trick or treat veggie boy...

trick or treat veggie boy

i was having so much fun making this veggie boy this afternoon i could hardly stop to make dinner~
when i could finally hear my teenage sons stomach growling from the hall i did go up however... :)
me and tiny were in the studio for a while, she had some great suggestions for the ruffles and buttons.
the hand dyed orange ribbon was from an experiment with an ugly peach silk and rayon ribbon and some left over easter egg dye.  i nearly threw it out because it did not turn out how i had planned and now here it is looking darling.  isn't that the way it goes.

1950s vintage cake topper pumpkin pail
 i had a little vintage 1950s pumkin cake topper on my desk and she suggested i cut off the pick part and make a trick or treat pumpkin.  with the help of some wire cutters and a dremel drill it worked!

the tiny vintage buttons are sewn with black thread and then glued in place. 8 inches tall and with a sugary grin, he is already in the shop if you are shopping for halloween treats today.
happy monday,
