A new little pouch!

I had fun punching this Father Christmas design by Robin of Bird In The Hand Primitive! I added it
to black wool to create the primitive pocket! The back of the pouch is the same black wool I used on the front and also to make the strap. It is lined with my favorite piece of mustard flannel with tiny dots in different colors.  
A close up of the punched design!

Primitive Handmades Mercantile Update

Updates are now available over at PHM!  You won't want to miss them! 
 Several of us used Robin's Bird in the Hand Primitives doodle to create one of our offerings for this month!  The doodle is a Father Christmas Santa and simply prim perfect!
This is just one reason why you should be signed up for our newsletter because each month Robin graciously donates a free drawing for you to punch, hook, paint, stitch or applique!  This is also the doodle which our newsletter subscribers received today!  We are also having a $75.00 "Thank you" gift certificate drawing on Black Friday for one of our lucky newsletter subscribers to win! This is the second reason why you should be signed up for our newsletter! 
Here is my wool appliqued mat or wall hanging I created for the challenge.
Here is what else listed today! I cross stitched a Santa, Joy and tree on a piece of prairie cloth and mounted it onto an old barrel stave!
I'm on a mission to find these little old brown crocks to make covers for!  I see a new display at my craft shows next year!  This one did sell but I have another identical crock here to create another one!
Remember last summer when I posted the stacks and stacks of unfinished wood appliance covers in my garage!  Well... the stacks are finally dewindling down! I've been painting and selling them at my shows all year and trying to find other uses for them!  I loved this old looking Christmas label so I placed it on this 2 slice toaster cover for a different look! A great hiding place suitable for any room!
I'm offering some of my mom's wonderful coverlet stockings this month too!  She has been busy busy busy stitching these up along with some of the cutest little mittens! Which I will show you! Love them in this old bowl!
She is selling these that are made from woven coverlet fabric for $2.50 each and oh so cute!!!
Just as cute are the cotton fabric ones which she sells for $2.00! If you need any for your little trees just email me!  They are about 2 3/4" in lenght! So cute!
Now back to PHM!!!  Check out the Pinterest board to see some updates from each shop all on one page! Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I would like to take this time to wish everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!!!
