Gotta Love Handmade Scarecrows

You can't be a doll designer or doll pattern designer and not have one, two, three, four or more scarecrow dolls. They can be primitive, classic, scary, well-dressed, tattered, large or small bodied, cheerful, scary, etc. It doesn't matter. They're a staple of every crafter. Why is that? Why are we so enthralled with them? I'm not sure, but I'd like to find out.

That got to me thinking about scarecrows and their history. Oh, boy! Another research project. For all my blog readers you know how I HATE research projects!

So, I did a little research into the history if scarecrows, which can be found here.

I, personally, have made many scarecrows and have designed many scarecrow doll patterns for my Linda Walsh Originals website. 

I have also designed several custom fabrics using some of my scarecrow designs.   My Fall Custom Fabric Designs Collection can be seen HERE.  

For crafters it really doesn't matter whether you are a crafter of primitive crafts, Victorian crafts, country crafts, etc. No matter what type of crafter or designer you are we all still have one thing in common: we are all still in love with scarecrows. I know I am and I suspect you are as well.
