Feeling Ticking-ly Creative...

 The Cranky Queen has always liked ticking fabric...it has such a "history-look" to it.  I guess it brings back memories of my childhood sleeping on blue ticking down pillows...Just a little pumpkin that I made using black & white ticking, burlap stem, buttons, & gold felt-like fabric.
I am going to Be-Witch someone with this "happy" little pumpkin...I will just drop this little fella off @ a gal pal's house & leave a note, telling them "They Have Been Be-Witched"...
The Cranky Queen loves to be anonymous!
 This is my next creation...A new "junkin' bag"...
 I layered different patterned fabrics to make the flower petals. Old buttons for the center & check out the leaf made from an old zipper part~
 The purse handle is men's ties...
 I cut the same ticking on the bias and gathered it on my sewing machine to make trim, then embellished it with vintage buttons!~
This was my inspiration for my purse seen at the Strawberry Patch Barn Sale!
