This charming needle case from the early 19th century was originally stitched on perforated paper. However, I had to bring it up to date, quicker to make, and something to be useful. I have taken large 20 count linen and the original colors to demonstrate the same affect that is easier to stitch and a great class for a beginner. The bright greens and cream make a lovely setting for the house and the floral lining is the garden. Using heat bond enables you to finish the project quickly and easily and have exactly the same outcome as if it were perforated paper, while being stronger and long lasting.
The house needle case came into being because I believe that the old needlework needs to be preserved and copied so that we can enjoy them as practical items.
Kit includes: 20 count linen, silks, lining, heat bond, ribbon, needle felt.
Bring to class: Scissors, Needles and any other supplies normally in your sewing box. Magnification and lighting if needed.
