Set of two Sawdust pillows with Rusty Key
I listed the link above to the Ebay auction for this set of 2 sawdust pillows, handcrafted by me, out of aged calico and ticking fabric. I tied them together and attached the rusty key and hangtag. So pRiM!

Another Teddy Bear!

I don't know what it is about ole' primitive teddy bears, but I just love them!  I've found that there are not many patterns for sale for them.. I did find and purchase one from Sweet Meadow Farms.. and I have really enjoyed making that one.. and since then have made several patterns myself.. I just made this one tonight, from my original pattern.. He measures about 12" sitting. I think I'll keep this one, but I hope to have some made and on Ebay soon.

Ole' Prim Peter Rabbit Feedsack Bag

It is made from tea stained muslin and a brown calico backing. I added the image of the ole' bunny, it says "Peter Rabbit Brand Carrots Since 1898".  I stuffed it with old rag scraps and added dried grass to the top to look like carrot stems, these will be available on Ebay for 12.95 plus traveling fee. So prim hanging from an old peg, cupboard door, or can be tucked among your other prims.
