Default theo's pig tail, complete with eyes

Got the eyes today, kindly delivered to my door in a box of assorted buttons for me to choose from.

A pink shirt button with a deep blue bobble button on top.
Used a soldering iron to burn the mouth into the sides.
With the markings in the beech he just has to be called.... streaky!

Got to admit Bob, it does look good.

Now if it was me doing it, it would likely look somewhat similar to this.
