A Mini Sewing Kit
I'm so happy you chose to stop in today!
Are you gearing up to get creative?! As the colder weather approaches, and the Holidays as well, it's the perfect time to set some (realistic : ) goals for gift giving and card making too. With as much as I have on my mind, making 'lists' for myself is invaluable! I will usually use a calendar and fill in 'goals' for what I hope to accomplish each day; as the Holidays approach. Remembering the 'Reason for the Season!'
Well, here is my offering for >>> Wen's linky neutrals party!
Made from burlap and covered with linen (cut w/pinking shears.) The burlap is stitched with gold thread (to prevent fraying) and the dress form, pin cushion and 'sew artsy' sentiment are all stamped on. The rosette was purchased at a very cool local home décor shoppe. (I added a button on top.) The stick pin I made with a corsage pin and some beads. The kit is 'understated' embellishment wise, since I'm hoping she will really use it on a regular basis!
I have a die that cuts little spools, so I made a few from cardboard and wrapped some thread & seam binding around.
The center section has a strip of wide (and durable) twill tape; for needles, etc. I left a small section un-sewn @ the top to house the little scissors.
The left side is also a pocket, made from a remnant of tablecloth I think! This pocket holds a pretty (die cut) tag with a few necessities~
There are two pieces of twill tape, one on each side, to tie this little kit closed~
I will be taking my little sewing kit to the (click >) SIMPLY NEUTRALS TUESDAY linky party @ AppleApricot's blog! I hope you will take time to click here and see what Wen has in store!
Always Beautiful; Always Inspiring~
