This was first featured in English Woman’s Weekly magazine in December 2012.

Named after one of the greatest comedy double acts, though he was not named in the original article, I fondly knew him as Eric!

A very simple design, quick to make. Basic shaping gives him bags of character.

Approximate height when finished is 34cm to top of head, 41cm to top of antlers.
