Wynter items I’ve been working on…

Hi Blog Friends,
The following are some items I’ve been making to put in my selling booth/ consign shop. I’m trying to get a variety of items together for Valentines, Winter and Everyday. It’s hard to gauge what will be selling in the coming months.

I received this pattern*Let it snow, snowman n’ mitten, last week from Kim at Old Road Primitives for free! I get her e-newsletter and last week she had a survey, which if you answered her questions she would send a free pattern!! I think he’s just adorable and pretty easy to make.

How about this cutie! It’s another free pattern I received from Sandy at The Olde Country Cupboard. Sandy held a giveaway and after the drawing she offered all the entries a free pattern of their choosing as a gift from her. Sandy is so sweet to have done that. My picture makes him show up whiter than he really is and I added the heart instead of the tree and candy cane so he could stay out for the winter or at least til valentines day. I love that his stick arms are made of fabric. He still needs to be sprinkled with some cinnamon to make him a bit more grungy, as soon as the winds die down.

Some Valentine make-do’s. I used a pattern from Countin Crows Primitives to make these. The one on the left is almost the way the original pattern is, except the original is for a punch needle and I appliqued wool felt for the crow. Then I used the heart shape to make the ones on the right with my own design for the hand stitching's and added wool felt hearts to them. When I purchased the fabric for the heart on the far right, reading Love, the lady cutting the material said,”this print looks like an EKG printout”, I said well how ironic, I plan to make fabric hearts from it! She laughed.
Got many more things to be working on and hope to share soon.
Thanks for stopping by to see what I’ve been working on.
Prim Blessings,

I love the snowman mitten.I had brianna for the day and she saw the little reindeer stick you gave Tom.She said "It's really beautiful" and wanted me to explain how you made it.LoL.I explained I don't sew much but she insisted she did and wanted to make one.We ended up making tissue flowers instead. It's just funny she picked that out.Warm Blessings!~Amy
