Winter Cottage

Primitive handmade goods and hooked rugs.

Welcome to June! Have fun browsing!

In years past, women were very industrious when creating toys for their children. Sock animals came out of that tradition of using what you had. I'm happy to offer my version of a sock cat stuffed with wool batting. The cat's face, heart and stripes have been sewn on by hand. A little collar was made from aged cotton twill tape. The cat body is made from 100% cotton sock fabric with a tight fine weave like a fancy knee sock. I used to use this fabric to make reproduction socks when I was an active living historian for my wardrobe. The cat measures almost 8" high and 3 1/2" inches wide. The tail measures 4" long. To help add to the primitive worn look, I've aged the fabric and added some "mending stitches". The cat is very huggable and is safe for child's play. The asking price includes shipping. $35

Strawberries are in season and the chickens know it! I created this design as a memory of the berries lost to quick beaks on our homestead. The fabrics are primly stitched and free hand cross stitches are scattered about to fill in the design. The pillow measures 11" x 7" and is stuffed with wool batting. A red calico is used for the pillow back. The pillow is signed on the back. The asking price includes shipping. $48

Six strawberries in red, white, and blue for your summer decorating. Each berry is made from cotton with a cotton stem and stuffed with wool batting. The berries range from 41/2" - 3" in length and could be used for a summer pincushion as well as a bowl filler. I included a blue strawberry so you could be patriotic. $45 for six berries which includes shipping. You are purchasing group "A". Group "B" is in another listing.
