I just finished putting the final touches on this guy. I will be listing him soon.
I haven't picked a name yet. I would welcome any ideas.
He is definitely a winsome little guy.
He is made from recycled denim jeans, with shoe button eyes and a hand stitched nose. I shaded his eyes and around his nose.
I knitted a sweater for him, then spent hours trying to find the right buttons. I sewed on buttons two times, then removed them, before deciding to use black pom-poms.
I raided all my scrap drawers and boxes to find things for his collection of things to hang from his belt and sweater. He is a collector of odd things he likes or might need.
Who can know what use he might have for some of the things he carries around with him. He is a strange, wonderful sprite.
It took me hours and much back and forth before deciding on which things to give him for his collection.
I knitted his hat from blue wool yarn from Rowan. I used the pattern from "Irresistible Gifts to Knit" by Alan Dart. It is the hat for his Yuletide Gnomes, which I modified. I added the inner workings of a wristwatch along with black pom-poms and a few trinkets.
And to finish him off, I gave him red striped socks, with some hasty darning (meant to be charming) for his little bear feet.
Please help me name him, by leaving any suggestions you might have.
