Primitive dolls and stitched treasures

Welcome to Yankee Girl Dry Goods June update.

  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 grandmother. I cannot remember a time when I did not have a needle 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.

I thought it would be so much fun making a pinkeep out of a chicken feeder! This time I made several! I love having little spaces to hold extras along with my pins. For this pinkeep I used my favorite green fabric with tiny black flowers. The center pincushion is packed tightly with wool. I sewed small glass buttons all around the pincushion and added a small safety pin and a tiny heart charm along with two glass head pins. These are perfect to hold extra scissors, thread, buttons, even chocolate! Who doesn’t need a snack or two when stitching? I am including this cute little pair of stork scissors with the pinkeep. Kindly asking $32.00 and $5.50 for shipping.

For this pinkeep I used another really sweet alphabet fabric from French General. The background is aged red with tiny blue flowers. The center pincushion is packed tightly with wool. I added a blue wool flower to this one and added red glass-head pins to each petal and a white vintage button to the center. These are perfect to hold extra scissors, thread, buttons, even chocolate!

***SOLD Thank you I love anything that is patriotic! This 1776 hornbook was made using a pattern by Threadwork Primitives called Patriotic Pine. I used hand-dyed linen and threads and pretty, brown, reproduction civil war fabric for the bottom pinkeep. It is approximately 8” tall and 6” wide. I painted the board black, sanded it and then painted it a wonderful barn red to add to its primitive look; It was then sanded and waxed to make it smooth. I am asking $48.00 plus $7.50 for travel.

I love the blues I chose for this ditty bag, perfect for summer holidays! The bag is 8” long x 6” wide with an 18” long strap. I added a sweet, tiny, velvet strawberry that has been stuffed with wool and topped with a green wool cap and vintage mother of pearl button. The bag is fully lined with a gorgeous colonial blue reproduction fabric and backed with a pretty tan fabric. Kindly asking $56.00 shipping is on me.
