“Grandpa, What’s A Polka?” & Details

Wisp of Hair

Here are some close-up details of “Grandpa, What’s A Polka?” wall hanging.

This is a picture of the accordian player’s hair.  You can see a little piece of fabric hanging down from the hair line.  This is double sided and sewn into the hairline to create a wisp of hair and also give some break up to the hair line so that the hair line does not look so straight.

The 3-D items and pieces of “de resistance” are the hands.  They have been meticulously drafted, sewn together, turned inside out, details sewn onto them, stuffed and then sewn into the seams of the area to where they are attached.
