Primitive dolls and stitched treasures

Hello and welcome to Yankee Girl Dry Goods!

  My name is Michelle Blanco and I am so very honored to be a part of this wonderful group of artists.  

I have been sewing and creating since I was a very young girl, learning from my Mom and my two Mémères. I cannot remember a time when I did not have a needle, thread, and fabric in my hands.  I love working with all types of fabrics but my passion is working with vintage materials. I have been collecting antiques with my husband for many years and always try to incorporate something vintage in my work. I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoyed creating them for you.

Welcome to my August


Thanks for stopping by.  


This table runner is just perfect for your fall decorating! I used a pattern by Primitive Gatherings for this sweet runner. The background was made using a 100% wool that is a perfect white and beige check fabric. It measures 10.5" wide and 30" long. The pumpkins are also wool and I used three different orange fabrics to create the pumpkin friends. I just love the silly primitively stitched grin on the middle guy’s faces. I used Valdani threads for all of this runner. Kindly asking $68.00 and $7.50 for travel.
I love working with wool; it’s such a soft fabric to work with. This bag is made from a beautiful teal blue wool, with wool pumpkins, and a wool crow appliquéd on. It’s completely lined with a gorgeous rust and black floral print. The bag is 8 1/2” x 6 1/2” and the strap is 20” long. I added a cute silver pumpkin charm and a vintage mother of pearl button, attached with a black safety pin. Kindly asking $52.00 and $7.50 for travel fare.
Wool is one of my favorite fabrics to work with. This sweet crow pincushion is made entirely of wool. The crow is black with black and white stiffened wings. He is proudly perched on a stick. He has a glass pumpkin charm in his beak and the word crow, spelled out in beads is securely attached to the gray wool pumpkin. The pumpkin stem is a real stem that I dried from last year’s Halloween pumpkins. I attached a wire tendril near the stem and added two pins to the pumpkin. It stands approximately 6” tall. Kindly asking $55.00 and $7.50 for travel fare.
I love wearing different necklaces for different seasons! These fall and Halloween necklaces are 1 1/2” across and will hang down approximately 18”. They are made from cotton fabrics with a wool circle surrounding a vintage button. They each have a charm attached to the bottom and a bone ring on the top for the cording. Please indicate which one you would like by the letter next to it. Kindly asking $24.00 and $6.50 for travel fare. *A and D are spoken for
