a white screen mesh in front of my sons face... but I like it with his face being there. :)

Hello my Lil girl really want to be Yoshi she is 6 would you make one for her I will pay you.I live in Minnesota let me know thanks..

Yes, it was a little top heavy for him :( He was a trooper and it would come off between houses.
