In centuries past, ladies kept a sewing roll to hold all their essentials for needlework neatly contained. The seamstress of today will find a sewing roll just as useful! This one is has two interior pockets, which close with buttons, in which to hold all the necessary items for needlework. They are safe places in which to keep your thimble, needle case, embroidery floss, and more. Additionally, there are two spaces behind the pockets that are useful for holding other items. An ivory-colored piece of wool, neatly secured with tiny, handsewn blanket stitching, is intended to hold your pins and needles. A piece of twill tape will hold your scissors. The outside of the roll is made from a crewel work linen. The crewel work is done in rich shades of green, brown, blue, burgandy, and more. The interior is of a coordinating brown linen. To add to the authenticity of this reproduction item, the pockets were hand-stitched onto the linen background and the bias-cut, linen binding has been handstitched to the front of the sewing roll. When rolled up, it can be tied with a twill ribbon which is secured to the front edge. To add weight, yet softness, sandwiched between the two layers are a layer of cotton twill and a layer of cotton flannel.

This is a wonderful accroutement for the historical reenactor, and a delightful sewing tool for the skillful seamstress. It would also make a lovely gift for an aspiring seamstress to encourage her in her skills.

This sewing roll/pinkeep measures approximately 7" wide and 15" long.

Laundering instructions: spot clean, if necessary.

Please note: pins, scissors, thimble, ribbon, and needle case are not included.
