I wasn't sure if it would work...
How it would look....

Here is WARTS!

 Created from my grungy muslin, rag and fiber fill stuffed.. painted orange, sanded, grungy up again, and sanded.... BUT, I added some "warts" on him!  LOVE IT!  So he is the first one of his kind!  I am sure there will be more?
 Wool for his nose, vintage buttons for eyes... pinched/stitched mouth that I painted white, then black lines for his "teeth"... grungy up, and sanded his mouth too!
 What do you think?  Would you like to give him a home?  He is about 29" around... I have been playing around with my patterns some too... trying to change things up... so this is the first one of this shape for this year... He is on the taller side.  About 10-11" tall without his stem, about 13-14" with the stem.
Kindly asking $40.50 and travel fare for Warts....

Oh happy Jack!  He is a new pattern shape for this season too... he is plump and round.  he is a happy guy, ready for the season!  Created from the same grungy muslin as WARTS.  He has a long wicked nose that is about 5" long.  Hand-stitched mouth and eyes, with little beads for his pupil's.

 Each has their own personality with hand-stitched faces.  to finish them off, each has a old textile bobbin, so they can be tucked anywhere for the season.
