Delicate stitchery, combined with a lovely vintage print fabric, embellishes these simple containers for your needlework essentials. The needlecase features three leaves of cashmere wool for storage of needles protected from rust, as well as a pocket inside for storage for spare packets of needles. The scissors case has a silk ribbon for attachment of scissors, and the ribbon can be wound round a lovely decorative button at the back, when not in use. The pretty pincushion is a teapot, the lid of which lifts to reveal a hiding spot for your silver thimble! With just the right mix of nostalgia and practicality, this little set of pretty sewing accessories is a delight to make, and a joy to own or to give!
The scissors case and needle case are stiffened with buckram stiffening. Buckram is no longer available. We suggest you use bag wadding, as this will give the necessary stiffness.
Kit include pattern and fabric. These fabrics are now sold out completely. We are making our kits in a beautiful new combination of florals from Japan – the highest quality on the market: Kits are now in new fabrics with a gorgeous floral for the interior.
Deluxe Kit has pattern and fabric, and also contains beads, pearls, silk ribbon, cashmere wool for needle case, a charm (not the same as the one pictured), and threads to make the three items in this project.
