Mr. & Mrs. Scarecrow

Pumpkins make me happy!  I don't know if I love pumpkins because they remind me of autumn, or if I love autumn because of all the pumpkins.  Anyway, I've always loved scarecrows that have pumpkins for heads, so I decided to make a pair of scarecrow dolls.  My scarecrows are dressed a  little better than the typical scarecrow I think.  I used a pattern by June Gilbank ( to make the heads, but I messed it up and forgot to crochet in the back loops only.  Oops!  Oh well, I still like how they looked, so I decided to use them anyway.

They can sit on their own, but I had to prop them against my coffee cup to get them to stand for their portraits.  I think her head looks a bit more like an orange instead of a pumpkin, but I can't decide if it's because of the shape or because of the lighter orange yarn that I used for her head.  Well, I still like her either way!   And just because I love her stockings so much, here is a peak up her dress!

Tell me what you guys think!


  1. So Cute!!! I love Autumn and Pumpkins and just all the colors of fall and these are great! I must say the Mrs. is my favorite(probably because of the colors, the dress, and stockings are awesome!)
