Primitive Crafts

I have been busy crafting again for some of my local customers. The holiday season is approaching so requests are rolling in.

The following picture is of a primitive snowman that I stitched on tea-stained muslin (to give it an aged look) using DMC floss. I then matted and framed in in a barn red frame under glass. The piece measures 5x7" not including the frame so its a little larger than that.

The next item is a primitive pillow. It is of some primitive raggedy friends and says BEST FRIENDS and was stitched on tea dyed muslin using DMC floss. I framed the stitchery with 2" wide hunter green check pattern homespun fabric and the backside of the pillow is a solid piece of hunter green homespun fabric. I will finish the pillow later today with some cotton stuffing. The pillow is your classic standard throw pillow or accent pillow size. I think it came out beautiful.

I will be a busy crafter from now and up until Christmas doing orders so I will share some pictures and craft projects every week with all of my blog readers.
