Primitive UNCLE SAM

I’m going back to one of my favorite subjects to create is Uncle Sam! I love using all of the Patriotic fabrics and this time I’ve added some needle punching for his USA banner. Uncle Sam stands about 20 ½” tall to the top of his hat. I used osnaberg for his body. He has needle sculpted and painted facial features. His hair, beard and mustache are sheep’s wool sewn in place.

His coat is a suede type of fabric and all of the other fabrics are quilt shop quality cotton fabrics. He holds a USA pennant banner that I needle punched and backed with wool. Uncle Sam is mounted on a sturdy painted wood base. His coat, hat and scarf are made from quality wool and trimmed in the same fabric as his trousers.

"Primitive UNCLE SAM" is an original, one-of-a-kind design and will come to you signed and dated by me.
