It is such a pleasure to use beautiful tools. This set of tools is sure to please the seamstress or embroiderer in your life. There are 3 items in this set: A felt-covered tape measure, a needle book, and a pin cushion. Each item is made with sturdy 100% wool felt, hand-cut and hand-stitched by me, using my own original designs. Each item has a black background which makes the rich purple shades of the flowers really "pop." Sizes and details of the items are listed below.
Tape Measure: The tape measure is .5 inches tall and 2 inches in diameter. The tape opens to a length of 46 inches. There are centimeters and millimeters printed on one side, inches on the other. The tape locks in place for handy measuring, and rolls back up when you press down on the button under the center of the flower on the top. The tape measure is made from sturdy flexible plastic, with a red pull tab, in a hard plastic case.
Needle Book: The needle book is 4 inches tall and 3 inches wide. Inside the felt layers of the cover, I've enclosed a piece of stiff flexible plastic. The covers close easily with a sturdy snap. Inside the book, there are 4 "leaves" of soft purple felt for storing a collection of pins and needles. I've also crafted a handy little pocket inside the cover of the needle book, to store a needle threader, a loop of spare thread, or project notes.
Pin Cushion: The pin cushion is 2.5 inches high and 3 inches in diameter. It is stuffed with 100% pure wool roving. The lanolin in the wool roving helps to maintain rust-free needles and pins. Around the edge, I've appliqued more purple flowers for extra prettiness. I've used a metal jar lid as a base for the pin cushion, so it sits flat and securely.
Pins, needle, and needle threader shown in the photos are from my sewing box, and will not be included with your purchase.

If you have severe allergies to cats, please be cautious when purchasing from my shop. I do keep the kitties away from my stitching projects, but there is always the possibility of a stray cat hair being inadvertently included in your package.
The items in my shop are decorative, and most of them include small beads, buttons, sequins, or small pieces of felt. These are potential choking hazards, so most of my creations are not suitable as gifts for small children.
