So an old pair of jeans and shirt were put to good use. I started first by sewing the shirt in the jeans and sewing closed the cuffs and the hems of the jeans except for a small opening.
The next step was rummaging in my sewing box I found some odd large buttons, The gloves were dug out of the garage. The Hessian sacking fabric was left over from when I ran a craft group with those I supported a few years ago with learning difficulties. It was left over from backing a pegged rug I helped them make. Anyone remember them? I well remember helping my Granddad make a wool one and cutting the lengths of wool.. And Rag pegged rugs were in his home from his Mother. In fact I still have one of his home made rugs but its now stored in the loft or else I would have shared its image with you.
The next step was to sew the shape of the head this was attached to the collar and the gloves were sewn on.
“Hi there!!!!! Can’t quiet see who is looking at me yet! It seems my Brain is some old stuffing from some old cushions.” Anyone got a Brain??
“Hi there!!! That’s better at least I can see you now.. “
Buttons sewn, mouth in place and Hat sewn on too,that too was a freebee found in the back of the garage!
Smile for the Camera!
“ Rhubarb!!!, er-hem sorry Cheeeeeeeeesssssse!!!!”
“Well Enough of this Yoga Practice………. “
“I may be smiling but I can’t rest here for too long, I need to find my Brain, and although my legs are filled, I need some extra Stuffing for my body.”
“Has anyone any spare Rags?”
“Oh by the way my name is Herbert! for future reference. When they put me on guard duty!. “
“I hope you will join me soon as I meet the Veggies on the Plot!…..
