May I offer....
WHEN DID I MAKE: Holiday 2017
ITEM: A little more labor intensive than my other offerings - here's another Halloween ornament. I fashioned the body of this little Pumpkin Man out of chenille and a copy of a vintage Beistle die cut. The dapper fellow carries a Trick or Treat bag filled with candy. The coloring of the gent is beige and black, all the better to match the face. I added a gold thread so the ornament can be hung anywhere in the house.
CONDITION: Pretty darn nice I must say.
SIZE: About 4-1/8" x 2-5/8" wide.
FINAL COMMENTS: Part of a very limited series I am making - as most people know, the best chenille is no longer made in the United States nor in Japan. The chenille currently available is from China I believe and is coarse, not soft as in the past. This ornament has been made with chenille I hoarded from the 1980s and through the 1990s - once it is gone, it is gone.
