Are You Ready for July 4th?

Pics above and at right show an Americana Rabbit Door Doll with American Flag hangs on my front door. Now, that's what I call showing your American spirit! Especially with July 4Th fast approaching. This pattern by Becky Erickson will not disappoint you if you try it; her patterns are always great! If you go to her site,, you will be amazed at all the Americana patterns she has. I love the extreme prim look she does.

Also pictured, shown in my chipped and rusted enamelware pan: little flag pillows, Uncle Sammies, firecrackers, burgundy white and navy pip berry spray, pick with cream and burgundy pip berries and rusty stars and a tea stained 13-star flag.

Uncle Sams were done from a Crows Roost Prims pattern. So unique and original!! Sure to put a big grin on every one's faces, they are fun to make and grungy up! I made 1 for my boss at work, too!

The flag pillows were based on Nanny Goat Primitives pattern. I used a smaller stripe red ticking than called for, denim and buttons instead of navy star fabric. Grungy tags with "Freedom" "Old Flag" and "July 4Th" on them attached with a rusty safety pin and bell. All grungied up and smelling good!

My firecrackers I just winged it using grungy patriotic fabric with twine fuses, wrapped in grungy cheesecloth and a round "USA" tag.

Need to email me? I welcome comments, suggestions, questions so go right ahead!
