Primitive Folk Art soft sculpture uncle sam doll on tricycle

This is how Uncle Sam would look riding a tricycle, isn't it? His legs and arms are wired with fairly heavy wire so he can maintain that awkward pointy elbow and knee look.

I had the tricycle and thought I could use it to make a really different, wonderful doll. The idea for Sam woke me up at 5:00 one morning and I started it right away.

He's attached (almost invisibly) to the tricycle with wire and sewing thread. I drilled tiny holes through the seat and the bottoms of the handle grips. His feet are stitched to the pedals.

You"ll find him in my Etsy shoppe, Lucy's Lazy Dayz Folk Art
