Primitive Full Moon Door Greeter

Thanks for dropping by today. It’s a full moon and the bats are out! I just love how this door greeter turned out. It is my own design and a one-of-a-kind. It is made from the white part of an old cutter quilt.

The back is unbleached muslin. I stained it with a fragrant prim coffee and spice mix and baked it to reveal a very nice aged quality. I then rubbed the backside with fabric stiffener. It turned out so prim and the staining gives the moon that “shadowy” effect. Flying in front of the moon are two black bats, made from unbleached muslin. They have been slightly stuffed with polyfil and their wings stitched to give them a quilted effect. They were then stained, baked, stain painted black and baked once again.

Primitive Fall Autumn Leaves Bowl Fillers Ornies

Thanks for dropping by today. You won’t want to rake or burn these leaves! These autumn leaves are made from a cutter quilt in beautiful fall colors. The backsides are unbleached muslin.

There are three oak leaves and two maple leaves. They have been slightly stuffed with fiberfill and I have hand stitched the veins on them. They have been stained with a fragrant prim mix and baked. Three of the leaves have rusty bells pinned on with rusty safety pins.

The oak leaves measure 5-3/4 inches tall by 4 inches wide and the maple leaves measure 4-3/4 inches tall by 5 inches wide. You will receive the five leaves seen here. Also included is a prim tag that reads “Autumn Leaves”. These would look great scattered among your fall decor!
