Default Home Spun Cotton Ornament Instructions?

Hello! I’m new to the forum. I have been searching the internet for (free) instructions on how to make “home spun cotton ornaments/crafts (antique-replicas),” but have had no success. Can anyone tell me where I can find instructions and/or tutorials on how to make them? It seems to be a big secret, or I’m just not looking in the right places!
Thank you in advance!

Do you happen to have a photo example of what a homespun cotton ornament is? I have no idea what that means.

To me they look like ornaments you will find in country home store.

Default Thank You

Thanks for all of the replies, everyone! And thank you, UndrThTblNDrumng, for the very helpful instruction site --you’re a better “searcher” than I. I appreciate all of the input and help. Now I have a starting point!
Have a great day!

Thanks, UndrThTblNDrumng; I'll be sure to post when I get some made. I'm trying my hand at those, and also the primitive dolls (and a few other things). Just starting out, and spent most of the the last three days cutting out the cloth bodies for my prim dolls ... much work ahead.
