***CLICK ON IMAGE TO SEE MORE PHOTOS*** This Snowman pillow is worked in split stitch embroidery, using 3 strands of DMC and size 12 Valdani thread. It is sewn onto a cotton blend fabric with soft wintery colored stripes. The sides and backing are 100% wool. I used a soft chenille yarn around the perimeter of the pillow, which roughly measures 7 1/2" x 6 1/2". I tied vintage seam binding on an aged metal snowflake and added it to the top left corner. A fabric, folk art style, signed heart shaped label is sewn to the backside of the pillow. This represents about a week's worth of work, but I sure learned a lot while making it! I am kindly asking 79.00, plus postage for a mailing envelope. Thanks so much for your interest in my handmade items and for visiting PHM today.

**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**..I am offering this heart, punched with spirals that are elevated above the background and a wonderful variegated Valdani thread was used to make this spiraled effect. I hand-sewed a wool backing on and then filled with a cotton filler. It has a vintage look but in a more modern setting, it would look more contemporary in style...very versatile heart style! It measures approximately 4 1/4-4 1/2" tall x 4" wide. I am asking 59.00, plus 3.50 for postage on a mailing envelope. I accept paypal and money orders/cashier's checks.

**CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...I found this adorable antique teddy bear and thought he needed to be holding a heart, so I made him one! I punched this heart using Valdani thread and hand sewed a wool backing on it, using a blanket stitch. The antique bear measures about 9 1/2" tall by 7 1/2" wide with outstretched arms. He has been loved on but is entirely intact, without any rips, no stains, no odors and his features are all sewn on. He is in great shape. I am kindly asking 95.00, plus postage for a mailing envelope. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thank you so much for your visit to PHM today!
