February Updates

Love Birds Pinkeep

This pinkeep measures 5-3/4" x 4-1/4" and is stitched on aged linen with conventional threads.  It is wool snippet stuffed for a flattened appearance, the linen is hand stitched to the wool backing.  No machine sewing on this pinkeep.... all hand stitched. 

I have added a rusty heart tied with a bit of pearl cotton to the corner.
It is backed with a neutral plaid wool.

Blue Birds Linen Pinkeep

This pinkeep measures 4-3/4" x 4-1/4" and is stitched on aged linen with hand over-dyed threads. 

It is clean sawdust filled for a somewhat old flattened appearance and is hand stitched together with small primitive whipstitches.  The sawdust is in a separate muslin pouch inside the pinkeep.

I have attached a small rusty pin on the front and it is backed with black wool.

Primitive Heart Make-Do

This primitive make-do measures 10-1/2" x 5-3/4" wide (at the widest section of the heart).  I have used a variety of fabrics; cottons and tickings.  There are many different decorative stitches on the heart, most of them hand stitched.  There is a rusty look key and rusty safety pin attached.     

The heart sits in a reclaimed spring that I have tied at the base to shorten it a tad.  There is a grunged reversible tag tied to the spring with an over-dyed strip of lace.  

 It is backed with the aged cottage floral fabric shown on the top of the heart.
