~ Baby Squirrel's First Summer Acorn ~One Of A Kind Ensemble ~ Squirrel On Oak Leaf Pin Cushion With Acorn Emery
A Summer Sewing Creation for 2013by Janie Comito
The baby squirrels have been noisy in their nests up in the big trees in Janie's neighborhood. The ones in her back garden tree have been competing with the crow babies to see who can make the most noise. They'll soon be appearing in the garden to begin squirreling around for the summer.
~ Baby Squirrel's First Summer Acorn ~ is an ensemble summer pin cushion creation inspired by the annual arrival of juvenile squirrels. Janie's hand sewn miniature squirrel tops a gusseted, ultra suede pin cushion decorated with dark green oak leaves and vintage tinted cut steel beads. Baby Squirrel is hand sewn from dense pile upholstery velvet, he sits 1 3/4" tall and is wire armatured with three way jointed (head and arms) and firmly stuffed with wool. His fur is hand detailed (tinted) to give him realistic character. The ears are upholstery velvet bonded to ultra suede; his eyes are black onyx beads. The tail is mohair plush. Baby Squirrel is sewn firmly to the pin cushion base. The pin cushion measures 2 1/2" wide x 1 3/4" tall; it is firmly filled with hand carded wool roving and chopped wool felt. The green velvet acorn emery measures 1" long and is sized for the little squirrel to hold snuggly. Pin cushion and squirrel combined are 3 1/4" tall.
