Good Monday to y’all,
Hope you had a great weekend!
Friday I told you I was going junkin. Well I hit a couple of yard sales, stopped at a few thrift shops and notta! Nothing said take me home. Oh well, I had a good time getting out and about anyway.
So I came home and made some more pumpkins.
These sweet primitive folk art pumpkin dolls are a design by Sweetpea Primitives. The pattern is in one of the Mercantile Gatherings issues. They would look so sweet sitting amongst a fall display. I rag stuffed her body to give her a weighted feel, and used tiny thin twigs wired together for her arms. I don’t have any sweet annie yet, so I went to the corn field and picked the dried tassels from the top of the corn stalks and tucked them in the front bow. Very prim looking.
I love these pumpkin guys with crows! This is another pattern by Kentucky Primitives. His pumpkin body is rag and polyfil stuffed to give him a lumpy feel. I used shredded coco liner for his hair and honeysuckle for his arms. I did not like the stick legs suggested in the pattern so I made legs from muslin and stained them green. I think he’s easier to display and won’t scratch any surfaces with his legs.
Here’s my version of witch boots. I made many of these last year and sold very well. Hoping there a hit again this year.
And I finally made the flag bowl fillers Melissa!
Melissa, from Libbie’s Home blogspot gave away some of her flag prints and I was one of the lucky people to receive two of them. I told her I would use them to make me a flag bowl filler~ I love them! Thank you so much Melissa!
Last night I started tracing out a bunch of bowl fillers and fall dolls, so that’s what I’ll be up to this week.
I’m thinking it’s about time for another Prim Craft giveaway, so be on the lookout for that announcement! It’s going to be a fall theme. Not sure what it’ll be and I may even keep it a secret! Lol.
Have a great week and stay cool!
Thanks for stopping by!
Prim Blessings, Jean
