Hand hooked, punched and stitched primitive wares! Wooden wares too!
I stitched one of Robin's doodles to hang from a vintage slaw cutter! The stitching measures 9" x 7" which I used a hand-dyed muslin for the background. The stitching is done with Valdani Three Strand floss. The flowers are stitched with french knots and a weaving stitch. I used stem stitch, back stitch and chain stitch on everything else. It is backed with a blue reproduction Civil war fabric. I attached a hanger to the back top corners so it would hang on the slaw cutter. Now you can change it out for every season it you chose to do so. The box makes the perfect little shelf and I have some small nails in the sliding groove to keep in from sliding off. The slaw cutter is 24" x 9" and the box where you would lay the head of cabbage measures 7 1/2 x 6 x 3 inches. The markings on the back read:872, T & D Special Sanitary, the Patent #, Rucker & Dorsey Mfg Co, Indianapolis, Ind USA . Shipping is included in the price!
A simple little punched design I call "Sunny DayI"! It is punched with Valdani threads and measures 2" x 3" which I then attached it to a piece of black wool which measures 4 1/2 " x 3 1/2". The frame size is 6 1/2" x 4 1/2" and I painted it black, sanded and stained for a distressed look. .It can lean up in a cupboard or hang with the sawtooth hanger on the back. Shipping included in the price.
These antique veggie slicers always catch my eye in antique stores! They make the perfect little hanger for finished handwork! This on has a cross stitched design that I used from another designer and I have misplaced the chart and can't remember who designed it! If you know please let me know so I can give them credit! The finished stitched piece measures 3 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, the veggie slicer measures 12 x 5 inches and has a very faint trademark stamp on the front handle. T&D Manufacturing Co with a swan. Shipping is included in the price.
One can never have enough pinkeeps! I made this using my own design called sunflower bee sewing clamp. The little bee on top was punched using Valdani threads and has little rusted wire antennae. The sunflower measures 4" and made from a dark olive green wool with petals in a lovely mustard wool. I added lots of black headed pins. Clamp to a table or a shelf. Shipping is included in the price.
I love making these sewing boxes! This is one Jeff makes measuring 8 1/2" x 5" x 4" and painted Tinderbox Brown, stained and distressed.. On the lid I created a pincushion with hand embroidery that says My Sewing Box with a needle and thread and a wool appliqued heart and flower. The inside and bottom of the box is stained and ready to fill with your sewing supplies. You will receive the little 4" vintage quilt pinkeep also. This is one of the pinkeeps my dear sweet mom had started. The side not showing is a piece of the same quilt and is very tattered and torn. Shipping is included in the price.
