Welcome to Torihouse Primitives. I hope you enjoy my June 2017 Offerings. Please be sure to click on each picture for a larger view.

"Land That I Love Pinkeep Pillow"  


I have used Irish Linen for the stitching on this Patriotic pinkeep.  The hand dyed threads give the Pinkeep a soft faded look.  The backing is a reproduction fabric from the Old Sturbridge Village collection.  Walnut crystals and pure cotton stuffing give the Pinkeep that aged and primitive look.  Attached to the front are Civil War era bone buttons.  I have primitively cross stitched the seams around the outer edge. This original design is by "Nan Lewis".  The measurements are approximately 11 and 1/4 inches by 5 and 3/4 inches. SOLD


"Glory Bee Pinkeep Pillow"  



This is another fun stitch I have done.  The design by "Country Rustic Primitives".  It has a flag and beehive surrounded by tiny flying bees and is wonderful  to display all summer and into the fall.  The backing is a small floral Civil War reproduction cotton fabric.  Pure cotton stuffing gives the Pinkeep that aged and primitive look.  The measurements are approximately 8 inches by 8 inches. Offered at $35.00 plus shipping and handling.

"Primitive Mt. Victory School Sampler"  


  I love this primitive style that a young girl just learning to stitch would have made.  My stitching was done on straw linen that has been aged with walnut crystals.  No glass on this one for a nice early look.  The frame on the sampler is vintage.  I have sealed the back of the sampler with brown paper.  A saw tooth hook is included for hanging.  Outside measurements of the frame are approximately 9 inches by 10 inches.  "Stitches of Olde" has designed this sampler.  Offered at $45.00 plus shipping and handling.

"Uncle Sam Pinkeep Pillow"  



What could bring on summer more than Uncle Sam and the American flag! I love stitching Pinkeeps and have aged the linen with walnut crystals for that primitive look.  The front and back of the pillow are a wonderful blue wool fabric which blends in nicely with Uncle Sam's coat.  The pillow is filled with pure cotton stuffing.  I have primitively cross stitched the front seam.  The pattern was designed by "Shelly Owen".  Measurements are approximately 9 and 1/4 inches by 5 and 1/4 inches. SOLD

"Liberty Sewing Pouch"  




1776 and Liberty are the theme of this sewing pouch.  The design is by "Stacy Nash" .  I have stitched this pattern on linen and aged the fabric with walnut crystals.  The back of the pouch is a wonderful red and black check cotton fabric with tiny eagles.  The lining and ties are a blue Civil War era reproduction cotton fabric which I have hand sewn. The measurements are approximately 8 and 1/2 inches by 7 and 1/4 inches. SOLD

"Eagle and Alphabet Redwork Sampler"  


  I love stitching samplers, especially in one color.  I have stitched this one in red.  It looks so neat against the hand dyed linen.  The design is by "Country Rustic Primitives".  The frame is painted in red with a black topcoat that is distressed to show some of the red.  There is no glass on this one so that it has more of a primitive look.  I have sealed the back of the sampler with brown paper.  A saw tooth hook is included for hanging.  Outside measurements of the frame are approximately 8 and 1/2 inches by 6 and 1/2 inches.  SOLD
