I am offering a fun, painted and combed, small hornbook with a punched jack-o-lantern on the front. This is a sweet little piece of Halloween décor that could be tucked into so many small spaces!!

I am offering this punch needle pumpkin that I have attached to some antique ticking fabric. The washed and clean ticking is nearly 65 years old and is still so sturdy and strong...they don't make it like this anymore!! There are great marks and tiny frayed holes that add so much to the primitive look of the bag. I hand sewed some 100% orange/black plaid wool to the back and used some of same wool fabric to make a hanger (see additional photo). I will include a strip of ticking if you would prefer that fabric be used for the handle instead. The pumpkin was made using Valdani thread...and the bag is stuffed with some crinkle cut brown paper. This would look awesome hanging on a cupboard door! The bag measures about 6" x 6 1/2" and I am kindly asking 69.00, plus postage for this item. I gladly accept paypal or cashier's checks.. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thanks for your visit...have a great day!

The hornbook measures about 8 1/2" x 4 1/8" and I am kindly asking 79.00, plus postage for this item. I gladly accept paypal and cashier's checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Have a great day and thanks for your visit!

These punch needle owls were made using a pattern purchased from Cathy Sowers of Four Ewe Farm. They were punched using Valdani thread and a tiny bit of DMC.... I have hand sewn wool onto the back of each owl and they are lightly stuffed to maintain their shape. Each measures nearly 5" long and would look amazing on a Halloween tree. Each owl has a wire hanger sewn onto the back. I am kindly asking 25.00 each, plus postage for a mailing envelope. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. I gladly accept paypal or cashier's checks. Thanks for your visit...Fall is just around the corner!!
