Enamel pin of Carrie Hawk's artwork, Maneki Neko Cats, re-purposed into a beautiful needleminder! This little guy is the Luck Cat. Luck kitty is in traditional tricolors (Calico, Tortie & White) like the Japanese Bobtail cat. With his raised right paw and koban coin he brings good fortune to his owner. Carrie gave me her consent to turn her pins into needleminders, so I am making sure she gets all of the credit for this adorable kitty. The pin is based on artwork that can be found at the following link: https://tigerpixie.com/shop-cat-art/prints-maneki-neko-cats
And guess what - some of Carrie's artwork can also be purchased as cross stitch charts via Heaven and Earth Designs! Those can be found here: http://www.heavenandearthdesigns.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=3_42
Needleminders are indispensable for holding your needles while either switching between floss colors, or when they are not in use. The cute part sits above the fabric, while a strong rare earth magnet holds it in place with a washer on the back of the fabric. Once you use one, you'll wonder how you got along all this time without one!
This needleminder is enamel on metal, with a rare earth magnet, and zinc washer. Approximately 3 cm wide by 4.4 cm high.
***PLEASE NOTE: Rare earth magnets are very strong - keep out of reach of pets and children when not in use. Do not store your needleminder near any electronic items that are sensitive to magnetic fields, such as smartphones, laptops/hard drives, CRT TVs and monitors, electronic medical implants/devices, and also credit/debit cards or anything that utilizes a magnetic strip.
