Bert and Ernie

To carry on with the Muppet theme that started with Cookie Monster and Elmo, here are two lovable buddies- Ernie and Bert!

Surprisingly,these two were pretty easy to make. Bert in particular was made using the same shapes as was used to make the yellow Angry Bird. A more conical head shape, with the effort going into getting the proportions right. 

Ernie's head was made with the simple round shape. 

These guys were all about the details. I tried to get their shirt colours and facial details as close as I could. As always, making the hair is always loads of fun. 

Bert stands at around 6 cm (2.4 in) while Ernie is a tiny bit shorter at 5 cm (2 in). Both are made using only 3 mm strips.
