We love the annual ritual of creating a scarecrow for the fair each year. Once we made a baseball player; another time, a pirate. This year we went for a traditional approach. Does he scare you?
The clothes came out of the dress up box; his head is an old pillowcase. Princess #2 cut the pieces out of felt for the face and I stitched them on. Horsey Girl's old boot were perfect for the job since they had big holes in the bottom already.
We stuffed him down with plenty of real hay, and I sewed an old Halloween crow to his arm for the final touch.
Later last week, the results spoke for themselves. First prize!
Good family fun.
