Do you remember the phrase, "If I only had a brain"? It sing it quite frequently! They're from the lips of my favorite Wizard of Oz character, the scarecrow. I remember being so scared when the flying monkeys came on the seen. Then, the brave scarecrow would come to the rescue. I love to watch that move to this day.
Hope you're not getting tired of my Top Note Die creations. I seem to be looking for characters that haven't been posted anywhere. If they are, I'm not finding them. So here's one for your Top Note library. He's probably the easiest of all so far.
I showed my creation to my husband (he's my jury) before I put the little bird on his hat to see if he knew what it was. He wasn't quite sure. I had a button where the bird is now. I quick changed the button out for the little bird and showed him again. Then, he got it. Whew!
When drawing the Faux Stitching, don't try to be perfect. Crooked lines add to the "Home Spun" feel of the scarecrow. After all, he should look a little tattered and torn. In fact, my husband thinks this little guy is far too happy. Hmmm, I seem to remember the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz as being a very happy fellow even if he did sing "If I only had a brain" all the time.
