Today I'll show you the country ensemble I put together on and above my dryer. I got the pretty wreath at a local country store-----love the little rag balls in it -- they match the ones I bought to put into a Mason Jar on top of my dryer.
I made the stuffed mason jar attached to the side by
- stamping my jar stamp
- layering a piece of batting and another piece of muslin
- sewing around it
- lightly penciling "friends" on the front
- embroidering over the saying
- coloring over the whole thing lightly with colored pencils
- adding a few buttons
Here's a closer view:
Just the tag:
Here's what the rag balls look like:
Of course the country look includes baskets - so I put my clothes pins in this one and added a torn strip of gingham fabric and a stuffed paper bag star to it.
The paper bag star was made by
- stamping a background stamp onto a paper bag
- cutting out a star shape
- sewing another paper star shape to the back
- stuffing it with batting
Here's the digital creation I made and frames using images from:

It's coming together beautifully, Esther. Really like your curtain. Laundry rooms are so utilitarian we sometimes forget they should be beautiful, too.
