Humpty Dumpty -no fall down

Last night i just couldn't sleep. I awoke having dreamt about making a Humpty so so that was the end of any shut-eye.

This miniature humpty is made in old wool, beige for the egg shape and burnt orange for the coat, trimmed with tiny vintage bows, chenille stem for the legs which I painted in stripes and painted on boots. His eyes are two tiny buttons, painted mouth and the entire piece aged with burnt umber.

He sits perfectly or would be great with a thread attached for hanging on an Easter tree.
