Inspired by my love of vintage fabrics and embroidery I made this super pretty little rustic, cottage, shabby chic style needle case from an array of my vintage fabric and lace pieces over which I machine and hand stitched details. I have appliqued one of my own freestyle machine embroidered deer motifs, which I 'drew' with the sewing machine on cotton calico fabric and hand stitched to the front. It is finished off with two acrylic ( I don't use animal products) felt pieces inside, a vintage button and piece of vintage cotton lace.
I have carefully and lovingly added lots of slow stitching to give it that vintage, hand made feel.
This piece has been padded with batting, making it nice and full so the inside covers can be used for needles and pins too.
This is a one off piece of textile art, made with loving attention to detail in order to create something unique and inspiring.
Would make an ideal gift for an avid sewer or embroider.
The size, when closed is approx. 3 1/4 inches wide x 4 1/4 inches tall (8 1/2 x 11cm)
