Egg Boy #36: Marbleguts the First [Needle-felted, Weighted, Removable Egg White Ruff]
he sees everything and...
some of what he sees makes him happy
some of what he sees makes him sad
and all of what he sees makes him tearful
for he's a sentimental melancholy lad
The first Needle-Felted Egg Boy Clown made in 2021!
Marbleguts the First is 5 inches tall and unsuccessfully holds back tears of long-held sorrow.
The previous Egg Boy design has been slightly reworked to include
- An Increase in Size (larger than previous Egg Boys)
- A Belly Full of Marbles (for weight)
A Removable Ruff (for he looks ridiculous without it on)
Marbleguts the First's body is solidly assembled from a core of wool batting with an outer layer of Egg Yolk Yellow Merino Wool, with a soft and squishy Egg White Ruff of white Merino wool roving. His tears and eyes are Merino as well, with Red Corriedale for the nose and pom-poms.
Care and Keeping:
Needle-felted works are very sturdy in some ways, but quite delicate in others! Please read on to find out how to keep your new piece in the best condition possible.
Spot clean only
Washing machines will cause irreparable change to the fibers.
Keep away from pets!
Many a good Egg Boy has been mailed in for repairs after being snagged by a dog or cat.
Keep away from backpacks, dirt, etc
While it looks like a toy, this is a soft sculpture and is not meant to be excessively handled.
Keep away from small children!
Rough play will fuzz up the fibers, and the marbles inside could present a choking hazard if released.
