The Candy Man!

I've decided to try my hand at making a pumpkin head doll for Fall-O-Ween.  I tend to not use patterns on the things like this that I create......  I guess because of the nature of the wool.   Wool is so easy to manipulate and when sewing and stuffing kind of takes on a life of it's own.  When this guy materialized out of some plaid wool I knew he needed a wool scarf to keep the Autumn chill away. His prized wool "Candy Corn" just made sense since his head is a pumpkin and I didn't want him holding another pumpkin.  So here he is in all his candy corn glory.  He told me he wanted to check out Ebay for awhile and join the Jol Halloween Rug that I have on right now too.  It looks like the rug will soon be going to  a new home!  So how about  it "Mr. Candy Corn Lover"!  Maybe you can charm  your way into a new home too!  Your smile certainly charmed MY socks off!!

Head on over to Ebay by clicking on "Mr. Candy Corn Lover's" mug shot in the upper left corner!
