❤️Handmades from my heart❤️

Welcome to Yankee Girl Dry Goods!

My name is Michelle Blanco.  I grew up in western Massachusetts where my grandmothers taught me how to crochet and sew, and to bake the best apple pies!  The name Yankee Girl came from my love of all things Massachusetts.  I love to use antiques and vintage items in everything I create whenever possible. Knowing that the things I create are comprised of objects with a history of their own makes it even more special.  


Please feel free to reach out to me to purchase, with any questions you might have, or even just to say hello; I would love to hear from you!  

You can contact me by email or on Facebook or Instagram

Welcome to my September update!







I immediately fell in love with this fabric when I saw it! My favorite childhood card game as a young girl was Old Maid. This Old Made fabric has several different sewing prints on it and each one makes me smile. The bag is 10 1/2” long by 7” wide. The strap is 22”. Attached to the top of each bag is a tiny scissor charm with orange beads. I think this bag is perfect for a seamstress’s or cross stitcher’s Halloween bag. Kindly tell me which bag you would like. Play Cuckoo, Old Made, Spooky Silk. The names are printed at the top or bottom of each bag. Kindly asking $48.00. Travel Fare is $7.50
I love every single design from Blackbird Designs and I’m so happy I picked this one to stitch for this Halloween! It’s a big one! It is approximately 5” wide x 3” tall. I used a beautiful black printed fabric from my stash on the bottom and sides and some antique burnt orange ric-rac trim. The bone button is an antique button from my Uncle’s thread mill in Fall River, Massachusetts, one of my favorite places to visit when I was a young girl. It is firmly stuffed with sawdust. I added several glass-head pins, and one very special cauldron pin that I purchased specifically for this. Kindly asking $95.00 and $10.00 for travel fare.
I absolutely loved stitching this sweet Christmas bird! The colors are so vibrant, perfect for Christmas. This one is approximately 3.5” across x 3” tall. It is firmly stuffed with fine sawdust to keep your pins and needles sharp. I added several glass-head pins, a beautiful antique glass swirl pin, and a safety pin with a mother of pearl button and some tiny beads. The red ric-rac around the top makes the colors of the stitching pop even more. Kindle asking $75.00 and $10.00 for travel fare.
Fall is my favorite season so I had to create some pumpkins and crows for this update. These sweet pumpkin and crow pinkeeps are made from 100% wool and firmly stuffed with polyfil. I added some beads that spell out the word crow, some glass head pins and three black vintage straight pins. The pumpkin stem is a real stem from pumpkins my kids grew in our garden several years ago. They are approximately 5” tall x 5” wide. I have three of these available. Kindly asking $60.00 and $10.00 for travel fare.
