Two primitive pinkeeps are worked on aged linen and filled with clean sawdust for a somewhat flattened olde finish. 

The reindeer pinkeep measures 4-1/2" x 7" and has rusty bells attached in the corners. 

The Xmas pinkeep measures 4" x 5-3/4" and has rusty bells attached in the corners.  Both pinkeeps are whipstitched on the edges for a primitive finish.

They are backed with a warm neutral plaid wool.

Rudolph is a dimensional punch needle reindeer measuring 5" x 5-1/4"  

He is worked with Valdani hand over-dyed threads and has a subtle cotton print backing. 

Rudolph has a wool scarf, rusty bell nose and twigs for antlers and legs. He stands on his own legs but I have attached a clear thread hanger for hanging if desired.

Snowmen In The Round

A group of happy snowmen are stitched on linen and secured to a sturdy round box measuring 7-1/2" x 4".  The paper mache box is based with black, lightly stenciled with a checkerboard design and antiqued.  

The snowmen and S N O W wording is stitched with muted overdyed threads on aged linen.

Oh Christmas Tree Make-Do

This dimensional punch needle make-do measures 9" high.  The base is 3-1/2" square and the tree at the widest part near the bottom is 5-1/4".  

I worked this make-do with Valdani hand over-dyed threads, it is a Brenda Gervais design.  There is rusty wire with tiny bells wound around the tree and a rusty star on the top.  

Strips of cotton homespun are tied at the base, the tree trunk is an actual tree branch cut and shaped to fit into the base.  

The back is dark forest green wool, a heavy coat weight.
