November offerings...

Welcome to An Early Christmas, here on Earlywork Mercantile!

A sweet little Santa, dressed in red!! He is made of osnaburg, which has been stained and distressed in many layers, to give him a timeworn appearance.
His features are stitched on, with a separately applied nose.
The clothing is all made from high quality reproduction fabrics in a red civil war calico, and red striped homespun ticking , all trimmed with cotton batting.  His beard is beautiful Cotswold wool, and he has a little gingerbread man pinned to his coat. 


This little Santa measures about 15” tall, including the hat. He has a loop on the back for hanging.  An Old Branch Hollow Original design, signed and dated.


Santa is Spoken for- Thank you Susan!

Here's a lovely Primitive punch needle mat, just in time for Christmas decorating.




It features a whimsical Santa holding a twiggy tree. I've punched this piece with DMC flosses on weaver's cloth. Finished with a braided wool edging, accented with wool felt holly leaves and a rusty bell. Backed  with reclaimed wool.



I used a pattern from Notforgotten Farm to make this colorful, primitive mat. I will add an old safety in to the back, so you can hang it if you like.
