1769 Whale Pin Keep





1769 Whale Pin Keep
The blue-gray whale is made from recycled, felted wool and is blanket-stitched on a reproduction dotted paisley cotton fabric... which sort of looks like little whales! The year 1769 has been hand-embroidered with DMC cotton floss. The pin keep is completely hand-stitched, filled with wool scraps from my previous projects, and has a hand-written label stitched on the back. It measures about 5" x 7-1/2". The old felt-covered pins are NOT included.

If you'd like to add this pin keep to your folk art collection,
it's yours for $35 (plus shipping).
Email me to purchase.

Pumpkins Wall Hanging and Acorn Pin Keeps ~ Recycled Wool


Recently I designed and made a few items using recycled wool skirts and sweaters. I love to repurpose textiles whenever possbile!

If you are interested in purchasing any of them, please email me at lanamanis@gmail.com.


Stacked Pumpkins in a Basket Wall Hanging ~ $65 plus shipping
This design was taken from my stacked pumpkins block print that I did several years ago. Everything was hand-stitched by me. I have attached a couple of brass rings on the back to use for hanging if you don't want to use a vintage hanger like the one in the photo.
Fabrics: recycled wool, robins egg blue linen background, dark robins egg blue dotted paisley backing and binding.
Embroidery: French knots, blanket stitch, feather stitch.
Size: 8 1/2" x 11"
