"GEDALYA THE MAGICIAN"
This needle felted figure was made for a challenge.
For this Mystery Challenge, we had to use 1 small
rubber chicken and 1 tin can. The following items
had to be visible: 3 buttons: 1 red, 1 character and
1 – one inch or larger. We had to use 1 zipper, any
size, any color; 3 or more feathers and 1 clothes
pin, any shape. The challenge was sponsored by
the Las Vegas Silver Doll-ers doll club.
Since I love to needle felt, I made a magician. His
bow tie is a clothes pin, his jacket has a zipper down
the front. He is holding a yo yo of large buttons. His
pockets have a red button and a fancy button on it.
The chicken sits in a magician’s hat which is filled
I named him Gedalya after my oldest grandson.
He received two awards: 1st for THE BEST USES
2nd for CUTEST
