**CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...This was a challenging and fun new design of mine to complete! The Spring Bunny Pull-Toy design is punched in Valdani and a bit of DMC thread. I made a banner of 100% wool and sewed the punched piece onto it, as well as a top and bottom decorative strip of wool. Vintage buttons were added to enhance the bottom border. The backside of the banner has an appliqued wool carrot and a fabric label (see additional photo). There is a small, removable wooden dowel in the top casing, in case you want to remove it to lay the banner on a table or book, etc. The wool strap hanger is attached with primitive, rusty pins and is also removable. Blanket stitching is used throughout this unique piece. The banner measures about 9" x 7 3/4". I am kindly asking 110.00, plus a small amount for postage. I gladly accept paypal or personal checks...please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thanks so much for visiting PHM today!

**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...I have made two of my flower/vase designs into small pillows to offer tonight....the LEFT one ( approx. 8" x 7") has a medium yellow/green wool fabric backing with a barn red wool oval encircling the punched design of a tulip and stylized daisies in a vase. The RIGHT one (6 3/4" square) is sewn onto a lighter gray-green wool fabric. I outlined the design on the right using a few rows of the darker Valdani thread. I used a blanket stitch to sew the red wool oval and the punched pieces onto the pillow. Both pillows are stuffed with a bit of polyfil and snippets of fabric. I have handrawn a fabric label and sewed it onto each pillow backing. I am kindly asking 78.00 each, plus a small amount for mailing in a bubble envelope. I gladly accept paypal or personal check. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase.
