(Now, I'm not scolding those of you who have already started decking the halls. If that's your thing, great.)
Today I'm going to show you a couple of fun little characters I created just for fall. I had such a good time making my funny Jacks for Halloween, I thought to myself, "Why not an autumn pumpkin man? Pumpkins are not just for Halloween!" And here is what happened when I listened to that voice in my head:
He has prominent facial features accented with lovely brown eyes. The hat is hand-sewn from wool felt and trimmed with chenille and a autumn-colored ribbon. He holds a garland of greenery and sunflowers.
Also sculpted with a prominent nose and big brown eyes, he features a similar hat adorned with a sunflower, and carries a bouquet of autumn bounty. Both pieces have golden yellow and green stripes on their arms and legs, green mittens trimmed with chenille and brown boots.
I'm really pleased with how these two autumn Jacks turned out. I love the colors of fall so much! You can find both of these adorable fellows in my etsy shop, A Piece of Lisa.
