Samuel Scarecrow - New Needle Felted Handmade OOAK Art Doll

Samuel Scarecrow - 16" Needle Felted Handmade OOAK Scarecrow Art Doll 

Unlike his cousin Stan The Pumpkin Man "Samuel Scarecrow" is not apprehensive about anyone taking his pumpkins. In fact, he's more than happy to let anyone take his pumpkins and his bales of hay for free as long as they do the work to harvest the pumpkins and hay bales. He feels that he is too regal to toil in the fields. He was meant for more refined activities like being waited on. Perhaps he should have chosen a different line of work than being a scarecrow.  What do you think....

Samuel's inner body is fully bendable and is sculpted out of Sunflower's alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber and his outer body from a beige mix from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber. His black boots were made using black alpaca roving  from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  His hair is a combination of straw yellow roving and Ivy's brown alpaca roving from Rock Garden Alpacas Fiber.  Small pieces of orange roving and rust colored roving were used for his orange nose and rust colored cheek circles. His scarecrow features are outlined with black DMC embroidery floss.

His multi-colored pants are made from a Fall roving blend mix and are needled felted on him. He is wearing a brown and orange felt gathered hand sewn hat, orange felt hand sewn shirt with cuffs and black DMC embroidery floss embellishments. Roving buttons and bow-tie are felted to his shirt. His long hand sewn vest is made of brown patterned felt.

Samuel is sitting on a grapevine pumpkin and is holding a bale of hay in his hands which he can hardly wait to get rid of.  Besides being too messy for him, it just doesn't fit his regal attitude. At least he doesn't think so. Maybe someone should tell him he is a scarecrow after all......
