Item details

Every organised woman has the wherewithall within her handbag to sew on a button or make a quick running repair in an emergency while travelling. Not every woman keeps this wherewithall in a pretty sewing case!

Apart from the construction, which is done by machine to ensure longevity, this sewing or needle case has been hand stitched. I've used Robert Kaufman's Essex linen in a lime shade, and a navy and white snowdrop print called 'Hesketh' in Liberty Tana Lawn to make it, as well as quality interfacing, threads and satin ribbons.

I've kept the outer of the case simple and clear to allow the pretty Liberty print to speak for itself. The natural coloured felt pages in the centre for needles and pins are pure wool felt. The outer of the case is softly padded with fusible fleece, and a medium interfacing has been added to both the outer and lining, to give some structure. The case is closed with a flower shaped wooden button and a loop, which I've made by crocheting some dark gold lurex thread, to add a touch of bling.

I’ve added a pocket with snap closure and embroidered detail to the inside front, and a scissor case at the back, which has been hand appliqued into place. You can buy this case with or without the sewing tools, which include mini scissors, some pretty heart shaped long dressmaker’s pins, safety pins, three needles, a needle threader and a card wrapped with white, black, red and beige thread.

The case when closed is 4.25" tall by 4" wide (10.25cm by 10cm). If you would like me to make you a sewing case using these fabrics with different design details, in another size, or to add a hand embroidered name or initials, just convo me to discuss or request a custom order so I can let you know what's possible and give you a quotation without any obligation.

Average review
I've bought several items from Debbie and will continue to be a return customer because of the gorgeous fabrics and excellent quality as well as the fabulous customer service. I love this little sewing kit! Functional and favorite kind of handcraft! As always, it arrived very quickly (international shipping no less!) and neatly packaged. Thank you so much!

On receipt of your order, I'll confirm whether the item you’ve requested is in stock. If it is, I'll usually post it to you within 48 hours.

I can ship anywhere, shipping costs are given for each item.

For larger / more valuable items, the shipping costs stated already include UK signed for postage or Tracked postage for International shipping but I do also offer some shipping upgrades for most other domestic and international packages, which you will see as an option in your cart when you check out. One of the upgrades is for tracked international postage, which is the best international service available at a reasonable cost. International Tracked items receive priority handling and benefit from an online tracking facility so you can check your items's progress right through to delivery. If you're in Continental Europe and would like to upgrade your Standard Shipping item to the tracked service, please message for a quotation, as it may be lower than shown at checkout.

I'm also happy to post direct to a giftee and include a hand written message - either include this on your order or convo me separately, whichever is easier for you.
