Pumpkin Sitter

I have fallen in love with those sweet little sitters that you can find in all the mail order gift catalogs and gift shops. But I honestly can't see paying for them with so many other items in our need to buy queue.
But with a little air dry clay, acrylic craft paint( such as Plaid craft paint), and some embroidery thread we can cook up a cute little primitive sitter.
Above is the clay after my initial sculpting? Don't let the word sculpt scare you. We all did it with Play-doh! It's the same thing. Slightly messier though. Don't forget to think of where you would string his legs and arms. You'll want to go ahead and poke those holes in his legs and arms and so on.

Let him dry for a day and then I'll be back with further directions.
