Hippos with Santa hats were a thing I didn’t know I needed (even with I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas) until I got a custom request for one! 🙂
It took me a few tries to get the hat to come out just right, but now that I look at the festive little guy, I really want to make some more. And maybe add some Christmas lights looped around his neck and trailing off…
…But that will have to wait until I resculpt the master hippo, for lo my dog chewed his little head off. *sighs*
