introducing 'Uncle George'...

uncle george

This is 'Uncle George' our scarecrow, he is not quite finished yet. We have made him using a simple stick cross and have dressed him in some fetching red cords and a check shirt and stuffed him with straw. His head is made with an old linen pillowcase with a hand stitched nose stuffed with a little wool and teddy bear eyes. The mustache is from a set that you can buy from here. We are still hunting for an old tweed hat and jacket, you know the type with elbow patches? We must have been to over 30 charity shops and car boot sales and the only ones we can find have been really quite expensive ~ when did charity shops get so expensive? They have really caught on to this vintage vibe haven't they? The hunt continues...

  1. I know what you mean about the charity shops. I used to be able to get clothes for dressing up and for costumes (for the children you understand) but it became too expensive. I love the scarecrow. What a great idea.
