Primitive dolls and stitched treasures

Welcome to Yankee Girl Dry Goods September 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.

This beautiful ditty bag was made with a chocolate brown reproduction coverlet fabric and lined and backed with beautiful French General fabric. I stitched a sweet little bee and attached it to the bag on top of two different blue wools. The bag is approximately 10” long x 5” wide. The straps are 21” long so the entire bag with straps measures 31”. Kindly asking $55.00. Postage is $7.50.
I really enjoy making these civil war era pin-keeps. I just love the fall colors in this beautifully striped muted wool. This one measures 3” tall and 7” across. I added two sweet penny pins, a vintage floral pin and two vintage mother of pearl buttons. Kindly asking $65.00 and $7.50 for postage.
Fall is in the air! Since it’s pumpkin season I created two sets of pumpkin dolls. They measure approximately 7” tall. They are sporting a wool dress and they are each holding a sprig of Sweet Annie. Each has stick arms and hand stitched faces. In the set you will receive one burnt orange doll and one heavily walnut stained doll. Kindly asking $38.00 for one set of two dolls. Shipping is $7.50. I have two sets available.
I’m loving the colors of this season! Browns, creams, and oranges are all such warm and inviting colors. I used all of those warm shades to create this wonderful wall pocket. I cross stitched an angel using a pattern by Country Rustic Primitives and added a pocket made from reproduction fabrics. It is backed by a gorgeous brown civil war era reproduction fabric. It measures 11” long by 7” wide. I stitched a brown ring carved from a nut to the top for hanging. Kindly asking $62.00 shipping is $7.50.
