Pattern i95, STRAWBERRY FAYRE by Carolyn Pearce for Inspiration Studios, Featuring Surface Embroidery
Fabulous heart-shaped necessaire with pretty surface embroidery.
Inspirations Studios describe this project:
"A palette of soft greens and berry pinks plus a bounty of exquisite details make this sewing necessaire an essential for every needleworker.
When opened the necessaire contains pockets for essentials plus a pincushion, needle pages and thread rings and it closes with a Dorset button and strawberry cord.
The upper edge of each heart is finished with a beaded edge and a tassel of strawberry emery, pinwheel and thimble holder swings from the lower tips."
This booklet includes complete instructions and full size pattern. 19 pages, full color illustrations and a list of required supplies are all included.
