Primitive Pumpkin Patch

In my first post I talked about my journey into the craft world that started about three years ago. Amongst the classes I took at that time was an online primitive craft class. I don’t remember what I was searching for at that time, but whatever it was brought me to The Ragged Fence, an online primitive craft shop… my first introduction to handmade primitive crafts. They have a large selection of products, and most of them are handmade by the shop owners, Deb and Gerald… a husband and wife duo! As I was browsing, I learned that they offer classes. I thought how neat would that be to make my own primitive crafts? So I signed up for a class! I started with one class… and enjoyed it so much that I took two other classes after that. Deb teaches the classes. Her instructions are well put together and easy to follow. She was so sweet and encouraging… and readily available to help! Today’s show & tell craft is inspired by Deb. It’s this fall’s first craft project that I share with you… a primitive pumpkin patch!

My SD Susu joined me in making one… her first primitive craft! I have her’s sitting on our fireplace mantel, and I gifted the one I made. What do you guys think? I hope Deb approves of them!

What I love about primitive crafts is that the imperfections are what makes them perfect! It’s the craft that says “it’s ok not to be perfect”! :D

You can purchase the muslin pumpkins and mini and large crows from The Ragged Fence. They come cut and pre-sewn… ready for you to stuff, stain, paint, bake, and sand. The grubby tags are from there as well. Now go check out this shop!

Thanks Deb for the inspiration!
