Designer Mari Martin came into the office one day and showed off some
amazing pillows she was working on. They were felted wool and Osnaburg,
with amazing applique and embroidery detail. I fell in love with them
and was instantly inspired! I really do love folk art, of many forms
and thought it would be really great to create a collection based on
primitive folk art, something we haven’t done yet and Primitive Pennies
is the result. I’m attracted to the simplicity and charm of primitive
folk art; I just love the quirky, unpolished and handmade feel that
this art style embodies. (The below images are Mari's personal
projects, these patterns and designs are from Wooden Spool Designs, which we do not sell on our site)
Our last lesson for the wallet includes finishing up the zipper pocket! This is great
and I do hope you are having as much fun making it as I did! I love this
project and I love Primitive Pennies collection!!! You will need to purchase the kit from Connecting Threads #6383 for $7.45 (not including shipping) to make the wallet.
I found this part of the wallet construction most interesting. I've installed a great many zippers, but none this way. You will need to purchase the kit from Connecting Threads #6383 for $7.45 (not including shipping) to make the wallet.
Join me in making this deliciously beautiful and cleverly constructed wallet! Once you see how it's made you'll want to make several for gifts! I am! It's great! You will need to purchase the kit from Connecting Threads #6383 for $7.45 (not including shipping) to make the wallet.
Thank you to everyone who entered this year's Win Your Wish List Contest. We've selected three participants at random to be our winners. Congratulations to Patti Cardona, Sheila Wood and Denna Rentz! These three lucky winners will each receive a $50 gift card to Connecting Threads.
It's so fun to see what's on everyone's Wish Lists this year. The winners had a great variety of products that they were wishing for, from kits to books to thread sets and more! You can visit this page to see other Most Wished for items at Connecting Threads. Of course, the staff here at Connecting Threads wanted to get in on the fun too. Since they couldn't enter the contest, they've made their own wish lists. We hope all of your Holiday wishes come true this year. Thanks for playing along.
