"3 Bags Full"

Trying something a bit different for "Soft in the Head" this month, a centerpiece, or a mantel piece. This looks wonderful on my table with the sheep and the tin wagon full of wool and a little mouse.

The sheep are made using muslin, paint and real raw sheep wool. The wool is needle felted on the sheep and some of the body is left plain or has been painted. Silk ribbon has been used for the reins.

The wagon is pre-made. It is a metal mini wagon filled with three handmade cotton fabric bags with polyfil and raw wool inside. The little mouse sitting inside the wagon is made using wool, paint and glass eyes. Cotton and silk ribbons have been used for accents. This is a great piece that can be left out all year long if you want, not really too seasonal.

Measurements: "3 Bags Full" measures 24" long, 8" tall.

"3 Bags Full" is an original Soft in the Head design
by P.K. Gracia and will come signed and dated.

Like all "Soft in the Head" characters "3 Bags Full" is not a toy for
children under 12, but for collectors and decoration only.

"3 Bags Full" is $145.00 plus $12.00 Priority Shipping in the continental U.S. SOLD!

"Mrs. Quackery, Educator"

I LOVE DUCKS! If I could just sit around and make ducks I would...I even taught a class on how to make ducks similar to this one.

When we lived in Vermont my biggest joy was having a pond in my backyard that was always filled with geese or ducks. I remember this one female mallard that would stand by the pond with all her ducklings surrounding her and it looked as though she was teaching them the art of bug eating or something. She became a temporary resident so I named her.

Mrs. Quackery is made using 100% mohair. Her face is felted and stitched with clay accents and glass eyes. She has a top knot of raw wool for hair. Her coat is 100% wool with a muslin blouse. The blouse has tin buttons, silk and rayon rosette. Her arms are pose-able. She is holding a carved wooden apple. Her feet are clay and she is attached to a wood base.

Measurements: "Mrs. Quackery", the little duck, stands 10" tall
    and is mounted on a wood base.
