No I do not! But it's pretty simple; make the plasticky-looking bits out of Sculpey, paint them, and glue them to a needlefelted body. There are lots of excellent videos on YouTube on how to needlefelt, as well as some really great books; I personally recommend "Needle Felting: To The Point" by Harlan and "I Felt Awesome" by Moxie.

Hahaha! Thank you! These are fun to wear around bat-phobic people. They always scream "AAH THERE'S A BAT ON YOU" and swat at them
