"a-MAIZE-ing Harvest" - Door Decor finished size 14" x 18"; Individual Indian Corn Cobs - 13", 15" & 17"; Bittersweet Vine - 20" Long
These Indian corn cobs are a STITCHERY project - NOT rug hooking! Many people have been asking how these are made, and we want to assure you that these are made with a fabric base that is embroidered with the kernels (a very simple technique with lots of photos and descriptions to explain it!)
THREAD KITS AVAILABLE FOR SPECIAL OFFERING - Saturday, October 3, I will be teaching this project in Colorado Springs! If you'd like more information email or call me: firstname.lastname@example.org or (719) 282-3518. Through this date THREAD KITS are available for purchase for each color and size of Indian Corn Cob at a special class pricing: Large Gold Cob - $58 (wool base and 13 skeins of hand dyed threads), Medium Blue/Green Cob - $53 (wool base and 11 skeins of thread), Small Red Cob - $32 (wool base and 6 skeins of thread). Pattern is sold separately and kits do NOT include wool and thread for husks. You do not need to attend class to purchase thread kits, but you must order by calling us because we do not have the threads on our webstore at this time. Shipment is expected by end of September as they are arriving to our studio now!
In autumn, I hunt for the most amazing colors of Indian corn that I can find at road side farm stands. From year to year, I add to my collection, having to toss out a few that have been nibbled on too much by the squirrels! So now this WOOL version of Indian corn cobs should last a long time!
Our pattern includes instructions to make three different sizes of corn cobs, with three different techniques for their husks, plus instructions for crafting a vine of bittersweet from wool, thread, wire and floral tape! Cluster all these together for a door spray or use the cobs and vine independently to dress a tablescape, mantle or bowl! Have fun using these wool versions mixed together with real pumpkins and gourds.
Our original design for fully dimensional and realistic looking Indian Corn Cobs and bittersweet vine! This design is made using embroidery stitches such as French knot, Stem Stitch, and of course Blanket Stitch.
Made from felted wool fabrics and stitched with a great variety of hand-dyed, variegated threads from: Weeks Dye Works, The Gentle Art, ThreadworX and The Caron Collection. Complete instructions for stitching the entire project, separately drawn pattern pieces, and our signature "photo sheet" with 50 color step-by-step photographs to coordinate with the written instructions.
