Jelly Legs Jim the Mushroom & Petey the Parrot






Ahoy me Hearties, this is Jelly Legs Jim and his scur'y mate Petey Parrot. They be like most Piratey folk, they be huntin' for Booty for 100 hundred years.

Avast ye, they been lookin' in all the wrong places such as the Dead Sea. Once, Jelly Legs Jim lost his eye in a pillow fight with a gigantic octupus in that very Sea. Shiver me timbers! Just kiddin', not really but he likes t' pretend that he did (the pillow fightin'twas for real) Savvy?

Unlike most parrots, Petey does not like t'talk or repeat thin's. He's happiest collectin' shiny seashells and sittin' on Jelly Legs Jim's shoulder. Which Suits Jelly Legs Jim just fine, for e'ery pirate must have a loyal parrot by his side.

Legend goes that Jelly Legs Jim is feared by all, for he can tickle you t'the depths o'the earths!

I had a ton of fun making this guy. I made him for the "Handmade Kids Challenge" on etsy- wish me luck! Check out my blog for more info :)

oh thank you so much everyone!!!! it was so funny too, i'd never would've thought to make a pirate mushroom, but then when i had the fabric put together and the shapes all cut out... the whole vision came together. i think i'll make a few more "character" mushrooms- they are fun!!!
