This needle book is made from my daughter’s much loved (but now too small) crocheted cardigan that I have felted to carry on its life!
Sewn on the outside there is a piece of reclaimed trim, ribbon and a button for closure. Approx 4¾”x 3¼” – 12cm x 8cm.
Inside the needle book is lined in reclaimed cotton – a scrap of printed (French) tea towel and pockets (to slip in all kinds of useful notions) made from an upcycled shirt cuff.
The ‘pages’ are pink and blue felt with zigzag edges. I find my own needle book very useful, I’m sure that you would find one like this useful too.
I have pin cushions that I can sell together with this for a combined price of £14. I also have many more needlecases that I just haven't got round to listing - contact me if you are interested in any that you see.
This is shipped from the UK in recycled packaging. When items are bought at the same time and sent together there will be reduced postage if possible.
Please contact me if you are a UK buyer and wish to pay by cheque or Bank Transfer.
I usually ship items on the day after purchase. If this is not possible then I will contact you with a postage date. I send by second class post with proof of purchase. If you would like tracking or insurance then please contact me and I can give you an amended price.
I use recycled and reclaimed materials for packaging.
International Buyers Please Note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Please give plenty of time for the item to arrive - I cannot speed up the postal system. Mail to the USA generally takes up to a couple of weeks to arrive depending on the time of year and the vigilance of the customs service.
Immediate payment is appreciated. Paypal only is accepted for international customers. For UK customers I can sometimes accept UK cheques or Bank Transfer payment in sterling if you contact me first.
I can reserve some items for later payment if you contact me to discuss this.
If no payment is made after three days, and I don't hear from you, I'll re-list the item.
Returns & exchanges
Please contact me first if there are any problems with your purchase. I will try to resolve any issues as best as I can.
My Etsy shop is full of things made from recycled, reclaimed, upcycled and repurposed materials - they are not shiny and new - there may be small signs of their previous life that add to their charm and individuality.
