I truly enjoyed stitching this needle book! It is handstitched on antiqued/distressed linen using muted shades of pewter, brown, charcoal, cream, and olive. The motifs are taken from a pocket sampler stitched in the early 1800s ~ the name "Anne Lancaster" is stitched in clockwise fashion starting with her first name in the sections surrounding the center of the star. Reproduction calico cotton fabric was used for the backing and the inside of the needle book. Inside the needle book I have attached a pocket for storing your scissors. Two old wool patches on the inside cover collect pins, needles, and old buttons (which are included). I attached some hand-dyed seam ribbon as ties to close the needle book and then whipstitched around the whole piece.
The dimensions of this needle book are approximately 7.25" x 6.5" (closed) and 7.25" x 13" (open).
NOTE: The scissors featured in the photos are NOT FOR SALE ~ they are used for photographic purposes only.
This treasure was crafted in my non-smoking home. My two cats and two dogs do not smoke, either!
