The Scissors pocket - fits inside the lowest pocket on the roll. The back has a nice magnet for a book of needles, a needle rest - or just to keep the scissors inside. The fancy pins were a gift from Vickie , who blogs at A Stitcher's Story.
This set is STITCHED - just not finished. I need to sew the bottom of the front panels [to form a pockets] and sew the small piece into a pincushion. I may use some tatted trim. Not sure how I'll embellish the pincushion - it seems so small.
The stitched initials are from BBD A Stitcher's Journey. The patterns, by Sandra Sullivan Homespun Elegance, Ltd., are pictured below. I used Week's Baked Apple on the roll. Simply Shaker Cidermill Brown for scissors, couple initials. Also used Simply Shaker Heirloom Gold for the initial on the roll. Dried Thyme [GAST] for all the green. Crescent Colours Used Brick on scissor pocket, fold over + soon to be pincushion. All the Blue from skein of Needle Necessities, Inc. #1342. Amber Pearl Buttons, Scissors Charm, safety pins. And, will add tatting this or next week.
While hunting down my amber pearl buttons ... I found my HE ABC ornament/fob pattern + supplies AND my Bent Creek snapper project. They had been hiding from me -- I knew I put them someplace, and at last unearthed them. I pulled out some fibers for the BBD Her Sampler.
I have mixed a few silk and cotton fibers. I have linen, too. It is hiding! I want to finished the Homespun Elegance pieces first - then will pick up the alphabet sampler. If you have not seen the sampler - visit the Blackbird Design blog and follow the link to the free pattern.
