Table Toppers: Green Acres and Prairie Girl

TableTopper and PillowWrap and PillowCover and KitchenTowels: Green Acres and Prairie Girl

Approximate size: 35" long x 10" wide
$12.00 plus $2.90 postage
Side One: Green Acres is a duck fabric printed with many farmhouse soft black prints and also gray prints. 
Side Two: Prairie Girl fabric is a very soft look-alike to ticking fabric. It looks similar but it is a soft cotton fabric instead. It has a very country/primitive/rustic look to it.
I also sell PillowWraps made from the exact same fabrics. The wraps fit over existing pillows (not included) that are anywhere between 12" square to 18" square. You can tell me the size of your pillow and I can make the wrap which you just slip over your pillows to give you a new look to display on your couch, chairs, beds.
I can also make you envelope PillowCovers from the same fabrics also. Pillow Covers are easy to slip onto your pillow forms (not included). PillowCovers range from $12-$18, plus postage, depending on pillow form size.
The PillowWraps and PillowCovers are accessorized with wood slice buttons plus 3 more color-coordinated buttons that are not used as closures, but rather decorative.
PillowWraps are sold by the inch. A 9" wide wrap will cost $9, etc. plus $2.90 postage.
The PillowCover in the photo below is a different fabric than Prairie Girl, but I will use that fabric on the back of the cover and Green Acres on the front.

I also make KitchenTowels with a white and/or black towel (the one shown below is a sample). The towel topper is made with Green Acres fabric and Prairie Girl fabric and closes with a black button.
$7.00 per towel plus $2.90 postage for one towel.
If you buy more than one product, postage fees will be combined to save you $$$.
I've also made placemats from the same two fabrics. Approximately size is 12.5" wide x 17.5" long for $8 each plus postage.
Paypal and money orders accepted.

Table Topper: The Apple Farmer

Table Topper: The Apple Farmer
An appliqued Table Topper featuring appliques made by Elaine of Elaine's Appliques.
The topper is made from two farming themed fabrics showing the tools that farmers of long-ago (and perhaps even the Amish of today) might have used to till their land to grow crops that feed all of us.
One side of the topper features delicious apples made of shades of red & white gingham with green leaves and brown stems. And how could we see a farm scene without roosters! These are shouting cock-a-doodle-doo at the crack of dawn to make the farmer aware that it's time to get up and to get to work. There are antique tools such as a wooden-handled tiller, work gloves, rakes, picks and a wheelbarrow. The background of the topper consists of various colors of burnt orange reminding me of the Autumn season of the year.
The background of the 2nd side of the topper is tan with smudges of brown and shows you so many farm scenes: Men toiling in the field, windmills, barns, silos, scarecrows, covered bridges, fencing, lots of trees, cornstalks, rain barrels and sunflowers (all in various shades of brown). My favorite part is all the small poems plastered throughout the topper such as:
*Oh, shine on, shine on harvest moon up in the sky.
*Plowing and harrowing planting seed praying rain for daily need.
*Brown grows the weeds on the cold clear river. Dry in wind the grasses shiver.
*Far from the south wild geese go crying; through fallen leaves the winds walk sighing.
*Out in the field in the scorching sun Straining his back till the day is done.
$17.00 plus $3.75 postage
Size: approximately 35" long x 10-11" wide
Paypal available and money orders accepted also.
Two-sided displays of years gone by. Imagine all the table conversation that will take place as you feed your guests and they see the pretty red apples, representing local farmers AND all those sweet poems that will remind your guests of the old days.
I've added some embellishments of centerpieces and napkins with holders that you could copy to make your table even more inviting. Those guests of yours might just show up unexpectedly for dinner at times when they haven't actually been invited!!
