Bettina and her Crow

Perfectly primitive, Bettina sits about 21" tall. I made her from a Pineberry Lane pattern. She's been painted and distressed and rubbed all over with cinnamon. She features button eyes, a hand-stitched mouth, and wears an osnaburg dress and a checked jumper with a frilled bottom trim. Her pet crow hangs from a string around her neck.

The pincushion is tan and light brown print and has a rusty safety pin holding an old button. I've fastened it with string to a glass candle-holder which I've painted black and sprinkled with a cinnamon mixture.

#HW-01 Sewing Huswif

In earlier times, anyone who might have to reattach a button carried one of these sewing rollups, portable mending kits, also called huswifs. They often held tiny scissors, a thimble, embroidery threads, buttons, and pins. I made this one in red and brown cotton fabrics based on a pattern in Early American Life magazine, measuring 4 1/4" x 9 1/2". It has 3 little pockets to hold sewing needfuls and is embellished with a stuffed little heart and a small piece of wool on the bottom pocket for a rusty safety pin and a couple of buttons. (Scissors and pins not included.) It rolls up in thirds to 3 1/4" x 4 1/4" and has a little button on the back to keep it closed.
