Primitive Americana Donkey
Primitive Americana Donkey
#AMD Primitive Americana Donkey

Add old-time charm to your Independence Day celebrations with this adorable Americana donkey. He will be perfect on top of your cupboards, nestled among flags and banners along with berries and old metal stars! 

I've created my own primitive version of these two American symbols by adapting a vintage Leisure Arts pattern. Separately or as a pair, these will make a really unique and eye-catching addition to your Americana decor or Independence Day celebrations!

My patriotic primitive Americana donkey has been sewn from heavily coffee-stained blue mattress ticking and firmly stuffed. I have sewn the legs onto the body (the legs move slightly for posing) and added dark buttons for accent. 

The donkey's ears have been sewn on, there are black beads for it's eyes and his mane and tail are made from jute which are sewn onto it's body.

I've added a collar made of rusty wire and have added 3 prim salt dough stars (2 dark blue, 1 white) which dangle from the collar. Additionally, there is a handwritten coffee dyed tag which reads "America" hanging from the collar.

In the donkey's hand I have placed a handmade stars and stripes pennant which has been coffee-stained and then stiffened to look wavy. The pennant is made from adark red stripe material (may differ slightly from what is in photo) with a square of navy blue which has a rusty 1 inch star on it. I've stitched around the pennant with black thread and attached it to a stick. The flag is stiff to hold the wave shapes but does hang a bit downwards to add an "old" feel to the donkey.

He measures approximately 9 inches (22.86 cm) tall --- 6 inches (15.24 cm) front to back and 5 inches (12.70 cm) thick. The pennant is approximately 7 inches (17.78 cm) long.

MADE WHEN ORDERED. Only a small limited number of these primitive Americana donkeys and elephants will be made in the upcoming 2018 year. Please allow 14+ days for me to handcraft your donkey and get him shipped to you.

This listing is for the Americana donkey only.
