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 a lovely floral meadow print with a white background called 'Wild Flowers' 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 interfaced with woven cotton to give structure and softly padded with fusible fleece. The purple soft cotton lining is also interfaced for strength and crispness. The case is closed with a pretty painted wooden button featuring a rabbit 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 gold metallic 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 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.
