Living on the farm in South Central Kansas, gives me the experiences of color and textures to use in creating my designer hand bags, horse hair bracelets and machine embroidery hand and tea towels.
I raise registered Boer goats, mainly for herd replacement animals and 4-H projects. 2 Pyrenees/Anatolian dogs (Slick and Fuzzie) guard my girls 24-7-365. Why do we need guard dogs? Cyotes, bob cats and stray dogs create a big threat to the little ones that are just born. And of course there is always the elusive cougar that threaten the adults. 2 blue healers, Ace and Walker share our space as well as Abby the Pembrooke Welch Corgi, (who LOVES to help herd the goats and chickens) several barn cats, and a large assortment of chickens that bless us with beautiful large brown eggs daily. Life on our farm is exciting, rewarding, happy and comfortable.
PRAIRIE THISTLE CREATIONS was born a little over 1 year ago when I was laid off from my job. I needed to generate income so I fell back on some basic training from Jr. high.........sewing. Now I am telling my age as I understand sewing is no longer offered in the modern school curriculum. Ha Ha. A friend found a great deal on a combination embroidery machine and 2 hand bag patterns. That got the creative juices flowing and the rest is history. I always have to "fine tune" anything I attempt. Whether it be sewing, cooking or making home made soap. So with some snipping, clipping, resizing, adding this feature and adding that feature, I feel that I have truly recreated a pair of designer hand bag styles to offer the person who loves quality and something different. There are no 2 hand bags alike. Some may appear similair, but there will be a difference some where on that bag to make it truly " one of a kind".
PRAIRIE THISTLE CREATIONS has 3 divisions at this time.
1. Hand made 4 patch designer hand bags. by Annie Moeder. Each hand bag is individually made, saddle stitched for strength, some embellished with conchos, lots of pockets, beautifully machine embroidered depending on the motif. Hand washable.

HORSE HAIR BRACELETS
Using horse hair for creating jewelry is a very old art form. A thoughtful gift for that "horse lover" or a truly unique gift for the person who enjoys the unusual. I use a couple of different types of clasps; peg and ring, lobster and the slip string. the best thing about the slip string is that your bracelet can also be used as an ankle bracelet by simply extending the string all the way out.
The Horse Hair memory bracelets are becoming more popular every day. I will make your Memory bracelet if you send tail hair from your favorite pal at least 18" long and in a strand about the size of your thumb. you will need to specify which clasp and what kind of beads (silver plate or copper plate) and if you want colored stones incorporated. Please allow 2-3 weeks for special orders. THERE IS NO EXTRA CHARGE FOR SPECIAL ORDERS. Pre payment must accompany tail hair.
MACHINE EMBROIDERY HAND AND TEA TOWELS
Add that special look to your bathroom or kitchen with your favorite topic machine embroidered hand towels and tea towels. I have lots of designs, but if I don't have the one you want, there will be a $5.00 set up fee in addition to the regular price of the towel. Initials or names can be added for $1.00 per towel. Please allow 2-3 week for special orders. 50% deposit on all special orders.
Words can describe, but pictures tell it all. You are invited to visit my store to see the PRAIRIE THISTLE CREATIONS.
