**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**..."Heart Song"....This is one of my original designs and I love to use it for Spring décor. This small pillow has been made using mainly Valdani thread and I have hand sewn a piece of 100% wool on the back. It has been stuffed with fabric snippets for a nice, aged feel and weight. The colors used are all very soft, variegated colors in rose, green, yellow and blue and the background has a nice variegated light gray-blue, with several shades of light cream and tan. It measures about 4 1/2" W x nearly 6" L. I am kindly asking 64.00, plus postage for a mailing envelope. I gladly accept paypal and cashier's checks. Please email mommadonnatx@gmail.com to make a purchase. Thank you so very much for your visit today to PHM!
**CLICK IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS**...This is one of my favorite bunny and tulip patterns that I have designed for Spring! The bunny, with tulip in hand, seems to be in a hurry to deliver the flower to a sweetheart! I have used mainly Valdani thread to punch this design and have stuffed the small pillow with fabric snippets. I have hand sewn a backing of 100% wool on the backside and the pillow measures about 5" square. Happy Spring and Blessed Easter....thanks for your visit to PHM!
**...I LOVE old quilt designs, with a particular affinity for any kind of star. So I decided to try a star pattern in a punch needle cupboard hanger. I used a nice teal-blue and brown color theme and used a light cream/antique white background to emphasize the design. I added an old button to the center of the star. I hand sewed a wool backing on and made a custom fabric label. I also added a piece of vintage seam binding to use as a hanger, which is merely pinned on so that it can be removed to use this piece as a mat, if desired. This piece measures about 6"L x 5 1/4"W. Thanks for your interest and support of handmades here at PHM!
***CLICK ON IMAGE FOR MORE PHOTOS***...I have had more requests for cupboard hangers of all styles, so I chose to use the blue bird from my "Heart Song" design to use for a cupboard hanger! I used Valdani thread and sewed on a 100% wool backing. The hanger is made from a piece of vintage seam binding and is totally removable. This piece measures about 5 1/2" L x nearly 4"W... Thanks for your visit today...and hope you come back to see what we have all made next month! Have a very blessed Easter!
