As always, I have used quality DMC threads in the prettiest variagated pink for the hand embroidered bullion roses on deep aubergine wool. On my moniter, the wool shows as a little blueish, but in reality it is purpleish. Dotted here and there are pretty buds and soft green leaves.

The front shows a beautiful pewter coloured button featuring a scene of a mother and daughter using an old treadle machine. The button was expensive, but the detail was so precise, that I couldn't help but buy it for my tape measures. I have attached some beautiful rose tinted glass beads to the steel end of the tape measure and it gives a sweet antique look to the overall design. The back has been made using the same wool and I have embroidered a single bullion rose and buds. See picture #4.

Pretty pink braid surrounds the entire tape measure and by pressing the pewter button, the tape will retract. While I imagine that most ladies would only use it for display in their collection, it is also a very usable item and would make a glorious gift for someone special.

The tape measure itself is a premium quality 60"/1.5m German made retractable tape. It is reinforced with fibre glass to prevent stretching and has both metric and imperial measurements clearly and accurately printed. Unfortunately, the cost of these tape measures have risen considerably since my last listing, hence the price rise. Please be assured of a high quality item.

Approx measurements : 2 1/2" diameter and about 3/4" deep.

Apologies for the high cost of shipping from Australia, but I only ask what Australia Post charges. I carry all costs of the box, padded bags, wrapping and bubble wrap etc.

Most of my items are light weight and small so I can generally fit 4 or more items into one box and happy to hold off on shipping if you want to wait for more listings.

As always with shipping , any over charges greater than $1 will be credited to your Paypal account.
