A sweet needle case, heart pincushion and hanging lavender sachet bag handmade in a beautiful vintage Laura Ashley cotton fabric and lace. These sewing accessories and lavender sachet make a pretty but useful and practical gift for a sewing friend or relative, or to keep for yourself. The needle wallet and pincushion take care of your pins and needles while the lavender bag will keep the moths and insects away from your clothes, fabric or wool stash.
The needle book is approximately 7.5 cm x 8.5 cm (3" x3 1/2") when folded, 22cm (8 3/4") long when opened. I have lined it in a plain blue complementary fabric and added 2 sheets of pure wool grey felt giving 4 pages for needle storage. The case closes with a small white press stud.
The heart pin cushion is approximately 9cm (3 1/2") at its widest and just over 9cm long. The back is the same plain blue material used to line the needlecase. I have added a white hanging ribbon so the heart can be used as a hanging decoration as well as a pincushion. The heart is finished off with a small white fabric rose. I have firmly stuffed the heart with polyester fibre stuffing, compliant with BS safety regulations.
The hanging lavender sachet is in the same pretty vintage Laura Asley fabric (both sides) , edged with white lace and again finished with a small white fabric rose.The lavender bag is approximately 10 cm x 10 cm (4" x 4") and is filled with pure organic dried lavender from one of the finest growing regions in Provence - cultivated on the slopes of Mont Ventoux.
Lavender is a natural deterrent to moths and insects as well as having a lovely scent so a lavender bag is ideal to add to your fabric or wool stash, clothes drawers, hang within your wardrobe, your car, caravan or use as a scented hanging decoration. Great for gifts, too. The scent of lavender is also known to help with relaxation so placing a lavender sachet under a pillow can help to give a relaxing night’s sleep.
