The sewing accessories have finally been completed! A tiny needlebook (hand embroidered using variegated Valdani embroidery threads and hand appliqued), and a scissor fob, also hand embroidered and trimmed with a cute tassel. These match my Konnichiwa Sewing Basket (pattern by Lynette Andersons Designs and fabrics also by Lynette)...
his shows a close-up of the needlebook. The front has been hand embroidered and hand appliqued. It's tiny, measuring just 2.5" x 2" when it's closed...
...and tucked neatly inside is a woollen page for storing needles. This needlebook can be safely stored inside one of the tiers of the basket, along with the scissors...
...this shows a close-up of the scissor fob, with it's smart tassel (I didn't want to waste my beautiful Valdani threads for this, so used DMC threads in toning colours for the tassel and the twisted cord). The button is hand embroidered, and is made in 2 halves, each one covering a plastic dome button whish is then hand stitched together. These can be popped into my Konnichiwa Sewing Basket, and will look very smart displayed on my sewing table ready for special friends coming over for a sewing day.
