Default skip's dad (crayfish imitation)

just made me one after finding it on the web. only thing I think I would do different is use brown chenile instead of the dubbing for the body or else you will be dubbing all day and it still isn't thick enough I don't think.. lol. heres the instructions for it. skip's dad

not bad I bet it would work! I had only white painted dumbell eyes and I just used permanent marker to make um black. I think it looks not bad for my 1st one! here it is! I will try to make a chenile body one later. this ones not bad for being my prototype lol.

Hi George,

I like the first one with dubbing. I think it would be better if you picked out the dubbing on the bottom to make it shaggy.

I like the chenille version, it gives more the illusion of legs. Maybe tie some rubber legs with a knot to point them down? Or some marabou to give a swimming effect.
