Welcome to my January update!







I love this saying so much! This sweet design by Needlework Press was so fun to stitch. It measures approximately 9” x 5”. I added vintage trim and burgundy cording to the finished piece. The board was purchased from Kathy Makers of Primitive Homespuns. Kindly asking $55.00 and $7.50 for travel.
I love making ditty bags and pockets! This sweet bag was made using a gorgeous civil war reproduction fabric for the outside and a contrasting civil war reproduction fabric for the lining. I added a sweet wool flower with a Mother of Pearl button for the center. It is approximately 9 1/2” long x 7” wide. The straps are 16” long. Kindly asking $42.00 and $4.50 for travel fare.
I love making drum pinkeeps and this tiny one was no exception. The design is by Blackbird Designs called Vintage Pincushion that I adapted and made into a drum. It’s tiny, only 2 3/4” tall x 2” wide. I aged the drum to make it look old and hand stitched chenille trim around the top and bottom. I added an antique glass swirl pin and two antique mother of pearl buttons. I also created a matching wool strawberry scissor fob and added a tiny pair of scissors. Kindly asking $65 and $8.00 for travel fare.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I love doing wool appliqué so I couldn’t resist creating this special ditty bag for Valentine’s Day. It is made from 100% wool and the lining is a soft cotton flannel. The bag is 6 1/2” long, the strap is 14”. I added a reproduction antique key to a bronze safety pin that can be removed. Kindly asking $42.00 and $6.50 for travel fare.
Love is in the air at Yankee Girl! This is such a sweet, fun, table mat! I loved designing and creating this one for you. It is all hand-stitched using 100% wool fabrics for the top and appliqués. The back is a beautiful red and black paisley print cotton fabric. It is approximately 11 1/2 “ square. Kindly asking $62.00. Shipping is $4.50 I hope you have a ***Sparkling*** Valentine’s Day!
