Eat Your Carrots

Cybil and Charlie have been busy working in the garden. Just look at the carrots they've dug up!

Cybil measures 22" tall. Made from aged osnaburg, she features lidded eyes, a stitched nose, and whiskers. Cybil's green homespun dress is embellished with a vintage button and rick rack. I sewed a muslin badge to her bodice. The badge is backed with wool felt and trimmed with vintage seam binding. It reads: Carrots for Sale.

Cybil's straw hat is trimmed with seam binding, a miniature shovel and an itsy~bitsy basket.

Charlie is made from aged osnaburg, too. He features lidded eyes, a stitched nose, and whiskers. I tied vintage seam binding into a bow around his neck. Charlie is tucked in a little tin watering can! He holds a sculpted carrot.

Cybil and Charlie will arrive at your home~sweet~home with a basket of 9 carrots. The sculpted carrots have been painted and aged for timeworn appeal. I tied a wooden carrot to the front of the vintage basket with jute twine. It, too, has been painted and aged.
