Silly Sally with Jack O’ Lantern Balloon


This silly girl is Sally. Sally can’t wait to celebrate Halloween & has even taken to carrying around this Jack 0′ Lantern balloon. I don’t think it’s gonna make Halloween get here any bit sooner, though! Sally is 16″ from head to toe & sits quite lovely on her own. She has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. Her lower torso has been rag-stuffed & bean-filled in order to weight her little bottom. She’s been hand-painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her such a lovely, aged patina. She’s been sealed with a combination of glossy & matte sealers so that she may be lightly dusted after display. Sally’s knees are sewn through making her a great shelf sitter.

Sally’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand. Her hands have been needle-sculpted as well. She sports brown painted gloves. She also sports painted brown boots with tan socks & black & grey laces.

I just love this fabric combo! Sally’s blouse is made of white muslin. It features hand-gathered sleeves & hand-stitching around the neckline and back. It is finished off with tiny green buttons at the neckline. Her apron skirt consists of a black & white polka dot print and a green two-toned floral print. Both are 100% cotton & are guaranteed to delight you. Sally’s hem has been hand-stitched with black thread. Her blouse was treated to a coffee bath for a slightly aged appearance. It was then hand-washed & pressed.


This little fellow is a little more primitive & dull than he appears in this photo. He is attached to sturdy, rusty wire which is wrapped around Sally’s arm & balances at her side. Doesn’t he make you just smile?

Sally’s hair is 100% red mohair. It has been applied with light glue for extra security & needle-felting. It has been styled into a quirky pigtails & tied with black embroidery thread.

Sally is available on Ebay. She will end Sunday night, June 28th at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to view or bid.
