Join me for 3 hours to build a Sweet Bag inspired by Helena Cary Caldwell. The original was found in her native land the beautiful island of Nantucket, Massachusetts. Her daughter Jane donated this item for my designing project I present to you for your collection of needlework accessories. The 28/30 count linen banding is stitched with Classic Colorworks, Weeks Dye Works and Gentleart Threads. The accessories a small pin cushion and scissor fob with prefinished beaded tassel are stitched on 32 count natural linen. The bag is 4” round on the base and the bag vintage fabric is subject to change. The vintage fabric shown is no longer but if you have something in your stash bring it along. I will have a replacement in your kit. Join me as I share this journey into drawstring bag finishing!
Kit includes: Paper Mache Box, Lining, Interfacing, Stitch N Bond, Needles, Ribbon, Over-dyed Floss, Linen, Banding, Cording, Tassel, scissors, and all finishing instructions.
