It’s been my dream for such a long time to make a Humpty Dumpty. I finally decided now is the time. I started him about TWO months ago, and the basic egg was done and sculpted in felt for a while as I tried to come up with the best way to do his hands and outfit. It was a challenge, but I’m pretty happy with him.

He has all wool felted egg, face, legs and arms/hands. His shoes were store-bought (!). I used Irish linen for his shirt, all hand sewn, and an amazing rayon velvet in royal blue for his short pants.  He has 3 gold buttons, and a very happy smile. As he sits here on my piano, he almost looks like he will start talking to me.

Here he is, moving backward in time:
