Primitive dolls and stitched treasures

Welcome to Yankee Girl Dry Goods 

  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 really wanted to “think spring” but Mother Nature had other plans and gifted us with 8” of snow! This month I decided to make these sweet Snow Girls to go along with our crazy weather we’ve been having. They were made using a pattern by Woodland Primitives called Tilley & Lucy Simplewitch that I changed a little and made into snowgirls instead of witches. They are 18” long and can sit propped up or in a chair. I used vintage shoe buttons for their eyes. Their scarves and hats are made from wool and are not removable. They are both sporting pretty light green cotton dresses and muslin pantaloons. Kindly asking $45.00. Shipping is $8.50. Please indicate if you would like the doll with the brown hat and scarf or the doll with the red hat and scarf. Click on the picture to see additional photos.

I started this sweet pinkeep before Mother Nature surprised us! The sweet yellow bird and pink flower are made of 100% wool. The black and cream tuffet was made using a reproduction coverlet fabric. I added an old cream button from my collection and stitched some tiny French knots around the flower petals. The tuffet is firmly packed with pine shavings and sits in an antique metal strainer. It is removable from the strainer. It is 4” x 7”. Kindly asking $37.00 and $6.50 shipping. Click on picture to see additional image.
