and Watermelon Mouse Friend ~ e-pattern
Appalachian folk artist
Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old
Olde Farmer Cat and his sweet friend the watermelon mouse are made
extremely primitive. Summer has come down on the farm and
Olde Farmer Cat along with his friend Watermelon Mouse are off to
hoe the garden. The Olde Watermelon Mouse catches a ride
from Olde Farmer Cat, who is holding him in his mouth by his tail.
Olde Farmer Cat is a big ol' feller with a pinch stitched mouth
and nose. His eyes are antique buttons. He wears an
olde worn hat with his ears poking through. His shirt is
brown wool. His pants are tied up around his waist with a
patch on the knee that has been sewn on. He wears an olde
chocolate and cream scarf around his neck, made from antique
The sweet little Watermelon Mouse is made to resemble a slice of
watermelon. He has seeds sewn on its body, stick legs, beads
for eyes, and whiskers. His tail is a curly rusty wire that
goes through the cat's mouth and curls around at the tip.
You will love Farmer Cat and Watermelon Mouse for your primitive
Olde Farmer Cat measures approximately 22½" tall when
completed as shown.
God bless you.
