We’re off to see the Wizard….

I first made the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz books. When done, he asked for Dorothy, and when she was done, they both asked for the Tin Man. All were adapted from an Ike Putney pattern. It was challenging and fun figuring out how to create them. 14" - 18"

Bad Mary

She is a depiction of the witch from "Hansel and Gretal" She lives in
the gingerbread house and lures in unsuspecting children. I suspect
this particular character has also links to "Baba Inga" in her house
on stilts of chicken legs, surrounded by a fence of bones and
concealing the entrance to the underworld. The pattern is all original.
