I punched a 4" design of a sweet little chick with a flower and framed it with a herringbone tweed wool. Punching was done with Valdani threads. It is backed with the same wool as the front. Stuffed with polyfill and wool snips. Signed and dated on the back. The finished egg measure 6" by 4" and can be used tucked on a shelf for laying in a basket. Comes from a smoke and pet free home. Pail not included. Shipping is $6.50


I love finding these old antique serving spoons to use with a punch needle design. It is attached with a magnet so as not to ruin the value of the spoon. I punched this rabbit and flower with Valdani threads and backed it with wool. Notice his fuzzy little tail popping out from the body! The spoon measures 13" and the punch is almost 4" long and 2 1/4" wide. Signed and dated. Comes from a smoke and pet free home. Shipping is $6.50.


A sweet little 4" wool pocket with a 3" punched design. This is a smaller version of the pattern I have in the most recent Punch Needle & Primitive Stitchers magazine. Punched with Valdani threads in black/brown, mustard, red and off white. The pocket has a rusted wire hanger and comes filled with dried flax and a cute little bee with wire wings. Comes from a smoke and pet free home. Shipping is $6.00.


A little 3" paper mache box pinkeep. A simple little tulip punched with Valdani threads mounted on the top of the box. The rim of the lid is stained and the box is covered with a nice blue aged cotton fabric. The pinkeep mounted on the inside is created with a brown aged fabric and stuffed with polyfil. Shipping is $6.50
I'm calling this a "Seed Bag" because as I was antiquing a few weeks ago I stumbled upon this wonderful little bag hanging on the wall. I loved the shape of it and instantly thought it would make a great finish for an embroidery or cross stitch design! They had it labeled "seed bag" with a ? mark! It sounded like a logical guess to me! I did create a blog post showing the bag I purchased for the inspiration which you can find here..... I created the first one using walnut stained osnaburg. I brought out the old embroidery stitches to create a heart with some flowers in the center on the flap and added some sheep and willow tree at the bottom of the bag. I used Valdani threads and the following embroidery stitches, french knots, lazy dazy stitch, stem stitch, satin stitch and a chain stitch and bullion stitch. I am making a pattern so if you like to create your own handmades be on the look out for it! Click on the picture to see close up shots of the hand stitching. Comes from a smoke and pet free home. Shipping is $4.00
