I used some yarn that I have never crocheted with before, his furry body was made using Lion Brand's Luxe Fur in turquoise and I used Lion Brand's Fun Fur in red for his shaggy hair. I really liked getting to use these different kinds of yarns, I hope that I can find more projects to work with them again. The rest of the body was crocheted with my usual Loops & Threads yarn.
His mouth was a little more difficult for me to figure out, I wasn't sure if he should have a mouth full of teeth or just a smile. I decided to give him a big mouth full of pointy teeth, I think it turned out cute. Another cute thing about the Backson, is his eyes hiding under the shaggy hair.
Crocheting this guy was so much fun, I hope the recipient is happy with him too!
