❤️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, sew, and 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!

Welcome to my June update!







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 $48.00 and $6.50 for travel fare


I had so much fun creating this drum! I used a design by Blackbird Designs for the sides and a pretty deep red flannel fabric for the top and bottom. I added a strawberry to the top that I created with a pretty fabric from my stash, several glass-head pins, a bird charm, and mother of pearl button. It is firmly stuffed with sawdust. It is approximately 2.5” across x 3.5” tall. Kindly asking $65.00 and $6.50 for travel fare.
I think I could get addicted to making these tomatoes! They are made using the softest wools. Each tomato has a handmade tomato pinkeep pin, a mother of pearl button, thimble charm, and a black glass head pin. I created a matching strawberry fob and added a cute pair of scissors to go with them. They come in solid red wool, or red with black checks. Please indicate the color ribbon, cream or blue, and check or solid wool. I have two of each. Please, no orders at this time. The tomato measures approximately 5” x 4”. Kindly asking $54.00 for each set which includes the tomato, the strawberry fob, and scissors. Travel fare is $7.50
I think ditty bags are my favorite thing to make! I’ve made several different versions of this bird bag but this is my favorite so far. The bag is lined with a beautiful red floral print with a 14” long gold strap. I added a bronze safety pin, several mother of pearl buttons and a tiny bronze charm. I added an antique corset button to each side of the bag. It is 7” long x 5” wide. Kindly asking $48.00 and $6.50 for travel fare.
Patriotism and ditty bags go together perfectly! I stitched this bag using motifs from several different designers on a hand-dyed murky blue linen. It is lined with a beautiful black and taupe fabric and backed with a pretty brown fabric. I added a bronze safety pin with several mother of pearl buttons and tiny charm. The bag measures 8” long x 7.5” wide, the strap is approximately 21” long. Kindly asking $48.00 and $6.50 for travel fare.
